    After 32 years SAR training....2 items....condoms (non-lubricated if possible) Uses: protecting wounds on hands, feet, toes & digits, great ties / tourniquets, and last ( definitely not used ones ) put one inside a sock to get water from a stream.....they reallllllyyy stretch!
    Item 2: Tampons, small, light, low volume BUT brilliant for stopping/staunching blood from open wounds...

    See someone else has discovered the uses of condoms! Tampons are a good point, have had them in kits in the past

    CAT tourniquet, Israeli Bandage, Chest seal, celox and some wound packer. Yet to get a PLB but will do. Takes up very little room and can deal with most trauma until serious help arrives.

    Never used it in a real life situation so don't know. Used the Israeli Bandages with it infused and it worked really well, would never stop a serious arterial bleed though.

    Where is the best place to get hold of some celox? Would be good to have a few sachets in my kit.
    Hunting is not a hobby.....its an addiction

    Trademe has them, you can get it in an syringe type applicator which would be far better for getting it down into a wound I think, epecially if self applicating.

    If you're going to carry a CAT then make sure you practice with it and get familiar with it including one handed application, if you never practice then when you need it you'll be dead by the time you get it on. I didn't realise how much I was lacking until I was put through some high pressure scenario.

    A gauze impregnated with a hemostatic agent, such as QuikClot Combat Guage, is much easier to apply then a powder or granule.

    Be cautious about buying both CATs and hemostatic agents online as there are several companies making counterfeit products.

    Can you suggest a reliable source for such gauze? Have an Israeli bandage that's been vacuum packed and bloody expensive but only the one

    Check out their blog too. They have some first class contributers, including Dan Pronk, a former AUS SOF Doctor with multiple combat deployments.

    If there's lots of blood coming out use the bandage, take the pills and use PLB. Anything else a combination of electrical tape and pills should be ok until I can walk out, if for any reason I can't walk out then use PLB. Job done.

    It might look a bit heavy at first, but it's actually self-propelled. Can be a bit of a pain in tight bush, though.

    Right time to raid the wife's hand back as she has loads of those Compeed things....just better not get caught

    On a more serious note I whatched a mate of mine use his eppy pen he's allergic to deer hair and had a bad reaction while gutting one. Got the bloody thing round the wrong way and injected it into his hand instead still worked thank god! Laughed about it after, but not very funny to start with.

    Sanitary pads are also good for stopping larger cuts. Used these a bit with duck tape to hold them in place. African roads you come across a lot of TA's, they hold back a good deal of blood and the duck tape helps with the pressure that you need to aplie, especially if you need to help multiple victims.
    Wasn't around for when the duck tape was pulled off. But meet up with a few that are still running around
