This compact Casualty Response Kit was built from specifications provided by Fire Arms and Defensive Tactics Instructors with the US Customs & Border Protection. The Rescue Essentials first aid engineers took a Condor M14 Magazine Pouch secured a NAR Combat Application Tourniquet® to the outside for rapid access and filled a durable a vacuum sealed pouch with the necessary supplies to treat major trauma. The vacuum sealed pouch contains a Z-Pak Dressing, Bolin Chest Seal, SWAT-T® Tourniquet, CPR Face Shield, and one pair of Black Talon Tactical Nitrile Gloves.
The Z-Pak Dressing is a highly absorbent cotton wound packing that is "Z-Folded" for ease in packing wounds. The SWAT-T® Tourniquet is useful as a pressure bandage and also can be applied higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. The Bolin Chest Seal is a sterile occlusive chest wound dressing for treating open pneumothorax and preventing tension pneumothorax that result from gunshots, stab wounds, or other penetrating chest trauma. The patented failure-proof triple-valve design of the BCS allows air and blood to escape while preventing the re-entry of either, thereby eliminating any unwanted gas or liquid exchange at the trauma site. The NAR CAT® Tourniquet is simply the best tourniquet on the market for self-aid, and the Black Talon® Gloves are the gold standard for nitrile gloves.
