Prepper Medical Supplies

Do you have the right prepper medical supplies? Not sure? Stocking up on the right emergency medical supplies to protect you and your family members in a survival situation when there are no hospitals or doctors around is literally a matter of life and death. To get a handle on what your prepper medical supplies need to be, you must first take on honest look at your overall survival plan. This will give you an idea of what you’ll be up against when our societal infrastructure collapses. Will you be treating average wounds as you run for cover and leave your home, or are you planning to treat gunshot wounds or severed limbs as you stand and fight off looters and robbers? Once you’ve figured out your survival plan, you can start shopping for your supplies.

Survival Medical Supplies

There are a variety of survival medical supplies that you’ll need, but before you start a random stockpile, you’ll need to start with a checklist that covers all of your immediate “what-if’s”. Next start a checklist of supplies that you’ll add to your “bug-out” bags. “Bug out” bags, also known as “go-bags” or “ready-bags”, are medium sized portable gear bags that are already stocked and ready to grab on a moments notice. Some of the most popular items that are added to those bags are listed below.

  • Antibiotic ointments
  • Oral antibiotics
  • Electrical tape
  • Duct tape
  • Splinting material
  • Scalpels
  • Nitrile gloves
  • Antibacterial soap
  • Syringes
  • Antiseptics
  • Gauze
  • Clotting powders
  • Tourniquets
  • Nylon sutures
  • Safety pins
  • Magnifying glass
  • Flashlights
  • Dental tools
  • Claritin
  • Benadryl
  • Ace bandages
  • Rolled gauze
  • Steri strips
  • Butterfly bandages
  • Non-adherent “telfa” pads
  • Dental extractors
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Dental Floss
  • Alcohol pads

Remember, it’s best to start by stocking up on smaller necessity items that you would find in your common first aid kit, and then expand your list of supplies from there. That way you’ll know that you have all of the necessities covered and if a big event happens while you’re searching for the additional items, you’ll be ready. Another key piece of the puzzle is to obtain the knowledge necessary to use the medical supplies that you’ve purchased.
