Excellent adaptation of medical principles in the field. Of course, several, other items not usually associated with medicine are today being found in many combat First Aid kits.

Sucking chest wound? Duct-Tape.

Gashes without easy access to stitches? Super Glue.

Neither is pretty, nor especially sterile, but, you have to be alive long enough for an infection to set in. :!:

The video makes it look real simple to somebody like me.

Last week, some of the Friday night tv ninjas were demonstrating/simulating combat first aid... tourniquets and chest seals. I've heard chest seals are expensive and rather vague references to improvisations. Duct tape sounds logical if not totally ideal.

I've heard about Super Glue substitute for stitches.

Tourniquet Question: I've been poking around, mostly on eBay, for CAT and SOF-T. I'm at a loss on the best brand and source. Any thoughts?

If one has a sucking chest would, especially is it's a through and through, one side is closed. The other is sealed, but with a way to vent it. In that case, pressure build-up from the leaking lung can be vented periodically. Same with fluid build- up. A perforated lung and chest-wall is NOT a "walk it off" wound!!

Tourniquets brands are much the same. Try to handle them, and see which one is the most intuitive to you. Also, stay away from bands wider than 3/4"-1", as they will require much more pressure in application than narrower ones. If at all possible, write the time it was applied somewhere visible on the victim. :!:
