Disaster Kit Recommendations - Stitching 101

Disaster Girl's Survival Kit Recommendations
Bonus items you should add on top of items listed in  previous survival kit article.

Adding the Power of a Basic Emergency Stitching to your Stash:

The next thing I want to recommend to add to your disaster kit on top of a first aid kit would be a surgical kit, in the rare event that something does need to be stitched up, etc. Now while this won't help you in more serious circumstances where you actually need major surgery- it will come in handy to have. Whether you learn to use it yourself or someone with emergency medical training needs supplies for something, either way you know you are covered.

Below I've listed all the emergency surgical related items you should have in your kit:

Emergency Surgical and Suture Kit:
Emergency Surgical Kit
 Retail Price: $39.95 + S&H

Sterile Gauze Pads

Dynarex Gauze Pads
Retail Price: $7.23 + S&H

Medical Tape
Nexcare Waterproof Medical Tape
Retail Value: $6-7

Sterile Cotton Balls
Curad Sterile Cotton Balls
Retail Price: $2.12 + S&H

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
Retail Price: $1-3


Hopefully you'll never need to use any of these things, but it certainly can not hurt to have them in your stash!

Happy Surviving!
