Updates on medical bag additions

In the recent article titled, Something to add to your medical kit, I received very solid information from several individuals and have adjusted my kit appropriately. As recommended in the article GET TRAINING and CLEAN THE WOUND OUT! 20131110-185926.jpg

The following item has been or will be replaced.

  • Peroxide, in exchange I am replacing this with 4 20-ml syringes with 18 gauge rubber catheter tubing about 3″ in length. Each is sealed after cleaning and using sterile conditions into two ziplock bags alternatively you can vacuum seal the items separately. Each of the syringes is filled with sterile water irrigating solution.

Now in the previous article I did make clear that I was not telling the reader everything I carry in the medical kits. I will add that I also carry butterfly bandages and regular suture materials and have had training and experience with both. While I am not state certified in any medical profession my experience and practice allow me to easily fill the role for most basic medical emergencies and some more acute issues as well. I have been shot, stabbed, slashed and more, I applied self care to all of these issues. I have also worked with individuals involved in extremely devastating car accidents and kept individuals fro, dying of heart attacks and succumbing to shock. new cards

Again, none of this can or will ever equal training and regular practice, however, with this experience I have found that most individuals can with a small amount of concentrated training become proficient enough to prevent future issues from costing them or those they are with their lives. I highly recommend training and absolutely recommend practice with individuals who have had said training when possible. Front view lspine

Take a first aid course, cpr or better spend the money to take EMT classes. Absorb the information they share and that you will learn. Share with others and be willing as always to accept feedback regardless the nature of said feedback. Never think you know everything and always remember it is necessary for growth to fail, though with medical approaches failure is much better when training, rather then in the field.

As always, be sure to check out the awesome agorists to the right of the blog. Need silver? Get it from Suns of Liberty Mint. Need sweet treats for that special someone? The Okashi House can fill that need!
