Medical Supplies - Items used to fill the kits

Recommended Posts

Here's what we've got so far.....

 

A small gauze bandage (but non elastic), some bandaids, lube (can never have enough lube, especially for burns), alcohol prep pad, tefla pads, and sodium cloride/sodium bicarbonate packs - not as good as alka seltzer, but still good for hangovers and upset stomachs. This was also good if someone had cramps from heat exhaustion, quite common in the tropics. The civilian cepacol is for runny noses and sore throats, also quite common in tropical conditions (along with diarhea).

Would anyone happen to have a listing of what items were in the M-3 or Unit 1 bags, Viet Nam, Gulf War I or II, when originally issued to the medics? Also, what is in the current "Combat Life Saver" Bags?
