Everyone should have the complete U.S. Army IFAK-(improved/individual first aid kit)-

 

The IFAK (Improved First Aid Kit) consists of six expendable medical items packaged into a specially sewn expandable inner pouch with elastic bands to hold each of the items listed below. The inner pouch containing the six items is folded over and has velcro seals so that the inner supply module(pouch) can fit inside of the outer sac. The inner supply module is attached to the outer sac by means of a coil cord which is attached to grommet hole on the corner of the inner sac and then into a second grommet hole at the bottom of a modified MOLLE SAW ammo pouch.

The IFAK increases individual Soldier capabilities to provide Self-Aid/Buddy-Aid and provides interventions for two leading causes of death on the battlefield, severe hemorrhage and inadequate airway. These capabilities increase Soldier survivability during dispersed operations and the expandable pouch allows for METT-C specific “add-ins”.

Includes:

  • 1 – SOFTM Tactical Tourniquet
  • 1 – Elastic Bandage Kit
  • 1 – GA4-½” 100’s Bandage
  • 1 – 1 Surg 2″ 6’s Adhesive Tape
  • 1 – Nasopharyngeal, 28Fr, 12s Airway
  • 1 – 4 Patient Exam 100’s Gloves
  • I recommend adding the following:
  •  Add EMT shears
  • Add quickclot bandages
  • Add Dermabond
  • Add sutures
  • Add regular band-aids
  • Add Betadine
  • Add triple antibiotic ointment
  • Add a small bottle of saline solution for wound irrigation.
  • Add syringe w/out needle for wound irrigation.
  • Add aspirin,ibuprofen,tylenol-and if you have a few-prescription pain meds-such as Percocet,morphine,oxycodone,dilaudid.

Modify the kit according to your needs-it’s a great kit to keep in a bug out bag,or your hunting pack.
