The most important thing about bleed management is being able to identify what kind of leak the person has. Treatment for an arterial/venous/capillary bleed differs. Colour isn't the best indicator because lighting conditions change, what I look for is flow pattern. If it's coming out like a heartbeat or squirting it's arterial and a tourniquet is a good idea. If it's flowing smoothly and there's a lot of it it's probably venous and can probably be controlled with direct pressure. If it's flowing smoothly and there isn't a lot, it's capillary and direct pressure will stop it. For pressure bandages, I like these. If I don't have that, wrap a towel or shirt around your fist and grab/press the wound hard. You can swap it out for something better but that will buy you time and give you something that's easy to remove from the patient before you're ready to move them. If it's something like an abdominal or chest wound where there might be internal injuries, you don't want to be super aggressive but the bleed will kill them faster than most things you could do.

While CATs are decently made, I prefer the SOF-T tourniquet. The velcro on a CAT can be difficult to use when you're drunk on adrenaline and readjusting it becomes difficult as blood coagulates in the hooks and loop. They also have a plastic windlass and I'm very weary of plastic because the goal is to twist as tight as possible. SOF-Ts use a metal one which I have a lot more confidence in.

The quick and easy way to handle a massive bleed is:

  1. Take a step back and look at the wound as a science project. The patient's reaction to their injury will distract you and your first impulse is to calm them down which wastes time, and if it's something like a leg amputation you might have under two minutes to work with. Note how many injuries, where they are, which one is bleeding the most, what type of bleeding is going on.

  2. On extremities with an arterial bleed, jam your knee hard into their groin/armpit to give yourself as much time as possible. This will hurt and they'll hate you for it.

  3. Put three fingers above the highest wound if it's on the upper portion of the extremity or a few inches above the elbow/knee if it's on the lower portion, place the windlass of the tourniquet directly over the artery

  4. After the tourniquet is on, tighten the windlass until they hate you more than the injury and secure it. Wrap the excess strap around the windlass to further protect it from accidental bumps. It should be tight enough that the bleeding is completely stopped and if there's anything left of that limb you shouldn't be able to feel a pulse below it.

  5. I keep a sharpie in my medbag because they're useful in a lot of situations. In this one I mark the time on their forehead or throat if they have a lot of hair. Somewhere that will be completely visible to the surgeon removing the tourniquet so that they know how long the tissue has been without blood.

  6. Unless you know for absolute certain that you've treated their only injury, like you've directly witnessed them dropping the saw on their leg and there is no chance they could have had additional injuries they're not yet aware of or that the injury could have penetrated or if you only have witness accounts, do a blood sweep. Start from the head and try to feel as much of their body as possible, checking your hands for blood every time you reach the end of some piece or feel a change of texture on your fingertips. If you do feel or see blood, remove that piece of clothing and treat secondary injuries before covering them back up. The patient might say they have no secondary injuries but they're also distracted by a more intense pain and they're probably not mentally sound at that moment. Missing one is easy when everything is already saturated.
u/LockyBalboaPrime · 8 pointsr/guns

Keep in mind that I'm speaking generally and I'm not covering all of the options. I don't have a medical background but I have taken a fucking shitload of classes over the years, easily in the 500+ hour range for survival, medical, first response, and trauma classes. I've also taught them many times but mostly at a lower level than what gunshots would be.

My IFAKs are for big bad things, I keep a small first aid pack for boo boos but normally those are rub dirt on it and duct tape it. My real IFAKs are for "oh god, this dude is going to die like right now" kind of wounds.

  1. Never buy anything from eBay.
  2. Never underpay for something. If 99 stores have it for $50 and you find it on sale for $5, it's fake. And fake medical equipment will literally get you killed. Suck it up, pay full price.
  3. Name brands cost more. Name brands also care about their kit and it matters.

    That in mind - all of my IFAKs are homemade. I get supplies in semi-bulk and make 10+ IFAKs because I literally have them everywhere and I rotate out old/expired stuff as needed. I shit you not that I have 4 in my shooting supplies, 1 in my kitchen, 2 in the workshop, 2 in the car, etc. It's not cheap but nothing in life is. If you don't want to be that fanatical about it, getting a kit might be cheaper if you're making one or two.

    All of mine MUST have:

  • Gloves
  • Tape
  • Pressure bandage
  • Clotting agent, normally sponges
  • Gauze
  • EMT shears
  • Tourniquet

    Other stuff like for burns, heatstroke, hypothermia, etc I have in some of my bags but not most of them.

