1 heimlich chest drain valve
4 field dressings w/ wrap
2 abdominal dressings
6 ace bandages
10 intersorb stretch gauze packets (can be stuffed whole into a wound and wrapped with ace bandage for a compression bandage)
6 – 10 cc syringes
4 eye pads
20 4×4 sterile pads/ cover sponges
8 angiocath (16 guage/ 2 inch)

2 -1000ml lactated ringers IV solution

I also keep two combat lifesaver bags with lesser amounts of the above listed items in my vehicles.
If you decide to follow this example, make sure you keep your supplies up to date. If you do have IV fluid or other items that are out of date and an emergency arises….USE THEM. It is easier to administer antibiotics to someone who is alive but suffering from infection than to try it on someone who died bleeding out without the administration of blood expander.
Always get proper training!
Oh yeah, I have some apsirin and motrin 800s too, for those light days….LOL.
