Items for First Aid
« on: Jan 07, 2022, 12:33 PM »
What do you keep in your first aid kit on the ice besides sutures, bandaides and tissues to wipe away the tears when the trophy breaks your line.
I keep an extra set of needles and thread in case I need to sew up my hand like I had to do in 07'. Damn musky got me. And the bourbon.
If you can't stand the heat, get your bass out of the kitchen.

Hemostats (hanging off the tackle box too) alcohol wipes, scissors, narrow and wide gauze roll, eye drops,
padded tongue depressor, ace bandage, syringes, small bottle of hydrogen peroxide, tweezers, vaseline, hard candy. (for a diabetic )

Musky munched my buddy's thumb ball. Right thru the muscle, had to have surgery. Unreal.

I keep a generic $20 kit in my pickup but have created my own first aid kit for my dog. Gauze doesn't work well on fur lol.

When I got rid of my Xterra ..I cut the bag out ..thats my kit ..added some liquid bandage and other odds and ends ..finger bandages comes to mind... one time bunggeing down some stuff and wap bungee slammed my thumb ..oh the pain as well as the unstopable profuse bleeding ..duct tape and limited movement was the only option .

Most important thing is toilet paper amd at least an 8 inch auger. 6 inch or smaller makes it hard to aim into the hole. Lol.

I always keep a tin of zippo fluid and a spare set of clothes. I got soaked once and nearly froze. Lucky for me I wasn't alone. I got so cold my brain stopped working, and it's not the best when it does work. But I remember going from panic mode trying to get back to the house to just thinking I'll curl up in a ball till I warm up. Lucky my friend knew I was not thinking right and basically dragged me under a bridge. Used his sweater to start a fire and get drift wood and sticks from the bank to warm me up. As soon as I got warm enough to think again I could hear the sirens. Somebody called the cops because all the smoke coming out from under the bridge. I think I would have died had I been alone. So fire is my most important thing I bring everywhere. I would never stich anybody in an emergency situation. Takes too much time to thread a needle and stitched you up. I've got a staple gun I ordered off a veterinary website. Pinch the skin and staple it. So much faster and easier than trying to hold still and slowly sew somebody in pain. By the time you hear the click and feel the pain the staple is in. You can flinch, scream, or jump around all you want between staples and if I had to do it to myself it wouldn't be anywhere near as impossible as traditional stitches. I could put in a few staples and add some liquid skin faster than I could thread a needle. It's almost impossible for me to even tie on a jig with the old eyes sometimes. Emergency situation in the wind and snow with a spike of adrenaline and you'd bleed to death before I ever got to stitching you. Buy the staple gun for like $20.

Gotta have a proper first aid kit tailored toward the activity you're doing, might save your day or might save your life or someone else's. If you've ever had, or seen, a cut from auger blades you know how nasty that can be. Absolute must haves:

- Rubber gloves
- Gauze
- Medical tape - fabric, never the cheap paper kind
- QuickClot powder and/ or bandages.
- Butterfly closures
- Pain/ headache reliever
- Mylar emergency blanket
- Ace bandage with extra clips
- BZK disinfectant wipes
- Antibiotic first aid cream, bonus points if it's got a pain killer in it
- Typical bandaids and the like

All that takes up less space than a sunglass case.

band aids, tape, gloves, tylenol, advil, crazy glue.

I am on two different blood thinners. After recently having an arterial bleed, without immediate intervention I would not be here.

I had a tourniquet in my truck but now had added a tourniquet to my smaller first aid kit. Also added hemostatic gauze and pressure dressing to both.

Good idea to have a tourniquet in every kit, Bart. A bandanna and a pencil will work well, also remember your belt....or boot laces and a stick.
