TMK Medic Pack

I thought I would share some pics of my Medic Kit. My pack is a fully stoked Medic (TMK-ME) also pictured is my blowout kit and Rip Shears with carrier.

These bags are available online but cost close to 1k.

The TMK bag, Rip Shears and blowout kit are all page 13nd to me so they are mine. Those travel with me everywhere I go.

The EMT/Trauma bags and emergency O2 kits are my issued by my unit. I have return those when I PCS transfer.

Those are National Guard combat IV Kit. We use them when we instruct TCCC and CLS. He have become more in debt as far as instructing on thier use. Several reports have shown blood clots being blown out of major wounds by improper flow rates, etc. I always carry a couple in my bag. I've used them to treat heat casualites several times. I can get you a NSN for it if you would like?

I have also added some additional photos to the individual module contents.

No worries, I just thought I would throw some of my newest equipment up. Those small IV packs are awesome. I love the TMK Bag with the velcro modules. If there is more than one casualty I can pull the requred module out and toss it to another SAR Swimmer or Corpsman.

Before the TMK we were issed the London Bridge Medic Pack NSN 6515-01-565-0059.

This is a good pack. I got a TMK-ME as well. It is a nice large and slim pack with lots of options due to the internal velcro and included pouches. Looks like Chinook just came out with a smaller one TMK-MO http://www.chinookmed.com/cgi-bin/item/ ... ----------
