You may recall that Dark Angel Medical already makes a pocket trauma kit. However, this new “Mini” version is even smaller and lighter. It includes the following:

  1. SWAT-T Tourniquet – This can be used as a tourniquet or a pressure dressing. It is also extremely compact when rolled.
  2. Celox Rapid Ribbon – This is a narrow hemostatic gauze that is 1″ wide and 5′ long.
  3. Gloves – Obviously, it is preferable to not to catch cooties from some guy’s blood.
  4. 2′ of Duct Tape – This can be used a number of ways including turning the 3 mil thick plastic packaging into a occlusive chest dressing.

This is obviously a very minimalist kit and it certainly limits your options but this is also a kit that you might actually carry. It’s four simple contents are versatile and compact which is pretty much all you can ask from a compact trauma kit.
