All right, we have [the] great pleasure of having Sergeant Tony [Hakuna] from the Army National Guard, Oregon farming Oregon Army National guard he’s going to go over with us his go bag. Which is his medic kit, woody What do you call those kits by the way Tony when his car our medic bags? Would you have go kids individual go kits [that] are? Specifically for the cls people we [train]. [what] [is] it for people that don’t know cll us means combat lifesavers, okay? And they are our regular Joe’s that we train in the areas of learning how to bandage stop the bleeding basically stop the bleeding start the breathing process of the AbCs and CpR around and breathe and bleeding stuff is going to kill you out. There is the Is the Terrence come on [engineers]? Okay, come on in Terrence Another another military guy here and [tarik] who are you with? Sergeant Mitchell with a 50 second minimum care attachment good enough, so tony’s going over his medic bag with us I’m going to do a little youtube video. We just did some suturing nice. How long did we sit here for a hour hour? He’s ready was just going over some stuff that I wanted to you know get some Refresher on a lot of stuff of everything so he’s ready to rock and roll I’ll try do my best. [I] think it was that bag with you all the time this bag was with me all the time uh not when I was with the navy I had what they called the the unit 3 which was a different a small little Trifold Medic bag now what who’s whose bag? is that what is the company the company that makes this bag is London Bridge trading company and These are awesome bags these are their um the first ones that came out with called their specops banks the it is it set up specifically as a as a Medical bag or just a multi-use packed it said for simply as a medic okay? Good with this comes two little other cases one with a red handle is marked for your um Your meds that you would have to Dispense ie or your lidocaine Whatever you’re up to whatever is authorized [to] be [ivory] okay, okay, and then the other one has a blue handle on it and that’s for your airway, and you can put your laryngoscopes in there and your Et tubes, and [everything] like that, and they nest inside there They live inside looks I put inside this specifically this specific bag. [I] try to just make it make my bag as lightweight, but have enough stuff with me for what I’m going to need so so gear management is sort of individual at some degree and With the with the gears are coming out with that we have to wear into the field now. They they have adapted For the medics they’ve adapted a little It’s called the molle system, and you have a little each person on there under their chester II that they wear will have a first-aid pouch with okay, and it’s and it’s identified by a little tab on the top okay, and It has in it you have blood stoppers. It’s like a blowout kit. It’s like a blowout kit. Yeah, it would be an immediate immediate [go-to] kit right and in general as a medic if you’re going to Help someone you’re going to use their [on] [board] blowout kit before you dig into your gear right okay, and so everybody’s carrying Some medical [image] cameras on some sense of medical stuff on so give us a tour. This is a cool looking greg So what’s on the outside here? The outside here is just the outside compartment. I saw you have some pockets first I’m just going to guide you a little bit oh, yeah, what he got down below this I have my trauma says here yep, and I have a carabiner and Your little ear protection clip to this and then on the [other] side over [here]. I have another carabiner Yeah, and if we if we had somebody had o2 and they [needed] [a] key I carry an extra key got near a chewkey So also these little straps that are snapping down here if you can also jump with this bag And this is this is where that I want matt formatted for you to jump okay when you if you have to do any parachute Ops and stuff In here is [like]. I carry all this stuff that I have in here. I kind of like you [know] wow you know Accumulated over the years you’re talking to a bag man, so I’m agatha big and I have my israeli dressings Gonna have my I believe these are my Four inch you have six inch for bigger wounds four inch for like your your minimal arm [moves] or lower leg wounds yep I have some [car] bats over here what I mean [verka] rats are like another quick use bandage They can also be improvising to a sling okay? Flashlight, [what] do you got for a flashlight? [I] have this is just a little Led light that I have yeah And [when] I but I also carry on you know you get these at the store for you know anywhere from 25 to 40 sun dollars it’s amazing. How expensive flat lighting exactly and then I also have in here. I have some Kerlix gauze And some individual sizes in a straps And a straps you have [a] nice Setup of insulins here. I got like clamps Needle nose needle nose forceps and everything like that bunch of scissors different sizes Iris scissors and everything cool Some nice finger split finger Splints and everything here over here. I have this is [a] nice bag. Oh, I love this thing It’s like I have some more curl wax here a bunch of bunch marker bats because you can never have too many of those – yeah never [too] many of anything actually so and Here this is You’re always going to be out of what you need the best. This is a cricoid kit. Yep, okay? I’ve has that one. It’s a nice one. Whose is that that is I