As a retired PH I always carried a trauma kit in the field, which was generally 90 days straight. In 2021 (after my neighbor got mauled to death and eaten in our backyard) I set about building a serious trauma kit. I lucked out and received a lot of badly needed help.I mean not just basic medical,for those of you a ways off from a hospital, do you carry or keep a trauma kit nearby?
Do you know how and when to use it?
It ended up quite huge, I had to cull it into two "Step" kits. First step for serious wilderness trauma (hopefully to allow crawling to the plane or truck. Then a second step-up kit to enhance probability of making it 110 miles to hospital by road, or 300 miles by aircraft.