    Cover the basics:

  • Adventure Medical Kit
  • CAT Tourniquet from NAR
  • Israeli Bandage
  • Madison EMT Shear
  • Condor Rip-Away EMT Bag


    There is some arguments that can be made about this setup that I won't get into, these are what I like and trust though. I also normally add some extra gloves, tape, gauze, and QuickClot to each bag.

    The Adventure Medical Kit is cheap and has the core stuff. Nice easy package too, quick to buy a few of them and stash them places if I don't have time to make real bags right then.

    Israeli Bandage is the gold standard for a compression bandage. Watch some YT on how to use one, maybe get to so that you can kill one right off the bat to learn how to use it. Remember - once a bandage is opened, it's use it or lose it. Don't need infections because you used a 5 year old bandage that was stored wrong.

    Madison shears are solid.

    I like CAT style tourniquets and I trust North American Rescue since they're one of the huge massive names in the market. All of mine are NAR CAT tourniquets.

    Condor gets a bad name because of Airsoft kids that wear their stuff all the time, but this bag is really nice. It's fairly cheap, for an IFAK bag, it holds a lot, it's sturdy, and the rip away is really nice. I keep these on the outside of my range bag mostly. The rip away is nice since I can just grab the handle and pull.

    Final note - remember that an IFAK isn't just for you to use. It's also for other people to use on you. Make sure they're marked as an IFAK. Mine are all either bright red with a medical cross on it or at least have a big red medical cross on it in a place that everyone can see.
u/PriusCop · 7 pointsr/securityguards

I wouldn’t recommend buying a “prebuilt” IFAK. They can get very expensive when you can build your own for half the price.


TRAUMA KIT

u/halterscalter · 7 pointsr/Firearms

For those interested I did some research and decided to also purchase a couple of these ($8 each):
http://www.amazon.com/Ever-Ready-First-Aid-Compression/dp/B003DPVERM/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

and 1 of these ($27):
http://www.amazon.com/C-A-T-Combat-Application-Tourniquet-version/dp/B003IPZRYI

There's plenty of Youtube explanations on how to use it, worth watching a few just so you don't need to be reading instructions when it counts.

u/AK47Uprising · 6 pointsr/preppers

Pizza's idea of the Sawyer was an excellent suggestion and would be one of my top recommendations as well. To hit some other categories for ideas:

Viral/Contamination:

u/CL_3F · 5 pointsr/bugout

Always better to build one yourself.

Here's mine. Might give you some ideas.

6x6 Med Pouch (Modified with fingernail polish)

  1. Personal prescription meds inside quart ziploc for additional water resistance.
  2. 2x 4inch Gauze rolls
  3. 8x 4x4 sterile gauze pads
  4. 2x tampons 2x menstrual pads (these are meant more for backups for wife rather than wound care)
  5. 4x pair sterile surgical gloves
  6. 4x 4x4 tegaderm
  7. various butterfly closures and bandaids
  8. 1x triangle bandage
  9. Immodium & Pepto tabs
  10. Tylenol
  11. [redacted because people lack reading comprehension and I'm not going to debate it.]
  12. 2x Epi Pen (These are in case I have a run in with sunflower seeds.)
  13. 10x Alcohol swab
  14. Burn gel (the lidocane is good for more then just burns.) x10
  15. Antibiotic ointment x10
  16. Sting wipes x10
  17. 1x tweezers
  18. 1x tick remover
  19. Medipore tape
  20. Clotting Sponges
  21. Shears
  22. Israeli Bandage x2
  23. Chest Vent
  24. CAT Gen3
  25. SAM splint
  26. Hibiclens
  27. Mini USB light
  28. Bic Pen

    Not all of this fits inside the med pouch itself. It's meant for quick access to the critical items.
u/golson3 · 4 pointsr/nursing

For immediate lifesaving type stuff, without any tools or resources at your disposal, it seems like you did alright. If you want to assess more quickly in the future, you have to throw out the head to toe assessment that is more in tune with what we do with a stable patient on a med surg unit. In the military, we got some really basic instruction on casualty assessment, focused on what we can do at the scene to help save a life. Identifying injuries and relaying that to first responders is a big one. So is identifying arterial bleeding and doing something about it. The nemonic device we had was "rub both balls slowly for better head".

