Gunshot Trauma Aid Kit - Intermediate
It's better to have a GideonTactical GTAK and not need it, than to need one and not have it. The biggest cause of death from handguns is due to exsanguination (bleeding to death) rather than from the bullet impacting a critical link in the nervous system. The primary goal of gunshot wound management is to stop the bleeding. For the recreational shooter, that means having a good gunshot trauma aid kit at hand could be the difference between life and death.
This is an excellent kit to be used on patrol, at a shooting range or anywhere firearms are present or a gunshot wound is possible. The GTAK is designed to treat gunshot and knife wounds which could become fatal prior to the arrival of EMS in 5 to 15 minutes. Each GTAK will treat a gunshot or knife wound or other injury with traumatic bleeding.

The new HyFin® Chest Seal
is a completely occlusive dressing used for the treatment of penetrating injuries to the chest. Now featuring a larger, 6 in. x 6 in. size and enhanced adhesive gel formulation, the new HyFin® Chest Seal creates a superior seal, even in the most adverse conditions. The new HyFin® Chest Seal also features a transparent backing to allow placement directly over the wound and easily conforms to the casualty’s chest.
Z-Medica QuikClot Combat Gauze LE
is similar to the QuikClot Combat Gauze which is carried by every warfighter currently serving in all branches of the U.S. military and many U.S. allied militaries, QuikClot Combat Gauze LE is a soft, white, sterile, nonwoven 3 in x 12 ft z‐folded gauze impregnated with kaolin, an inert mineral with no known contraindications. Each QuikClot Combat Gauze LE unit is individually wrapped in an easy rip, sterile pouch. Rather than a standard roll, Z‐Medica utilizes a z‐fold design which allows for a quicker release from the package and more sanitary application process in a trauma situation. Indicated for temporary external use to control traumatic bleeding, QuikClot Gauze is flexible and pliable and contours to all wounds, and can achieve hemostasis in traumatic bleeding situations in as little as three minutes.
