    Free stuff. My sister in law works at the local hospital. All kinds of free stuff but You can get carried away, and not have room to put everything.

    Does it burn when applied? I'd hate to do this to my kids if they suffered a serious cut.

    Can anyone else verify this? I am not trying to offend Swampfox in any way, I'm just looking to corroborate this. I've never heard of it before.

    I made a video of my medical inventory. I'll post the link when I upload it. I have 3 main medic bags and assorted goodies I keep around.

    1.) Gas mask bag filled with goodies (primary field bag);
    5 tampons
    6 pressure bandages
    8 gauze rolls
    2 triangular bandages
    6 ammonia inhalants
    bottle of asprin
    1 oral airway
    5 iodine wipes

    2.) Secondary field bag
    *same stuff as above in slightly different quantities*

    3.) STOMP portable hospital
    I would list it, but I'll post the link to my video once it's uploaded...it has ALOT of stuff in it. All I am missing is an IV set, decompression kit, and some opium derivatives for pain. Other than that, I have it all.

    I saw someone listed some Saline IV bags on Ebay a while back. I think they were for vet use, but they work. You can get all the rest of the stuff like the catheters and regulators though.

    I know salt clots blood up fast, but it hurts like hell.

    I bought 2 of the Quick Clot Sport sponges that contain silver as an anti bacterial agent. They are a little pricey but potential life savers are worth the money.
