"Blow Out" Trauma Kit w/QuikClot **Promo**


October 16, 2012, 12:48 PM
With the approaching the Fall months, I'm getting more & more calls from hunters, match competitors & range junkies looking to upgrade or switch equipment for the 2013 run. However, one simple item/addition that sometimes gets overlooked is a "Blow Out" first aid kit. Heaven forbid one of us ends up with a traumatic injury in the woods, at a match, or the range, but it makes good sense to be prepared should the worst come to fruition. Moreover, more & more organized shooting events are beginning to require that all shooters have such a kit as part of required gear in order to participate.

There are many different setups out there that address different perceived range/match emergencies, such as IFAKs, "boo boo" kits, standard first aid kits, etc. The kit being offered here is put together by Adventure Medical Kits & not only includes items to remedy the small, more common injuries such as cuts, scrapes, etc., but also includes a pack of QuikClot. As many who have "been there, done that" on the battlefield will attest, QuikClot is a "last resort" product in the event that bleeding can't be stopped by all other available methods (heavy gauze & pressure, tournaquet, etc). It should not be used with 99% of injuries, but it is better to have it & not need it than to need it & not have it should a 1% type of emergency arise.

Here is a description & list of item included in this Blow Out kit:

Designed with all of the essentials required to stop or control bleeding. QuikClot is a chemically inert material in a mesh bag that speeds coagulation of blood, resulting in a stable clot that stops bleeding. Stops bleeding quicker than conventional methods and is safe to leave on wounds until more advanced medical help arrives. * Package contains a 3.5 x 3.5 in. (25g) bag of QuikClot.