Responsiveness

Breathing

Bleeding

Shock

Fractures

Burns

Head injury

You might want to keep a BP cuff, CAT (you can probably find them cheaper), a NPA, and some pressure dressings like the Israeli bandage in the trunk of your car. Be able to call out injuries to the paramedics when they get there to save them time. Also, if they have neck/head/back pain, try to get them to minimize movement as much as possible. We used this book when I was in, but they don't let Joe Blow start IVs anymore:

https://www.mtu.edu/arotc/cadet-portal/docs/ISO871_Student_Self_Study.pdf

ETA: look for stuff you can do something about, in addition for information to relay. If you see copious bleeding, get pressure on it or apply a tourniquet (if on a limb). If their face is all smashed up or or they're unresponsive but still have a pulse and are breathing, put a NPA in.

u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/collapse

Multipurpose waterproof match case. I prefer this case because it's not much bigger than other waterproof cases, but has other stuff built into it. I put waterproof matches in it along with the striker strip from the package. The whistle is good for signaling. The other functions are marginal, so I supplement them with the actual things, which consist of a signal mirror, lensatic compass, and emergency fire starter.

A stove and solid fuel. I was pretty impressed with this particular one when I received it. It's stainless steel, well constructed, and you can store four fuel tabs inside of it.

A multitool and a fixed-blade knife. I don't have either of these specific models, but they seem pretty decent.

A folding shovel. These are good for burying waste, helping a car gain traction in the winter, etc.

A self-adhesive bandage. This is a three-pack. The single one cost $4 locally. Buy this one and leave the other two in your medicine cabinet. Wrap the remaining one around a piece of cardboard and put it in your emergency pack.

Disposable antibacterial wipes.

Antimicrobial silver gel. Like Neosporin, but better. Stays on a wound for multiple days without covering, and the colloidal silver is a strong antimicrobial agent. See the oligodynamic effect.

Dust masks. This is for a 50-pack, but for half the price, you only get 10 at a local store. These help prevent you from spreading germs if you're sick, and keep you from inhaling macroscopic particles if you're in a dusty/dirty area.

QuikClot sponge bandage. This helps to stop bleeding from major injuries. Along with an Israeli battle dressing you have two great ways to help stem major bleeding, separately or combined.

Local anesthetic for stings. Good for numbing injuries other than stings, too.

Sterile pads, 4” x 4”.

Sunscreen.

Cigarette-adapter power inverter. Good for charging small electronics.

Hand warmers.

Work gloves and watchcap.

All of the following are probably best bought in stores or scrounged up around the house:

Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, all with obvious uses.

Aspirin, for heart attacks and pain, ibuprofen for pain, anti-histamine for allergic reactions, and Imodium or off-brand equivalent for diarrhea. I can't stress having Imodium enough. Having cramps and shits can render you unable to do anything for long periods of time, even more so than other ailments.

A disposable razor can be used to shave to keep up appearances, or to shave the area around a wound for better bandaging.

Maxi pads and tampons can be used as intended as well as to prevent bleeding from wounds.

Toilet paper. Wrap it around a piece of cardboard to save space.

Bandanas or an old shirt can be used to make a sling, protect yourself from the sun, filter macroscopic particles out of water, filter dirty/dusty air, etc.

Hot chocolate with caffeine added can be used to help stay alert.

Lighters are a must-have to start a fire.

I also have a Ziploc bag containing about ten cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly. They're great firestarters.

Cash. Keep various bills and coins in an amount that you think is suitable for emergencies.

Maps. Carry folding maps of your area, state, and surrounding states.

I think that covers everything that I have. There's a lot of redundancy, but it all fits in my bag, so I'm happy with it. I'm definitely interested in hearing thoughts as to what can be added or changed.

u/Maximum_Ordinate · 3 pointsr/Hunting

Buy yourself a decent bolt action .22 or a shotgun, a good 3-5" fixed blade knife, a blaze orange hat or vest, and a decent little first aid kit (don't forget a tourniquet).


Step 1: Take a hunters safety/education class.

Some states have classes exclusively for adults. This will give you some basic, but good info on gun/bow safety and state laws pertaining to hunting. In addition, they should have pamphlets that will outline the different hunting seasons, game animals, invasive species, and state/federal hunting areas.

These classes might also help you meet some more experienced folks who could bring you along or offer some valuable advice.


Step 2: Learn how to use your gear.

Your ability with your gear can mean the difference between success and failure on the hunt--and in some cases life and death (especially pertaining to your med kit).

Let's start with the rifle. I like bolt action .22's. You can get a very accurate gun and learn how to use it for very little money. Using a bolt action .22 with iron sights forces the shooter to learn the fundamentals of marksmanship, building a solid foundation for the future.

I like the Savage MkII and the Ruger American.

