    Thumbs up BOK/VOK/FAK contents,advice and deals

    I figure this could be a good place to get a running thread on blow out kits, med bags,home FAKS, etc.
    Be it advice from those in the know on what products to look for,what to have , where to purchase and for people to show off their kits if they wish for advice/help from those that have/are in the medical fields.
    mod you can stick,lock,edit,delete etc as you wish. Just trying to get some stuff rolling in here.

    Here is a older blog entry on building a basic "ifak" BOK for your shooting gear.



    building your own BOK- by delta69alpha


    Building your own BOK is very easy and doing so enables you to save money for other preps.
    There are many types of "pre" made kits available on the web. Some are very affordable and others not so. The kits i have built on my own are tailored to my first aid skill level and to the kit that they are placed in. As with most BOK/VOK/IFAKs most of what you will put in your kit is to be used on you aka "buddy aide" so keep that in mind when building your blow out kit.

    The best deal for pre made kits that i have seen as of late is the "Ifak" kit offered by JRH for under 40$ . Compared to others across the web their prices can not be beat on a pre ***embled kit with similar contents. JRH's prices on izzy dressings is also very competitive as well at under 8$ ! When building your kit purchasing from a well known ,trusted company is key!
    http://www.jrhenterprises.com/main.sc

    The basic B.O.K/VOK consist of a compression bandage, 2-4 pairs of sterile latex gloves,medical tape,shears and a roll of gauze. Of course there are many other items that can be placed in these kits. But the basic kit that you can build on your own may at best may run you 10-15$. A step up from a basic kit is to involve parts of the standard issue IFAK or other kits that you can find online ,such as the one linked above from JRH.
    These items would be a one handed tourniquet or C.A.T/SOF style, a compression dressing like the Israeli dressing that's available all over the web for 4-8$ ,a 4 yard roll of rolled gauze , medical tape, 14g IV cath,NPA airway, and EMT shears. Other items that can be added if your budget allows are petro jelly, asherman chest seals,duct tape,extra combat dressings and 4x4 dressings, clamps and extra shears, compressed gauze vs rolled guaze etc. Of course this all needs to be put into some sort of pouch. That my friends is a 20 page debate in of it's self as everyone has a favorite gear maker or style of pouch that they prefer to use.

    Personally I have a small BOK on my person ( shears,compression dressing,CAT,gloves) and carry a slightly larger kit on my belt or pack. This kit contains everything that i would need for an emergency while on the range!

    The amount of items you can put in your kit is endless, but make sure that you are trained to use the items in your kit. Like any other prep you must know your gear and hopefully you may never have to use its contents !

    Good post Protus. I use a BOK that has my "emergency" supplies to stop major bleeding or airway issues. This allows only that type of supplies in this kit. The IFAK has additional supplies for futher treatment if needed and also has supplies for less serious injuries/issues such as splints, bandaids, meds, etc.
    Each one of us probably has their IFAK/BOK set-up differently just like our other gear. The real key is knowing when and how to use your medical supplies.

    Protus, we can have another discussion on NPA's vs OPA's some other time as they both have their pro's and con's.

    yeah just trying to get some med talk going, as "what to put in my kit" threads seem to plauge the other places i hang out at.
    Im sure with your back ground etc, those that read any threads here will walk away with a better outlook on what they need in their kits.
    My truck kit is basically a huge IFAK with a bunch of "ouchy mommy" style stuff in it ;p lol
    As to the opa/npa i carry both . but they are more for "buddy aide" ( i carry what my skill level is at with a few extras to be used by those in the know if need be.)

    other specialty health items

    I did not indicate quantities for the most part. Decide how much space you wish to use and fill the kits based on that. Remember, though, that having one of everything is not necessarily the best way to go. Better to have several of an item you know you will use often than one of something that you may or may not use. Tough decision. You arent a hospital. You cant have everything. (They can't either, actually.)

    These kits were designed some time ago and some of the original brand names deleted in this version. Others were left in as a reference that can be asked about at a friendly pharmacy. The kits should be discussed with your doctor and needed adjustments made.

    REMEMBER: THESE KITS ARE MY PERSONAL OPINION. CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE SETTING UP YOUR OWN KIT.

    Wow! Quite a list(s) there Jerry. Thanks for the comprehensive list. I think the extensive list is more complete than many walk in clinics.

    As with anything...knowledge is key. If you can recognize what needs to be done, than you sometimes can improvise if you don't have the appropriate gear/supplies. If you don't know what needs to be done, all the equipment in the world will do you no good.
