effective tactical trauma kits

Physical trauma is defined as "serious injury to the body". There are two main types of physical trauma that can happen through a number of different ways.

First, we have blunt force trauma, this is when an object or force strikes the body and often results in concussions, deep cuts or broken bones.

Penetrating trauma is when an object pierces the skin or body, usually creating an open wound. 

With so many ways trauma can come about, including warfare, car or motorbike accidents, and even in industries such as tree surgery, it's essential to stay prepared for such events. 

One way of doing so is by investing in a tactical trauma kit, which is why we've put together this post to educate our readers on the importance of trauma kits and why they can be a real life-saver in all types traumatic circumstances.


A tactical trauma kit is a medical kit that is specifically designed to deal with major injuries that are typically life threatening and to keep someone alive until medical care can be reached.

They are small, compact kits that are designed to fit in small spaces and to be easy useable and accessible for everyone.

Tactical trauma kits contain emergency medical supplies that are vital for controlling bleeding, packing wounds and helping treat serious injury before medical support arrives.

Unlike first aid kits, tactical trauma kits are not made for light medical wounds.

Instead, they are designed with trauma in mind, and are for more serious injuries.

Car & Motorcycle Drivers

Driving on the roads is more dangerous that many of us think. With so many drivers on the road, accidents can and do happen.

Some trauma kits are specifically designed to be kept inside of cars and even strap to the back of headrests.

Motorcycle drivers are given little to no protection should they become involved in an accident, which is where a tactical trauma kit could be a real life-saver.