With either rifle I'd recommend adding a peep sight and a regular 2 point sling.
Both are accurate and inexpensive rifles that you can shoot day in and day out for years.

You should be able to find a range with at least 50 yards to sight in (aka zero) your rifle. If you need guidance here, there are plenty of online resources, however, you'd do better to ask an experienced shooter for a hand. Be sure to use the same ammo for zero and hunting.

For shotguns you can't beat the versatility of a Remington 870 or Mossberg 500. Get either gun in 12 or 20 gauge. The beauty of these two is that you are always a simple barrel change away from being able to shoot birdshot (birds small game) or slugs (everything else).

With a good .22 and a good shotgun, you should be able to hunt most wild game in North America. There are better calibers and rifles for specific hunting applications but those two will do it all.

What I don't recommend for hunting rifles/shotguns and why:

1 I don't like scopes (at first). Forcing yourself to learn on iron sights means you develop a firm foundation in the fundamentals. I remember wanting a scope for my .22 so bad, so my dad made me a deal. I had to kill 100 red squirrels or starlings and 10 groundhogs before he'd let me add a scope. It took me the better part of a summer to accomplish this but I walked away from that summer being able to put lead on just about anything within 150 yards of that little rifle.

2 I don't like autoloaders (at first). Simply because shooting a bolt gun means you have one, maybe two shots to get the job done. You learn to make ever shot count. Once you are proficient, go wild.

3 I don't like tactical/tacticool rifles for beginners or really hunting for that matter. They are usuallly auto loaders (see #2), heavier, and more expensive. You don't feel so bad taking your $230 Savage through brambles, tripping over roots and dropping it, or leaning it up against a rusty fence post. If you don't trust me, look at what the professional hunters use.

Extras: buy a quality, brass rod cleaning kit and some decent gun oil (or CLP) for deep cleans. Keep a [Bore Snake](.22 .223 .25 CAL Bore Snake Cleaner Kit Cord Rope Brass https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JKSNVTK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_XRfGzbN7P8Z58) in an extra pocket for the times you get dirt or debris in the barrel.


Get yourself a good knife. I always have my pocket knife (a CRKT M21-02G) and a skinner when I'm hunting.

For a pocket knife use what suits you. For a skinner I really like knives like the Schrade Old Timer 158 for general skinning and this blade from Ontario Knife.

You also need a good way to keep your knives sharp. I've had a lot of luck with the. [Lansky System](Lansky Deluxe 5-Stone Sharpening System https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000B8IEA4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_85fGzbBRJDH6K).


Last, please get yourself a decent med kit. Too many people have died in the woods due to a knife accident or gun accident that could have been easily treated.

You can easily make yourself a basic kit or buy one like [this](Ever Ready First Aid Meditac Tactical Trauma IFAK Kit with Trauma Pack Quickclot and Israeli Bandage in Molle Pouch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GAAMS2M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_iagGzb76NGQZJ) pre-made.

This kit has everything you need except for a tourniquet like [this](Tourniquet - (Black) Recon Medical Gen 3 Mil-Spec Kevlar Metal Windlass Aluminum Lightweight First Aid Tactical Swat Medic Pre-Hospital Life Saving Hemorrhage Control Registration Card (1 Pack) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ETMVQOI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fcgGzbSAMKAWS) and an Israeli Bandage like [this](Ever Ready Bandage Battle Dressing First Aid Compression Bandage, 6 Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003DPVERM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_1cgGzb9C9H5WP).

You can learn to use all this stuff over the course of an hour via YouTube. You would do better to find a nurse, paramedic, or Navy Corpsman to give you a crash course in the use of the contents of your IFAK. If you can find a Corpsman, they are probably the best for this kind of thing. Lots of good tips and tricks for field use...plus you can pay them in beer.

Don't forget to add extras like any medication you might need, chapstick, Bayer aspirin (good for headaches and heart attacks), a little tube of antibacterial ointment, and a couple fabric bandages.

If you won't carry this on your person, keep it in your vehicle.

For good practice I like squirrel and rabbit hunting. Makes you consider a lot about safety, a lot about taking only the good shots, plus they are easy to clean and good to eat.


Last learn how to use what you kill.

If you are hunting varmits, that is one thing. I shoot invasive species (when legal), and varmits that are causing a nuisance and that is reason enough for me.

If you are hunting anything else for exclusively for sport, please use it. You can use some of the books referenced earlier to learn about skinning and field dressing. I like to watch shows like Meat Eater, to learn better ways to use the meat I've harvested. Once you get into cooking game meat, you will wonder why you ever went to the store for meat.

