CTOMS Emergency Trauma Aid Kit (E-TAK)

A few months ago I ordered a CTOMS Emergency Trauma Aid Kit Base or E-TAK™. Stored in a Ziploc bag, it is perfect to throw in your glove box, range bag or go bag.  As the contents of the kit are fundamental to Tactical Trauma Care, the E-TAK can be used as the basis for building or replenishing kit with in an active team.
