Absolutely great place to buy Medical supplies!!!
« on: June 23, 2010, 10:06:15 AM »
I have ordered some supplies from these guys for camping as well as put together my own blow out kits for the range (@ half the price of comparable kits). The prices are awesome and the customer service is great! I ordered from them twice so far and both times the package arrived a day early!

Chinook Medical Supplies

If you are into survival, you really should have a serious blow out kit.

Mods feel free to move....

The coolest thing about these guys is that they have a minimum order of $25.00, so people who can only afford a personal kit can get one. Agreed on selection too, they have everything one would need from the smallest kit to group kits. I feel that we all should have pretty extensive medical kits, especially if you do allot of firearm training.

Blow Out Kits should be sold at every gun store and range, IMO.

What is a blow out kit?

Is is basically an immediate action medical kit used by military, first responders and EMT's. It is to be used "to perform such emergency medical procedures as are needed to maintain a patent airway with adequate breathing and cardiovascular circulation until the patient can be transferred to an appropriate destination for advanced medical care."

I am not an EMT. I carry one of these with my EDC so a qualified individual can use this ON ME if I am incapacitated.

An EMT buddy of mine explained it this way; The main goal is to preserve as many cells as possible before a doctor can get to you.

Giving credit where it's due, Tactical Response has a full kit for about $40.00 already to go.

 I had to make a few for family, friends and range buddies so I chose to build them myself from Chinook components.

just wanted to add I like the idea of getting some of the individual modules including the dental kit. I was out backpacking for a week with some friends a few years ago and my filling came out the 2nd night of the trip and I had a hell of time with it. I could only eat a little at a time and only on one side of my mouth. I wish I would have had something like that in my FAK

I ordered quite a bit from Chinook Medical last year and recommend them as well.  Their equipment is high quality, they have a great selection, and good prices.  Two other companies I used when putting together medical supplies were http://www.mooremedical.com and http://www.statmedical.com/.  No one company seems to sell everything and each may have the lowest price on certain items.

PAprepared, what items do you have in your "blow out" kit.

mxitman, I agree about not overlooking the dental aspect. Dental pain can be some of the most incapacitating.

Don't want to speak for PA, but check out Tactical Response's VOK.  It's a great way to start.  PA has a link for this above.  It will show the contents and there is a little youtube to go along with it too!

Yup, thats the one I started with. Tac response's kit is almost perfect. I would add a better tourniquet though in retrospect.

Here are the direct links to the one I put together from Chinook (and others):

I also added good heavy duty safety pins, alcohol swabs and duck tape all from Walgreens. Cost about $10.00. I am missing a few things here, I will later once I remember what they were.

If you are not building several kits for a group, I suggest getting the TR V.O.K., it comes already packaged in an airtight bag and costs only a few dollars more.

I too am a former CTD customer who will never order again.  The last order I placed was for several smaller items,(a magazine for my CZ-52 and a box of ammo) The shipping was more than the order. When I inquired they told me it was because the two items were in two separate warehouses so I was getting charged two minimal shipping charges. Excuse me did the guy who thought of "New Coke" start working there? Anyway that is when I found The Sportsmansguide and CTD lost my business.
