Emergency Survival Medical Pouch / Bug Out Bag First Aid Kit

Alright guys, today we’re going to talk about my bug out bag first aid kit if you watch my bug out bag video this is the
pouch that I had strapped to the outside of my backpack. If you haven’t
seen that video go check it out, it has a full rundown of everything and the bug
out bag. First, I wanna talk to you about the pouch that have this in. This is the
Condor Lite Rip Away Medical Pouch, this is the same pouch that I use for my fire kit on my bug out bag and the way this works is, it has a Molle panel on the back so you can
strap it to a backpack or a plate carrier or anything else. It has a strap that
secures the main pouch to that back panel and when you undo this strap, if you
need quick access to this pouch out then all you do is grab it and rip it away from
that velcro panel. That way you can have it secured to your backpack but when you
really need it you can just rip it off and take the medical pouch with you, that
way you don’t have to go digging into your backpack or take your whole backpack with you to help somebody out an emergency. Now, looking at the outside of the pouch is has a Velcro panel on the front that you can put a patch on. You can see I have first aid cross on the front. It also has MOLLE webbing on the front and a hook Velcro panel on the back to attach to the loop Velcro panel that you mount on your backpack. I did replace the zipper
pulls with bright red paracord just so when somebody looks in this pack they have no doubt that this is my first aid pack. That way if I’m the one that’s injured
in someone else needs to get to it, they know exactly which one which one to go to. It also wrapped handle in paracord, red and black mainly like I said to let it be known
that this is a first aid kit, but also to give you a little extra cordage if you
need it. Getting into the inside of the pouch, basically what I did was, the base of my kit is an adventure medical kits 2 person first aid kit and then I just
added some extra stuff to it. So on both sides they have these elastic loops to help keep everything secure inside the pouch and I’ll just go ahead and start on this side. The first thing I have in here is a small light, that way if I need to put a little extra light on the
situation or clip this to my hat and use this as a head lamp while I’m giving
first aid to somebody, I have that option. I also have a small back up knife in here for cutting bandages or anything else you may need a knife for while you’re giving first aid to
some body. Over here I just have a small set of tweezers, those will be good for pulling
off tics or pulling out splinters anything like that. The pouch also has these loops on both
sides at the top and what I did was put a paracord lanyard attached to that with
an emergency whistle that way if I need some assistance while I’m helping
somebody out, I can just blow on this. That will alert somebody to know that we need help. I just have some basic medical shears for cutting bandages, a few sets of blue nitrile gloves. If you are handling somebody that’s bleeding you definitely want to protect yourself. I have a small pack of safety pins for securing bandages and a small backup compass. I also have a bunch of assorted kinds of band-aids and adhesive bandages. A few larger adhesive bandages, a whole bunch of antiseptic towelettes for cleaning up a wound or cleaning your hands. And there’s a back
pocket in here and in there, I just have a bunch of generic medications, Ibuprofen, anti-diarrheal, asprin, burn cream, all
kinds of things like that and there is some instructions in here so let me know
what type of medication to use in a certain situation. And last but not least
in that pouch I have a tampon. Those of you that know much about first aid kits
that’s definitely a good item have. Obviously this is intended to stop
bleeding and you can even put a bullet hole with this will come in handy lot.
Now moving on to the other side, I have a small vial of liquid bandage some mole skin, some medical tape, I have an elastic bandage. A few small packs of Celox, if you not familiar with Celox, it works the same way as quick clot. this is the granular inversion like the
military uses for stopping rapid blood loss. A small pack of cue tips, I have a bleeding and CPR guide. A wound care,
burn and blister guide. I have a bunch of different sizes of sterile sponges or
gauze. And last but not least on this side, a cold compress, you just crushed this and shake it you can use this to help reduce swelling. Next thing I do creep along
with my first a kit and I think is essential, is a tourniquet, now this is just a tourniquet pouch that I got off ebay for 10 bucks, but it’s pretty nice, it
has this velcro panel on the front for a medical patch and this red pull tab, and that holds one standard size Cat tourniquet. I also keep instructions for applying the tourniquet just in case somebody else has to use this on me. I think a tourniquet is essential for a good
medical kit, especially in a bug out bag because in a bug out bag you don’t know
what kind of situations you may be in and if you have to stop blood loss from a
bullet wound or severe cut or something like that A good tourniquet could save someone’s life. As many of you already know a good medical kit very important for any bug out bag and
they’re good at keeping your vehicle keeping your travel bags or in your range
bag. You never know when an emergency might happen and you need give first aid to somebody else or to
yourself and even though a lot of this stuff is really basic you could potentially
save someone’s life even if all you have is a kit just like this right here. So
