Check out the modular system(s) from Chinook Medical. I've been using their stuff for years. They are primarily a LE and military provider. Great folks. Their "6PAK" is a great place to start: http://www.chinookmed.com/cgi-bin/it...--------------

None of the items on the list are prescription drugs; for those items, you'll need some help from a friendly doctor. I also added some Vietnam-era battlefield medical items, which are readily available.
Can you scan and attach that list?

If you know or trust someone with EMT/medical experience, go with that. I have no idea who the hell Patriot Nurse is in real life or what her qualifications are, but was trying to expand out from just watching people shoot stuff. Eventually I will just take some classes.
I think if you combine this with blood loss and airway management, you have a good piece of kit.
