It is National Stop the Bleed Month and as a follow up to the sessions hosted in partnership with UC Health and UofL Hospital, we owe you a list of affordable supplies for building your own kits!
This list of supplies comes highly recommended by medical professionals, both for efficacy and cost. These supplies yielded 6 kits at approximately $25/kit. Each kit should include one tourniquet, a pair of medical gloves, a compression bandage, medical scissors, a good amount of gauze, and a sharpie. Here is a list of the materials we used and a useful link to identify them via Amazon:
A tourniquet helped save my life. Please consider building kits for yourself and those you love so that you will be prepared to save a life too.
