*Field Medical Bag*
By Red Dog

Here are the contents of a Field Medics Bag I put together. The bag was $10.00 at an Army Surplus store and measures around 12x8x6. The Bag has a shoulder strap and another one that would secure it around your waist.

I filled it with these items. Don't ask how much the other stuff costs, I put it together from what I had already.

This really stuffs this small bag. Careful packing must be done to fit it all in and fasten the latches. Having these supplies will take care of most field injuries.

I would like to add a stethoscope and blood pressure cuff, but there isn't room for them. I can stuff them in an M-16 Ammo pouch along with IV Fluids and set-ups as listed in the ADVANCED MEDICAL SECTION.

I also carry a Field Surgical Instrument set with some Suture and Sterile Scalpel Blades.
