    Here is an Item that I regularly carry in my SAR/Cave rescue pack and is used on the ambulance service I work for. Its called Bloodstopper and is a pressure bandage with two wraps, one can be used and one wrap can be left in place to increase pressure on the injury. I have a pic but cannot post it at this time. Here is a site with it:

    no doubt the pad works, but between that and vaseline gauze and a 5x9 if the option is availible.

    10-ring and moondoggie, I'm not sure I know exactly which feminine hygiene products you're talking about, but I heard that tampons are designed to prevent clotting, which would be the opposite of the desired effect in a first aid scenario.

    The basic, old-fashioned, no-frills feminine pads (like the Maxi-Pad,) do make a good expedient "battle dressing." These were shipped to Nicaragua a few years back, to supply the the rebels fighting Sandinista government.

    They are a viable alternative to the "real deal," when cost is a factor, such as needing to quick supply a small army. But if we're talking about an individual kit, the good stuff isn't that expensive.
