I have noticed a lot of mentioning of tourniquets, and wish to say to only use a tourniquet in an emergency situation. Before using a tourniquet first try using clotting gauze and applying pressure to the area.



A tourniquet should be the last option that is used due to the fact that it cuts off circulation. A tourniquet is designed to cut off blood circulation, which can cause necrosis if left on too long. Taking one off or loosening should only be done by a medical professional.




Seconding this statement! While I do agree that a tourniquet or two is a good idea to bring, it is imperative that you understand how to use them properly, and the severity of injury that dictates the use of one.

These devices are meant to be used in very dire cases, such as loss or partial loss of a limb, massive blood loss, etc. They are not, in any way, a piece of kit you should hope to have to even use, nor will you have a use for otherwise.

Once again recommending that any urban explorer makes an effort to get first aid training of some kind! Some libraries will offer courses like them for free, sometimes community centers or community colleges too, they are invaluable!

Never in 30 years have I had a first aid kit with me. I carried bandages and alcohol wipes in my backpack. Just in case I got hurt or burned somewhere. Yeah, well, I'd get something from the drugstore for a burn. I've never called an ambulance. I always had some kind of pill for headaches and stomach aches. But now carry a fridge with me where I have lancets, syringes, needles, test strips, and insulin. There are also glucagon and sugar lollipops nearby. These are for the baby. I am constantly on the safe side, as I don't know what will happen next. I also bought a kit for myself (for adults) at 72hours.ca in advance. It's not that hard to carry. You can put it in the car (there is already a first aid kit in the car).

I rarely use the first aid kit, it is better to see a doctor. You can even go to special procedures, as it seems to me it is very effective. For example on laser body modeling, it helps a lot to maintain the correct body shape, for example if the diet does not help to lose weight properly and qualitatively, or the result is not as expected, then Coolsculpting in Toronto will help here, I recommend this procedure and do it here, because I've already had it and I was amazed with the result. Finally I got what I've been dreaming about for so long in the area of body correction.