believe Smith’s okay? emergency cricothyrotomy kit nice and then these are the famous hema, con bandages, okay [which] were actually developed here a village here by a doctor here at this [hospital] and a doctor who put white [kiss] [you] yeah, and One of the best hospitals around that I’m as far as I’m concerned been with them for eight years Also had the pleasure of working with Dr.. Peru who was on the other camera there? He is a former navy message myself and We bumped into one another Recognize one [another] when he care to work yeah exactly, but so these are these [are] nice these are nice Yeah, this is the first size they came out and the ambulance crews used those [Cj] around here they do and it’s like work great, so You got a fair amount in there, huh? I also have a Sherman chest seals or on any chest trauma, so this is one of many different commercial [quebec] seals that have come out and the problem with chest seals the problem with these are is like you have a person’s got a sucking chest wound okay and for those people that don’t know what a second chest wound a second chest wound is when you have a penetration volunteer to your upper torso that ie within the lung cavity and it Punctured your lung allowing air to get into that space okay, and by that it creates. What’s called a pneumothorax [all] right and it Compresses will compress. What’s left that lung into the other side okay into the other side making it virtually? Your your breathing is labored, okay? So what we do with these chest seals is you want to place them over the the site of the wound okay? but before you do you ask the patient to breathe in and Then breathe out breathe in as much as they can even though it’s going to hurt and then breathe out exhale out all there They can and then slap it on and just like get it in place What it does that creates a vacuum steel into the chest? Not allowing a moon not allowing air to get in but it allows the air to escape on Italy and [Alysha], okay. Good enough but with these you [have] you run the promise like you’re out there running operations a guy goes down You’re going to be sweaty because [you] got all its gear on and you want to make sure Justice on sweaty chest you have that you have a dry area so it’s going to stick okay another method for If I will if you don’t mind again yeah, this is See the plastic seal on this yep, okay, you take the plastic seal off Slap it over the wound okay You tape down for [saw] or take down three sides leaving the four side open to act as a flutter [belt], right? So you’re doing a field expedient? exactly you’re doing [a] flutter valve by using your Packaging and taping three sides down and on these chest seals you have a flood about it’s like a little Looks like a little piece to rubber balloon. It’s just a little um What do we call a tiny penrose drain yep? Okay? So I think inside every medic or corpsman. There’s a little macgyver Exact do you agree? [oh] yeah? It’s like you just you come up you [got] [an] [odd] improvise You will come up on your fellow medics and stuff like this, and [you] look at the [er]. And what they’ve done Wow, that’s awesome. I’m gonna write that down right and you guys are always good about sharing Oh exactly, but that’s this compartment and a look at your main concern are your soldiers? My name is my soldiers I think you know I’ve been doing this for about 19 years and I love my job and You know I’m all about code all right. Let’s see what you got there within this stuff I’m just going to wear in that written that isn’t the main main compartment Okay
This main compartment here was when these guys come to us brand new where I told you get those other two little bags For airway and your your medications yeah, and they can fit [right] in here in either pocket, okay? what I do is I streamline my bag, and I just Take out this Up here. I’ve got some extra pan. I’ve got some of this [H&H] compressed gauze. Yeah, okay for bandaging [he’ll] compress camouflage okay, and I’ve got some house. We’ll have a panel a marker panel [aviation] parking so so doesn’t need [to] [evac] so we need to evaC somebody and we set up a Casualty collecting point we can throw this out and the lastest what is the method of marking sight [you] either use smoke? Flares or you can mark your panel or a marker panel sweet a lot of us carry these on this Four by fours up in here. I’ve got hand cleaning Purell Magill Forceps Magill forceps Yeah, we are all issued these and these are for Airway airway Only if you can see something in the airway you can get at it like with how they teach in CpR. Now is when you’re doing a finger sweep. Don’t do a blind finger sweep if you can see the object So you’re not going to use that McGill unless you can see what you’re grabbing? Exactly unless you can see what you wrote I even have my own a little field medical suture case Nice set up with everything. I would need a little pocket here You could put your your sutures in here [here] and everything so everything I would need to go And you definitely have the suturing skills up Thanks to hair doctor here In this lord portion I set up my IV banks okay. I’ve got I carry 500 mills right now You can’t carry a thousand mills in this bag now just to reiterate this is One if you need to start an IV here you’ve got this [decent] got this package only to go stuff [but] [I] got my I got at least two 18 Gauge Needles I have a The Ivies the IV starter kit.

