Adventure Medical Kits Trauma Pack

When I was 6 years old my babysitter forced me to sit on a skateboard with her and roll down the ominously steep street on which we lived. About halfway to the bottom my suspicions that her idea was a terrible one and she an idiot were confirmed, so I set my flip-flop covered foot down to slow us for my dismount. Sadly, my idea and intelligence proved to be no better than my babysitter's. The speed and force of the skateboard's descent rotated my ankle and turned my foot over such that the exposed top of it scraped along the pavement for the duration of our plummet. As I sat at the bottom of the street, screaming like a girl and bleeding like a sacrificial wildebeest for many hours until my mama came out to get me, I bet that Jenny O'Connell was sitting there sure wishing she had one of Adventure Medical Kits' Trauma Paks. And also wishing for this turn of events to mean she would never have to babysit me again.

The Trauma Pak emergency first aid kits are simply stocked with QuikClot, a dressing used to help stop life-threatening bleeding, plus an array of bandages and other covers for treating scrapes, abrasions, gouges, and the loss of at least 3 layers of skin to the ruthless surface of Cherokee Lane. The waterproof outer pouch is pocket-sized for easy carrying in a bag, a backpack, or, like, a pocket.

Specific Trauma Pak contents include:

  • 5" x 9" trauma pad
  • 25g QuickClot Sport
  • 2" x 26" duck tape
  • Triangular bandage for fractures/sprains
  • Gloves, nitrile (Pair), and a hand wipe for wound care
  • Sterile, 4" x 4" packages of gauze (2)
  • Sterile, 2" x 2" packages of gauze (2)
  • 3" conforming gauze bandage
  • Antiseptic wipes
