wider is better

This entry was posted in First Aid, Medical Gear and tagged , on by . Comments Closed
Remember those silly commercials? If not, oh well. Wider cars, wider tires, wider who knows what else. I’m sure you could start a debate about any of that stuff. In the world of tourniquets, one of the top suppliers decided they agree with the sentiment. I’ll go ahead and pimp a previous blog post which...

EMT Lite

Not here to talk about an EMT on a diet but a popular pouch we’ve pontificated about in the past has been released in a more streamlined version. Some might call it more practical but it simply depends on your individual needs. The bigger brother is the Condor MA41 Rip-Away EMT Pouch and was discussed...

QuikClot quick stop

After a brief hiatus from my day job (a faux vacation) it’s back to the grind this morning. As such, this will be one of my crank it out before heading out posts. Not every post should be a novel anyway, because ain’t nobody got time fo dat. How about some quick, QuikClot talk? It’s...

elite discounts

So our 12 Days of Xmas promotion is in full swing as we’ve hit day nine. I haven’t posted each daily deal here because that would be too easy. I gave the heads up here on the second day and I chose to post about the day nine deal because it’s truly elite. Yesterday I...

BSI on hand

This entry was posted in Medical Gear, Promotions and tagged on by . Comments Closed
Having been certified as an EMT and having worked as one for a little while, there’s a couple things you remember that are drilled into your brain – scene safety and body substance isolation (BSI). Even when there’s no blood or other bodily fluid in sight some patients just have you scrambling for a pair...

hit em with a hook

In a recent post about the Benchmade SOCP Dagger I mentioned picking up one of their rescue hooks. Still no dagger for me though. I acquired a chest rig and it has a med kit/IFAK attached. It seems the typical mode of operation is to add some trauma shears to the exterior of the med...

Leatherman Raptor

If you’re like me you get excited about anything with Raptor attached to the name. Jurassic Park was one of the primo movies of my childhood and displayed just how badass a Velociraptor was. Sure, T-Rex is the man cause he’s a big mofo but he has tiny arms and can’t see you if you’re...

Be Safe

Sounds like simple, logical advice. Everyone would like to be safe anywhere and all the time. The steps one takes to ensure this state of being will obviously depend on the environment they’re living and operating in. On a day to day basis many if not most of us aren’t going to encounter too many...

a Condor redux

This entry was posted in Medical Gear, MOLLE Gear and tagged on by . Comments Closed
I’ve made many a valiant effort trying to bring a new and/or different product to the blog everyday but after 600+ attempts, some things are bound to be recycled. It would be best if it just happened on accident but good or bad, my brain seems to remember those 600+ things I’ve already talked about....

Other side towards wound

Simplicity is much appreciated in an emergency situation. This is especially true if one has received minimal training or hasn’t had a lot of opportunity to employ the skills they have learned. Call this a follow up to our post from about a month ago called “Tourniquet Talk.” In this case however, the medical product...

a duh moment

It’s fitting that Friday’s blog post was about knives. The same day I wrote it, a friend of mine suffered a knife injury. Don’t worry, it wasn’t a bar fight brawl or a back alley beat down, more like a kitchen nightmare. He was slicing some jalapenos for some chili and the tip of his...
