Hi All Reason for starting this particular thread is if anyone had ideas for "the essential" First Aid kit. I came across a product called Celox hemostatic granules (see link below) and ALWAYS carry. There's also Celox - A for deeper wounds. Basically you sprinkle them on large wounds and they clot the blood very rapidly and prevent potentially life threatening blood loss. I reckon EVERY climber should have it in their kit. If you purchase a packet of either Celox or Celox-A carry it in a tupperware and clearly label "Blood Stopper - Just Sprinkle on wound" making it easy for your workmen to identify. Also make your work mates aware that you carry it. Let's face it even though tree surgery work has improved it's H&S tenfold in the past ten years; it's still a dangerous occupation. Going to work without it is like going to Bangok without your rubbers. http://www.sammedical.com/celox_original.html http://www.sammedical.com/celox_a.html
