    Thanks Clearconscience, there's a lot on that list that I hadn't thought of.

    Good list, thx.

    I would add IV bags (lactate) and IV starters.

    It may be there, I also may have over-looked a blood sugar test kit.

    I will get a cervical collar and a stethoscope asap.

    I don't have any Ricter's fluid and as far as blood sugar goes my EM training was to give both high and low BS patients hard candy to suck on, if they are conscious. My job was to stabilize the patient call in the PERL (data) and transport to ER. I found that many, many doctors have no clue about treatment in the field. Hopefully that has changed since 9-11. The tricky bit in the field is pain management which is critical to stabilization and recovery. Liquid aspirin anyone?
    PS was duct tape mentioned?:oops:

    Be sure you know how to use the stuff you add to your kit.

    No way gotta know how!
    I'm going to pay a homeless to let me practice a tracheotomy this weekend!
    Then off the to college to do mamograms and obgyn check ups.
    Never too prepared.
