I want to put together a trauma kit to keep in my truck. Can I please get some advice as to what items I would need in this kit. Thank you.

Gloves, CPR mask, tourniquet. Celox gauze, chest seal, and shears.

Much more than that and it becomes a first aid kit.

I would also add a pressure bandage, tape and cotton gauze. Duct tape is fine.

And training. All this is worthless if you aren’t sure how to use it.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

+1000 on the training comment. As far as the duct tape, it doesn’t seem to stick well at all when things are bloody. Gorilla tape seems to do much under such circumstances.

With the tape, you can wind a few feet around an old motel key card (or skip the card and wind it on itself, but you may lose the last few inches). This makes it a lot more compact than a regular roll.
