Hi guys,

I found this link while browsing and thought this would make a valuable addition to an anglers first aid kit. A little drastic but it does help to be prepared sometimes....

Bops,
unless people are trained, would not recommend quikclot.there is a lot of heat release-hyperthermic -reaction, and may cause more damage to viable tissue.Have used it and it works, but most times, short of a battlefield injury(yes, have seen those too) Many Emergency response personnel I have worked with or spoken to in US have a similar opinion...
Suggest pressure/packing with many layers of gauze/sponge/cloth and in case no fracture of a limb-elevation.In reality, we control major bleeds like this, even with bony damage...
recommend a 2" x 2" first aid book which I feel any outdoorsy layperson should make 'must read' for this purpose-Rustam has a copy.Would be happy to send you a copy if you can scan and put up here...just my 2 rupees!
Best
Axx

Thanks for the advice about the Quick clot, Asif.

I haven't gotten myself a scanner yet. Prefer to use the digicam as a scanner for important scans.

Don't have a scanner but I could take pics and give the CD to Bops. However, before hosting it here, B will need to know if he would be infringing any copyright law.

I don't recall seeing one. The book is in the car but will check later.

Hi Rusty,

I'll find a scanned pdf copy of an existing first aid manual and post it here. Don't bother with taking pics there's probably too many to do.
