Medic bag
Medical equipment #9: Dental medic kit.
Having a
dental first aid kit handy is a necessary component of
survival often overlooked on the topic of self reliance. The
Complete dental first aid kit, right, will have you feeling prepared.

Medical equipment #10: Medical reference book.

  • Emergency War Surgery: The Survivalist's Medical Desk
    Reference, a book by the Department of Defense. Military
    surgeons assume a leadership role in combat casualty care.
    It's the ultimate prepper guide to own on the topic of trauma
    surgery. This reference guide features 200 illustrations
    demonstrating proper field techniques.

    prescription -- simply they are not available for retail. What
    then? The answer is Oral IV pictured right. This oral
    hydration fluid will go a long way towards preventing
    dehydration.

  • Ammonia Inhalants. To revive someone in an emergency,
    the way smelling salts revived people of the past, ammonia
    inhalant, pictured left, is an unusual addition to your medic
    bag. Don't overlook this important addition to your prepper's
    first aid and medic bag.

  • Benzalkonium Chloride Towelettes. Alcohol-free and Latex-
    free, Benzalkonium Chloride Towelettes, pictured right, are
    non-toxic and non-irritating. They will not sting! This
    antiseptic / germicide is used to prevent risk of infection.  
    The power of benzalkonium chloride provides bactericidal and
    cleansing action for both hospital and personal use, and yet
    it's gentle enough to use everyday.

Happy endings...
Hopefully you never need to  use any of this equipment. It's
always best to have the upper hand and be prepared.

* These products are not intended for ordinary use, ONLY for use when help is not
available. Before you use any product for health care, consult your physician or primary
healthcare provider and seek the appropriate advice and supervision.
Medical equipment #7: Blood pressure cuff.
Learn to monitor blood pressure with your own Aneroid
Sphygmomanometer!


Medical equipment #8: Stethoscope.
A single lumen stethoscope is a good one for beginners. When it
comes to buying a stethoscope, accoustics are everything. You
can buy your own quality, yet inexpensive stethoscope on
Amazon, pictured right. Learn how to use one in your prepping.
Medical equipment #5. Tourniquet.
Use of a tourniquet is for highly trained individuals. Get one only
if yo know how to use it properly. For example, a tourniquet is
NOT for snake bites as many people mistakenly believe.


Medical equipment #6: Burn station.
Components of a burn station could include:
  • Aspirin**as an analgesic (pain reliever).
  • Aloe vera plant (aloe vera gels, may include other
    substances)
  • Cold packs
  • Cling film (Saran wrap)
  • Disposable gloves
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Ibuprofen as an analgesic alternative to aspirin (Advil,
    Exedrin, Motrin)
  • Sterile gauze
  • WaterJel external analgesic containing 2% lidocaine*

The WaterJel Burn station, pictured to the right of WaterJel burn
station, is a smaller version of a larger Burn Treatment Module for
treating and dressing burns.
Medical equipment #4: Trauma shears.
Trauma sheers will help you quickly cut off clothing or belts to get
to the injuries. These special scissors, pictured below, are angled
to get through the fabric, so you can access the wound as
effectively as possible.

Ordinary scissors ma risk even injury because they are not
angled. The most important consideration when selecting trauma
sheers is to get a good quality metal and avoid shears the plastic
ones, which break.
Medical equipment #3: Steri Strip Skin Closures.
3M Steri Strip Skin Closures Hypo-allergenic skin closures hold
firmly and comfortably to small wounds and reinforces suture
sites. Porous, strong adhesion. These skin closures conform to
skin movements. As a reminder, such skin closures will help you
manage small or shallow wounds in an emergency. They are not a
substitute for proper medical care, but for use in transporting to
care or to aid when help is not available.

  • Tip: An important note about the use of such skin
    closures: they are the first level of wound care of hemostatis
    (the process which causes bleeding to stop). While these
    skin closure strips help close the wound, they do not offer a
    protective padding, so you must add a protective sterile pad
    on top, as with a sterile gauze and tape bandage covering.
Medical equipment #3: Skin Stapler (also a Skin
Staple Remover).
Skin stapling to close lacerations should only be done when there
is "no reason to leave a wound open" as explained by Dr. Bones
in his video below. If you're purchasing a skin stapler, be sure to
get the skin staple remover, pictured right. Also, please note that
butterfly closures, steristrips or even super glue can be options to
skin stapling.
Surgical scalpel blades

  • Suture needle and thread.

  • Foreceps. Use forceps, pictured immediate right, to pick up
    skin and hold in place. They look like tweezers.

  • Hemostats. If you're a surgeon; however, you  probably own
    hemostats that cost you upwards of $75, so don't expect the
    quality that matches such a high price tag. If you're looking
    for a kit that will get you through an extreme prepping
    emergency, then this is the medic kit to ease your comfort,
    and you can get the kit for around $13.20 and with available
    FREE Shipping. It's better to have something in your medical
    arsenal that can help save a life, rather than nothing at all.

Here's how to Suture with the items listed above:
Scalpels. Buy scalpels in three sizes (#10 fine work, #11, #15).
Pictured below are #15 scalpels. Buy them in convenient sterile
packages...

Medic bag equipment and supplies for preppers

Prepper' Guide to stocking up on medical equipment:
Wondering what medical equipment should preppers have? Here
is our list of the top "must have" medical equipment and supplies
for preppers:

Having a medical instrument kit is taking medical preparedness to
the extreme, and yet well worth considering.  In an end of the
world as we know it survival scenario, it may possible to have a
severe injury and medical help or equipment unavailable. It's also
possible to have someone knowledgeable in your group, such as
medic or nurse, who does not have proper tools to perform life-
saving surgery. For just such a scenario, preppers have sterile
medical equipment ready.

Stocking up on Medical Equipment

Preppers go beyond a typical first aid kit: they stock up on
medical equipment for the day when there is no doctor...

Medical equipment and supplies #1: Suture supplies.

  • Nitrile Exam Gloves. The ideal solution for individuals
    sensitive to natural rubber latex and donning powder, Safe-
    Touch Nitrile Exam gloves contain no allergy causing natural
    rubber proteins. Did you know... Nitrile gloves are latex free!

  • Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub Solution. Povidone iodine
    solution (or Betadine) antiseptic microbicide for skin prepping
    and cleaning. Dr. Bones (a.k.a. Joseph Alton, M.D.) uses
    povidone Iodine in the example.

  • Lidocaine + Syringe. Lidocaine is a numbing solution, which
    in full-strength requires can require prescription. Numbing
    can be done with ice, but it's not as effective. There are
    numbing solutions available for tattoos, as well there is
    Lidocane and over-the-counter medicines to reduce pain.