Just don't forget that hunting is about stewardship and learning. It's a lifelong pursuit that is very rewarding.

Always be safe, always be ethical, always be responsible, always have fun.

Edit: If you ever find yourself in south central or southwest Michigan, I can help you with anything I've outlined above. I'm a lifelong hunter, a lifelong shooter, a small arms instructor in the military, a certified combat lifesaver, and a decent game cook.

u/OddTheViking · 3 pointsr/VEDC

Large gauze pads or bandages and cloth first aid tape. In my experience most injuries that are not a sprained or broken limb are going to be large scrapes or cuts.

If you are worried about more serous injury, some quick-clot and some larger bandages. I carry an "Israeli" bandage which is designed for gunshot wounds. Unlikely I will need it for that, but I am more likely to see an accident with a knife, axe, or saw.

As others have said, a couple Ace type bandages and a SAM splint.

For less serious stuff, some moleskin (for blisters), burn cream, cortizone cream, and some OTC meds:

  • Ibuprofen
  • Acetaminophen
  • Anti-diarrhea
  • Benadryl
  • Anti-gas
  • Phenylephrin (decongestant)

    I also have some prescription pain killers left over from a surgery (Tylenol with codeine) and some indomethacin ( anti-inflammation used to treat gout)

    On top of that I always have at least a couple days of prescription meds.
u/Paul_Swanson · 3 pointsr/Survival

> fully-equipped backpack ready for a survival experience ... in areas of woodland

I say your first step is to make a very specific goal. Like "Survive in the woods by myself for 3 days in the winter" or "Travel through the woods with another person for 7 days in the summer".

Then what's your budget? Target weight?

I like to use the survival rule of threes and start at the beginning

  • 3 minutes without air
  • 3 hours without shelter
  • 3 days without water
  • 3 weeks without food

    Then once you've bought your gear, test it. Maybe you have a broken item. Maybe it's hard to use without modification. Maybe you're just awful at starting fires.

    I'll give you one suggestion to start with: a compression bandage. Can't live that long without blood, can you?

Pedes make it a goal to add a first aid kit to your car or EDC bag. One with trauma wraps, tourniquet, blood clotting agent, gloves, etc. the reality is, we don't know where this is headed and it never hurts to be prepared.

Flashlight, water straw filter, iodine water tablets, small emergency blanket, road flare/air flare, hand warmers, knife, flint rod, etc. it will come in handy at some point.

u/Patrollingthemojave0 · 2 pointsr/EDC
u/RockyMtnAristocrat · 2 pointsr/wicked_edge


Some supplies I often recommend:




  • Norton 4K/8K
    For general honing, and a laborious restoration/bevel set (if you do more than a few razors, get the 1k below to set a bevel).

  • A jewelers loop to see what happens to the blade as you hone, polish, stop and shave. I feel watching the sharpness of a straight razor bevel develop and degrade is a critical education step in straight razor bevel maintenance.




  • Chromium Oxide on a strop for final polish, or a diamond pasted strop.


  • King 1000 K For bevel setting.




  • DMT flattening stone your hones don't ship flat, and must even them out - use sandpaper till you get this.


  • Niawa 12K
    For polishing your razor with a stone (some prefer this method).

  • Mineral oil to prevent rust (local pharm)

  • A bit of styptic in anticipation of your first shave

u/AFKeeker · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Bleeding out is a leading cause of death during severe trauma, yet it is one that can be mitigated to a great extent with some simple first aid gear and training. Having a First Aid Kit in your car is a great idea. Many things that the military uses in their Individual First Aid Kits (IFAK) can be purchased online. Amazon has CATs, Israeli Bandages, Quikclot, SAM Splints, Combat Lifesaver Guides (useful for situations where medical assistance might be delayed, like wilderness situations), and much much more.

u/17496634303659 · 2 pointsr/tacticalgear

Ok so first off, never ever use combat gauze or quick clotting sponges / powders in any situation unless the bleeding absolutely can't be controlled by a tourniquet. So, there are powdered quick clot applications, and the one that comes in a gauze form. The powdered version is extremely old, and was phased out of the military years ago. When it gets in contact with blood, it becomes excruciatingly hot and can actually burn you. Soldiers found that when downrange, if there are a decent breeze and they were trying to pour the powder in a wound, some would fly into their eyes or onto their sweat skin and start burning. Also, unlike the gauze, there is no way to force it into the wound and apply pressure onto the bleeding artery. The gauze form has a blue line down the center that actually shows up on x rays so doctors can remove all of the gauze. The chemical found in the powder has been put into the gauze.

