I'm inclined to agree with you, Shooter. When I envision emergencies that would require airways and suction, I have a hard time coming up with a scenario where the patient wouldn't be in need of immediate definitive care. The whole idea behind a a "true S hitting TF", as in this thread, is that definitive care likely won't exist, or will be very limited/ situational.

I can think of a lot of things in an IFAK or aid bag that could have life-saving effects, even without definitive care. Airways and suction are not one of them. Now don't get me wrong, my aid bag has both in it. But my aid bag is not for a SHTF scenario, it's for real life.
I am one with the Force, and the Force is with me.
