Pain meds can be pilfered as can surgical instruments and suture

Hog hunters suture their own dogs pretty often. In a pinch the same could be done on humans

I agree with @Thorne. Let’s create a Committee of Tactical [REDACTED] Combat Care.
Message permalink: 707712393106423919
I like where you're taking it but we honestly need a few committees. Do we have any central hubs?
Message permalink: 707714289137352754
We can discuss solutions for our specific situation.
Message permalink: 707714364949528707
I don’t know of any central hubs that we could use that are straight medical.
Message permalink: 707715371540414557
We can always create that.
Message permalink: 707715389563469947
I guess what we could do is kind of organize a network. Or a framework really
Message permalink: 707718526642946101
The worst part is there's no real way to identify. Or we don't want to do it on a public server.

Keybase is a possible solution.

Hey all, on the subject, let's talk about medical emergencies. Not every medical emergency requires hospitalization and in the field many can even be stabilized. Does anybody have any prior knowledge on this subject?

I keep Amoxicillin and I’m gonna work on sourcing other meds related.
Message permalink: 707782207342903366
And yes, field stabilization is a thing. Correct me if I’m wrong, but couldn’t you stabilize a casualty with TXA for a while as long as HEMCON is maintained and be able to wait a good while until EVAC?

You're no good at any level if you're ridden with disease and your feet are fucked up lol @RaginMedic23 I’m fine with learning about infections and the like. One damn thing people seem to overlook is preventing that shit from ever happening. Change socks every single time they get wet, maintain proper hygiene.

How about we make a separate medical server where we can all post evidence based medicine and discuss it all?
Message permalink: 707788270183907419
And then publish findings that would be useful?

I think it would be a good start in getting our medical shit together.