That is what I assume you are speaking of when you say granuals. So with the gauze, you dont just take it out of the package and smack it on the wound. Let me find a video real quick on how to properly apply it.

Video on combat gauze!

Video shown to us medics when we first joined for training!

Hope that gives you a better idea.

If you were in a bad mountain bike crash and it left a big gash on your leg, I would use an ETB (Israeli Bandage) if it wasn't arterial bleeding (you look down at your leg and bright red blood is literally SQUIRTING out = arterial). You are just trying to keep the skin closed, apply pressure, and gtfo.

ETB on Amazon!

That is what we use in the military.

Any more questions feel free to ask.

u/_marco_polo_ · 2 pointsr/Hunting

I use a 30L Marmot, an 85L Osprey, or a regular school backpack sized Northface, and absolutely love them. It really depends on personal preference and what kind of hunt you are going on. If you do buy an internal frame pack, be sure to go to a store and try it on with some stuff in it. If you go to a major hunting/camping place, they will have staff to fit it for you. Do that and then buy online to save money.

I've used cheap walmart base layers for years until this year. Got an amazing set from a Cabela's bargain cave and decided that from now on I am going to get the expensive ones(unless I find another sale). The cheap ones will do it, but aren't nearly as comfortable or warm so I had to wear more layers. My fiancee swears up and down that her under armor set is better than the same set I bought from cabelas(she has both).

For a jacket(and maybe pack) do you need it to be camo? If no, for a jacket I suggest a Carhartt. If yes on camo, I love my Drake but it was super expensive. Maybe check out Macks Prairie Wings site?

As for anything else to make your hunt more fun, if you are done growing, I suggest splurging on a great pair of boots. Warm, dry, and comfy feet make me really happy. I also sometimes bring a little pocket rocket or a jetboil for warm food or drink but that really depends on the type of hunt. Stanley makes a great thermos for warm liquid up to 10-12 hours.

Also maybe think about a compact trauma kit. Accidents happen. I've got an Israeli bandage (get a bigger one that I linked. 6in isn't enough) coupled with a put together trauma kit. Blood clot packs, gauze, alcohol, thermo blanket, etc.

Hope reading this wall of text helped.

Israeli Compression Bandage

u/patrickeg · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

I carry the [Adventure Medical Kit: Day Tripper](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0033B4I9C?keywords=medical&qid=1457114890&ref_=sr_ph&Silk Road=1) which goes in the top pocket of my pack. I wanted something a bit more comprehensive than the .5, I've supplemented it with Celox and some extra Advil tabs and Moleskin. In addition I have two Israeli Bandages one of which I keep in the mesh pocket on the front of my pack and the other in a breakaway pack I carry on my hip sometimes, usually on longer hikes only.

Mine is similar, except I think I have their Mountain series Weekender kit. And I added an Israeli Bandage to mine, hopefully I never have reason to use it.

There's also these IDF bandages, they're vacuum packed with a built-in torniquet. https://www.amazon.com/Ever-Ready-First-Aid-Compression/dp/B003DPVERM

Quick-Clot bandages are actually real, and they're kind of awesome. You can't really buy them commercially at your local drug store yet, but they are used pretty commonly in ems and other professional medical environments.

I was able to find thee on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Ever-Ready-First-Aid-Compression/dp/B003DPVERM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1413572406&sr=8-2&keywords=quick-clot.

I carry a battle dressing in my back pack ever since I was bit by a dog. I got bit in the middle of nowhere and had to ride 10 miles to get back to my truck. Luckily I had some TP and a spare tube to cut the bleeding and keep it somewhat clean, but having this dressing would have helped a lot.

Edit: I now carry pepper spray on the outside of my back pack as well.

They're almost never recommended anymore. AFAIK the only time they have a use is if the limb is destroyed already, like stepped on a land mine or amputated by heavy machinery. Any kind of puncture or slice type thing you're likely to get outside short of being significantly eaten by a bear or shark is probably treatable with something else.

I have a few IBDs in my car stuff, but they're too bulky for backpacking. A clotting agent like this is pretty light weight, and they work amazingly well.

The other posts have covered the basics really well but I would add a compression bandage and watch this video to know how to use it.

Sting relief is what I have used the most - fucking hornets can kiss my ass

Similar setup as well... add in a combat application tourniquet, an Israeli bandage, and a chest seal gauze and you're set for most anything!
