    I'm still trying to figure out what I would like to put into a ghb, I'm a lil slow...
    Glad you liked the video, I'll absolutely put some links up to all of the stuff I mentioned tomorrow at some point.

    Here's a list of what was mentioned in the video in order of appearance:

    Phlster PEW (Pocket Emergency Wallet)
    Contents:
    H&H Mini Compression Bandage
    H&H Compressed Gauze
    Woundclot Hemostatic Gauze
    Gloves

    Phlster Flatpack
    Contents:
    Tac Med Solutions SOFFT-W TQ

    Tac Med Solutions Ankle TQ Wrap
    Contents:
    Tac Med Solutions SOFFT-W TQ

    Tuff Products Ankle Medical Wrap
    Contents:
    Benchmade Rescue Hook
    Celox Rapid Ribbon
    Gloves
    Beacon Chest Seal
    Streamlight Microstream

    Also, just a note: If you're going to buy a tourniquet I highly recommend NOT buying those items on Amazon as it is awash in fake Chinese knock off tourniquets and off-brand copies of the two most popular and scientifically backed tourniquets: the North American Rescue CAT TQ, and Tac Med Solutions SOFFT-W. I would buy those direct from the manufacturer.

    In light of yesterday's school shooting, here's a great presentation on the basics of bleeding control.

    CAUTION: there are a few "graphic" pics if you find that sort of stuff disturbing to view. However, I'd urge you to push past that as it is excellent information.

    As far as training resources go, I highly recommend Lone Star Medics if you live in Texas.

    You can also find free bleeding control basic classes here: https://cms.bleedingcontrol.org/Class/Search

    Go forth and conquer.

    I have a med kit in each vehicle... I don't carry anything medical related on my person. The only time I do is when I am in the woods or other remote locations

    I carry an Israeli Bandage (4 w/2nd pad) with a pair of gloves in a tiny ziploc bag taped to it using about 12-18 of medical tape. The bandage can be opened without removing the tape or the tape could be used for the 2nd pad or with the bandage plastic as a chest seal. I also carry a couple basic first aid items in a small ziploc (@4x2).

    My vehicle has a more extensive IFAK, but the Israeli is small and light enough that I actually carry it.

    Another option that I considered and is about the size as a deck of cards and similar to the phlster pocket emergency wallet is the OSS Pocket Pack

    That OSS kit looks like a good option that's easy to carry. Medical EDC is like the gun, if this stuff is cumbersome to keep on your person you're not going to do it. I've found and tried to share carry solutions that work for me and hopefully inspired others to give it a try.

    The need to be portable is what led to the OSS pocket packs. They wanted something LEOs would carry on person vice leaving in the car. There are a couple different kits which are vacuum sealed in heavy plastic (skip packs).

    Here is a picture of my Israli bandage with gloves (left) compared to a dollar. On the right is another very minimal option, the woundstop home care Israeli bandage which is a 4x7 pad attached to 5yds elastic and closure bar..

    Very nice. I like those Woundstop bandages, I keep one in another small kit I have, nice footprint for a pressure bandage.

    I carry a medical bag in my backseat, however ... it's in the backseat. Medical gear for you is only as good as it is accessible! The Phlster Flatpack which holds a Tac Med Solutions SOFFT-W tourniquet attaches nicely to the seatbelt and stows away well with little UV exposure as that could be a concern over time. Pretty happy with this addition to my vehicle medical setup.

    Here are two picture of the OSS Pocket Patrol Pack and an Israeli (with outer plastic removed) compared to a deck of cards.

    I probably should carry something better than the first aid kit in the back of my car but I rarely go shooting outside of supervised gun ranges. So, I don't worry too much about this. If I got shot in the middle of nowhere my chances of survival would be next to zero anyway. I don't hunt either.

    Why would you think that? Shot in an extremity [ arm/leg ] being able to deal with it is fairly straightforward with the right equipment AND knowledge of medical care. Shot in the torso, you may still be able to self assess and partially stem the onset of shock, blood loss, sucking chest wound, arterial bleeders etc with some knowledge and equipment at hand.

    Knowledge first, equipment second, but having both could reduce the chances of being found deceased in the middle of nowhere having just laid down and given up.

    Confirming what most of us already know: Civilian Prehospital Tourniquet Use Is Associated with Improved Survival in Patients with Peripheral Vascular Injury: https://www.journalacs.org/article/S...101-7/abstract

    The TL;DR is: Although still underused, civilian prehospital tourniquet application was independently associated with a 6-fold mortality reduction in patients with peripheral vascular injuries.

    What are you carrying?
