    TQ, rolled trauma dressing, z-fold gauze, hemostatic gauze, shears, bandaids/bandages of various sizes, nitrile gloves, chest seal, flashlight, sharpie, tampons, cpr face shield, disinfectant wipes, meds (advil, tylenol, immodium, clairitin, burn cream, antacid). Other stuff that's nice to stuff in there: bug spray, sunscreen, handwarmers.

    Probably the easiest way to build one out is to start with a basic IFAK (covers most of the big stuff) then pack it out with extras, booboo repair and meds as needed.

    Ready-to-roll mini med packs (if it saves any hassle) available here: https://mymedic.com/collections/medication-mod/products/mini-medication-mod

    There is a lot to unpack here.

    What first aid training do you have? Simply having a decked out first aid kit doesn't mean that you will be able to use said first aid kit in the seconds that actually count.

    Do you intend on carrying the kit on your person for your EDC? If so, where?

    It's also important to bucket out what the kit needs to do. A boo-boo kit is going to get used a lot more than a trauma kit with TQs/dressings/gauze/etc.

    Check out My Medic. They have a pretty good selection of kits from basic stuff to trauma kits. Some get pretty expensive but you can get an idea of items if you intend to build your own kit.

    I've got a few of these stashed in important places, including in my car within reach of the drivers seat:

    Keep in mind, the above DARK Kit is for trauma care only. If you want a bit more boo-boo with it, here is another kit (that I don't have):

    Focus on hemorrhage control for medical in regard to combat kit. At LEAST two TQ’s (CAT G7 or SOFT-W), gauze, gauze, and, more gauze. SAM splints, chest seals, shears, sharpie, etc.

    Stay away from ND’s. Very few people are competent enough to properly use one, and more often than not, it’s “professionals” that screw it up.

    Dont forget super glue :)
    I cant tell you the times I have fixed my fingers/hands on the range, and students, with the usual cuts and scrapes with it. I know ur gonna say wrap it in duct tape, lol...

    Also, for the above questions, watching a video is not a substitute for hands on. Learning to pack a wound with a hands on simulation device is really needed. Thinking a tampon will fill a space, or one roll of guaze is not always correct. You can pack some of them like there is no end to it. Then understanding extremities versus pleural space and above/below diaphragm, and issues with air is really important.

    I have fixed quite a number of guns that the YouTube experts have made incorrect videos about, and then an actual armorer has had to resolve. Find a local TCCC class, its totally worth your time. Also, VET THE FUKING INSTRUCTOR !....Having tattoos, a long beard, and 15,000 followers isnt an indicator of competence. Prior certified training is.

    Tampons and wound bleeding control shouldn't go in the same sentence. Or paragraph.

    Once upon a time I tore my finger open and fixed it up with superglue. Worked great for closing the wound.

    However, this self-surgery was done at 3am blackout drunk, and I didn't think to wash my hands or sterilize the gash first, so the glue sealed in jagermeister, pizza grease and whatever other cooties I had on there. I also didn't so much "close" the wound as "fill" the wound. Still have a scar on my hand from the infection, almost 20 years later LOL
