More on The Best medical Kit I Have Seen

I received a call from Medcallassist the manufactures of the Medical Kit I recommended and wrote about the other day. The post is at http://bit.ly/RiCqbu.  Apparently, they have received some inquiries from our readers and want to offer a 10% discount to anyone who calls them in the next seven days.  The discount code would be “preparedness advice”.  There website is http://www.medcallassist.com/

Be sure and check that purchasing and processing this kit does not violate your local and state laws

    Among our CERT classes, a frequent question is suturing for wound closure. My hunting buddy, who I will call “ER Doc” is a board- certified surgeon who is occasionally called upon to do emergency field surgery, (amputations) to free and stabilize accident victims for air evac. He and his wife (also a surgeon) spent weeks in Haigi post earthquake, and spend their vacations on medical missions in places ou would not want to go. Suffice to say, I am a former patient. They have instructed me n basics beyond my military training, which would be considered “dated.”

    There are few wounds which cannot be closed with tincture of benzoin, so the adhesive sticks, and butterflies. You want the wound to be able to drain. Irrigate with sterile saline frequently, and bandage loosely pending transport. A dermal stapler is easier for the layman to use than trying to suture. The Army has lots of good info, sek out the ckmbat lifesaver course if you want to learn more. TheQuik-clot ACS or “Combat Sponge” is great IF you have been trained to use it.
