What’s in my… large medical kit
In addition to my basic medical kit I’ve got a bigger medical bag which I carry with me during risky situations like rally’s and extensive road trips. This kit is build around the Tasmanian Tiger Medic Assault Bag and focused on the MARCH protocol for civilians.
This kit provides in stabilizing patients with critical bleedings, loss in consciousness with all kind of reasons and little boo-boo’s.
Based on the MARCH protocol. For Massive bleeding the left part contains two sets of 1x Nitrile gloves, 1x C.A.T. Tourniquet, 1x NAR Emergency Trauma Dressing, 1x H&H Compressed Gauze. For Airway and Respirations I carry a Ambu Rescue mask, H&H H*Vent chest seals and the knowledge of a recovery position and chin lift.
For Circulation, like minor bleedings, I carry 2x rolls of gauze, gauze pads, tape, HiBicet and Betadine. But also boo-boo stuff like adhesive strips and plasters. To complete the MARCH protocol, for the Head & Hypothermia, I carry rescue blankets, Paracetamol (because I can’t legally carry stronger pain medications), Loperamide and O.R.S.
To complete it all, I also carry tweezers, a tick removal pen, a pencil for the tourniquet, and other writing. In the front of the pack, I carry a Piranha Trauma shears, SAM splint, and for the current situation a mouth nose mask.
This Tasmanian Tiger Medic Assault Bag can be fixed on a plate carrier, or worn as a regular backpack. But with the provided straps and an extra Tasmanian Tiger strap I’ve attached it to my Tasmanian Tiger Mission Pack MKII backpack.
