TMc: Surviving Gun Shot Wounds | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Chicago Student Medic Training Video

    Medic Training Video

    Build Trauma Kit Video

    The good news...75% of gunshot wounds are not fatal; bad news...police are not required to offer medical assistance; doctors are seldom by-standers. If you carry guns, it is a good idea to have your own trauma kit and know as much as possible about self-help.

    I ordered several items from Amazon for the first aid kit. I injured myself several times at the range with "slide bite" and various skin pinches with semi-auto pistols. A few hot shell casings hit from neighboring shooters. In younger hunting days, my cohorts nearly wounded me. Do not tell me this never happened to you.

    Conclusion: The Chicago video taught me that policemen are not required to give aid and they may ask good Samaritans to leave a crime scene. The Medic video shows fast and dirty quick action that may be best while waiting for the ambulance.

    Caution: Like everything else, there are legal questions to be answered before trying to be an EMT.

A simple poncho can be used as a tent, water catcher, or trap as well as a medical evac-stretcher. As Bedford Forrest might have put it, "Doing the mostest with the leastest."

Maybe some mace or taser to the Commissioner meetings as well for self protection.

Good idea B.T.

With the lifestyle I keep, I might should carry gauze and white "nurses" tape instead.

Almost every old man I know carries Band Aids in his Wallet. Some have more Band Aids than money since the credit card has become the de-facto currency of today. Many years from now when they dig up my neighborhood, I suspect they will say " Well he was broke for a Doctor!" For that reason, I always carry both money and band aids because I want some future Archaeologist to say. "What are those green pieces of paper?"
