    Something like Quick-Clot should be something everyone should carry with them everywhere they go at all times in their pocket.

    gauze pads, 4×4. Take them out of the packaging and package them in a zip-loc bag. That keeps it really compact. Also a small roller gauze and some tape. Also a Triangular Bandage. hope this helps

  12. Dont use Provodine Iodine to clean a wound you intend to super glue. Though it is absolutely the best thing you can use to dissenfect a wound it leaves an oily residue and the super glue does not stick to it very well. Like I said I use a 50/50 mix of Alcohol and peroxide (recomended by a Dr. AND a paramedic friend of mine)and I flush the wound out about 7-10 times. before glueing to make sure is completely dissenfected. I have never had an infection yet.

  13. Ive never heard of it. I know Derma Bond or Skin Glue are like $65.00 a tube. THe same size tube of super glue is al little as .99cents. I prefer better types like “super” or “crazy” glue but they work just fine and anyone can afford them. I have personally done about sixteen wide open gashes on fighters heads, eyes and cheeks, Perfect record with very little scarring. Very important though. Remember to flush the wound over and over again. I use a 50/50 alcohol peroxide mix.

  14. here is my first aid kit:10 mini bandaids, 3-2×2 gauze pads, a lot of bandaids maybe 20-30, 4 motrin tablets, 4 diphen tablets, 2 after-bite relief pads, 2 bzk towellets, 3 after cuts treatment pads, 1 sting relief pad, 6 antibiotic oitment packs, and 4 neo-to-go. so if i need anything else plz reply asap, and how can i keep it compact

  15. good video i would suggest some sutures or stiches especially in a backpacking scenario where your no where near medical help you will need to be able to close the wound and then hike out alot of times and most bandages wont hold. d33 lux had a good point though ive used super glue on cuts a number of times and it works good. you can go to medical supply websites and buy surgical superglue that wont damage tissue

  16. “Superglue is made of a substance called cyanoacrylate. When it comes into contact with liquids like water, it forms a plastic mesh that will keep skin, or anything one wants glued, neatly bonded together. However, regular superglue has methyl alcohol, which creates heat in order to produce the bonding effect of superglue. Thus using superglue to close a wound in deep tissue could result in killing some of the surrounding skin cells”. You can buy a safe alternative called “Liquid bandage”

    the moleskin should be applied before the blister develops, I think it’s called a hotspot.

    a blister is a wound than can get infected…

  18. You do need a prescription. Most Docs will write you one without any issues.
    Liquid Benedryl is cheaper and very effective.

  19. Is it possible to purchase Epi-pens? I was under the impression that they were by prescription only.

  20. Excellent kit.
    I have only one suggestion based on personal experience…
    Add benadryl and/or an EpiPen for severe allergic reactions… anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions) can be fatal in a matter of minutes!
    I found out (the hard way) that despite having no allergy to bees or yellow jackets… I am somewhat allergic to the more aggressive bald-faced hornets. I was very lucky that the person I was with carried benadryl religiously.

    “Almost no Rattlers left”

    Why is that?

    Kind of sad really. Please explain. Thanks.

    P.S. I had to pause for a moment and frown on the other viewers comments re: “Eye bandages”. That part of this video was obviously meant for being in a sole survival situation, right?

    Anyway, keep up the good work. I am learning so much here mate! Thanks.

    with the medication part, its good to handle them with tweezers, taking them out of the medication bottle and placing them in the first aid emergence medication bottle or whatever you use, cause touching medication and keeping them stored can greatly lower their shelf life and damage or weaken the medication

    Oh my god thank you, you are one of the few people who mention that iodine can be poisonous, -_- sorry I just rarely hear people mention that use of common sense is important.
