As a Marine we were issued IFAKs that contained various items for immediate first aid on gunshot/shrapnel wounds. Now as a civi, I want to know what you all think would be valuable first aid items in a general survival situation. I still have my CAT tourniquet and everyone except my Paramedic buddy thinks I'm crazy for keeping it in my truck. I don't need my kit to be as compact as the IFAK, but space is of course always an issue with survival prepping. What do you guys think are basic and necessary items? PS, if you guys wasted your money on quik-clot or any chemical cauterizing agent, get rid of it. Everyone in my infantry unit "lost" ours (the bushmonster ate it). Some untrained idiot will likely use it wrong and make your wounds worse (it also hurts like a motherfunner when applied). NEVER use that crap on your chest or face! Thanks for any ideas you share.
