Adventure Medical Suture Syringe Kits

I like the medical kits from Adventure Medical; they contain excellent high quality supplies.  Whenever I get the opportunity, I add to my collection.  I have purchased their kits, found them in garage sales and have been given them. Recently I came across one of their Suture/Syringe kits.  The listed sales price is $80, but you can find them on the internet for less.

Adventure Medical makes a small and a large kit containing sutures.  The one I am talking about today is the large kit.  This field surgical kit contains hospital-quality field surgical instruments for closing wounds, injecting medication and starting I.V.’s.  This kit is designed for Third World travel or where sterile components are not always available

As you can see from the supply list this is a very useful selection of hard to find items.  To make this kit meet its full potential you need to have experienced well-trained medical personnel available.  But under some circumstances, I think they will be more available than sterile supplies.  One of these kits or its equivalent would be a good addition to your supplies

    I like the hit, I already have my own but this one is interesting and looks ok. The thing that struck me was the travel comment. There are states you can’t take this in and I can’t even imagine some countries so be careful with the laws.