  1. @USNERDOC that was awsome u gave him that multitool… thats an awsome gift and he needed one… your a good person… when u gonna start selling kits?

  2. Not on topic but I just went to Oregon for vacation. I fell in love, great people and a wonderful state. Thank you for your service guys and thanks for taking time to educate us.

Love your Vids Keep them coming Sir .

  4. @kurlis – options are (1) quick hair removal with medical tape / duct tape or (2) quick razor . . . I would go with option 1 which is the simplest approach. I sure other suggestions will roll in at some point 😉

  5. Great information DOC, I bet you were in bag heaven! Thanks also to Sgt. Acuna for taking us through a well prepared medic bag.

  6. Looks like we have a Duck fan!!!! Great review, thanks Doc. I sure remember how much we appreciated our Corpsmans, priceless.

  7. @USNERDOC Hair removal with medical tape? ouch! I guess it is better then being dead though, lol. I am a very hairy fellow, so that is good information for me. I guess I would not notice that pain to much if I already have a hole in my chest anyway, lol.

  8. @Jesses001 – I think a chest injury would be sufficient distraction that you would not be aware of, or care about, hair removal . . . my sincere hope is that this is strictly an academic conversation. May you always be safe! Thanks for watching.

  9. Great vid, Doc. We always relied heavily on or Corpsmen! No finer men! Thank you very much Sgt. Acuna. Be ready, and have your guys ready to hydrate! It is hotter than Hades down here near Shelby. You may get to use you IV sets! I wish you and your entire Batt best wishes, good luck & a safe return to your loved ones.

  10. Great video, Doc! And it was very touching of you to give him that gift at the end. I'm sure he was very appreciative, and will make good use of it. You rock!

  11. Previously, I watched Sgt. Acuna pracitce his suturing. However, I don't recall seeing any gloves on Sgt. Acuna during the procedure… I'm the last to criticize our Armed Services members in any regard; however, if realism and safety procedures are to be adhered to on a strict basis, I believe he should have donned them. I have found that when I have sewn, I've had the time to prep and put on a pair of gloves at least. Agreed?
    Not knocking, just being aware and trying to aid in excellence!

  12. I feel bad for being picky and all, but I do remember hearing in this vid about how you always wear gloves. I know it was just practice, but I'm just trying to point out the importance of consistency in our medical habits. What do you think?

  13. @sabr686 – no worries! We always use gloves and even made that comment in the video. Since we were using a Kleenex box and DuoDerm for a simulator we elected to forgo the gloves. For work on patients, always good prep, clean technique and gloves.

  15. I am surprised only carrying 500 cc bags of fluid and only 18 ga IV caths still a good kit but for traumatic blood loss surprised just an observation not a slam

  16. Doc, that was a great video, and …a nice move at the end there with your leatherman! Sgt Acuna and yourself are GOOD MEN! Thank God for men such as yourselves being in your positions! God bless and keep the Sarge safe, as well as all our troops!

  17. Hey Doc, I have been accumulating medical supplies, and attending classes in Mexico with the Red Cross. I have been setting up my Backpack with 2 500ml. of saline, Is that the best recomendation, to get an IV started? Generally speaking, to get a vein while there is time before things complicate? I know there is a great array of fluids, but for field trama, what do you recomend? I know that after EMT arrive, or DRS have patient, they most likely will have access to every type of fluids.

  18. I use almost the same bag made from voodoo tactical LOVE the set up and works great. Thanks for the vid. And so true medics love bags!

  19. To anyone in the market for an Aid Bag: This is an outstanding piece of equipment. It can fit and hold everything you need at a 68W or a CLS Soldier to treat and sustain combat casualties until MEDEVAC/CASEVAC etc. Spend the extra dime on it, it'll last you a long time. If you don't know what you're doing medically though, just stick with a MOLLE pouch of basic first-aid gear.

  20. @Zachman1124 – Thank you. Tony is a great guy and I pray he is always safe. I am sure he will appreciate these comments.

  21. Would like to point out and comment on placement of the items in the bag. I find it odd that his gloves are buried so deep in the bag, when his airway and bleeding control items are in the outer pocket.

    Also, many of the items that are in his bag need to come out of the packaging – in a trauma situation, rapid application is much more important than sterility.


  22. I disliked this video for two reasons. The bag itself is over $500.00. A lot of us blue collar workers simply cannot afford it. The second reason is that the topic went on too many tangents. I would like to see a comprehensive video/s of all the items within the bag.

  23. Loved the video. Showing what a combat medic would use. Not what a person without training would use, like ↓ that guy.

    Thanks for the awesome video.

  24. definitely need to get my medic bag together. this gives me some ideas. The bags at work are cool but it would be nice to have one that has some subdued colors instead of bright red with the reflective star of life. Thanks for giving me some ideas.

  25. This is my favorite video on YouTube. I don't know exactly why, I'm just an EMT and don't need a bag like this, but I enjoy watching it. Sgt. Acuna and Terrance are cool guys. Thanks, USNERDOC!

  26. thanks for taking the time to show us the medical bag. Wish I had kept my stuff from the military when I got out, but live and learn. Again Thanks.

  27. as he mentioned everybody carrys their own in the molly system on the vest, you use theire own tourniquet

  28. Wow great video. I am impreesed an a little envious of your medical kit all I have is a upgraded BLS Thomas pack. Keep up the great videos.

  29. I looked over all the observations on here. I just think that is a excellent clip. My younger brother just wishes to become staggering with women of all ages. He figured out alot from Master Attraction. (Google it.) The guidance for attracting girls through nightclubs from Master Attraction got him his 1st sex in over 3 years. I got annoyed however coz I heard them all.

  30. informative video but most likely people watching the video have a medical background like myself so no need to explain how to use the equipment.

  31. Awesome review of the medic bag. The one thing I disagreed with is the use of phenergan. Compazine, for me works better,  for nausea.

  32. Nice bag and well packed. I only had the M5 and packed it my way. thanks for sharing.

  33. What did the physician hand the medic in the end when he said put this in your bag/to good use….?

  34. Great vid, great review…my one ptet peeve though..mthe intervuewer talking too much.. i know i sound like a bitch right now
