Basics of Individual First Aid Kits and Boo-Boo Kits

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve worked in the medical field. Putting together a good trauma kit is in my opinion best left to those medics still scrubbing blood from their cuticles. Blue Force Gear tapped some great talent in choosing precisely the equipment needed to stabilize a variety of battlefield injuries until bigger and better people and equipment arrive. The list is as follows:

  • QuickClot Combat Gauze
  • HyFin Vent Chest Seal (2 seals included)
  • Medical Trauma Bandage 4” Flat Pack
  • Decompression needle
  • Six 2” x9” Frog Tape
  • Size 28 Nasopharyngeal Airway
  • Heavy Duty Medical Gloves in tan (1 pair)
