While other folks are talking about gunshot wound treatment classes…

I’d like to point out that the Hyfin Chest Seals I bought as part of my roll your own IFAK post expire this month.

So, if you bought some back then, check them. They may be expired.

I’m glad to see that Joe and Ry took a class similar to the one oddball and I took a while back. Their class looks much more in-depth than the one we took. I really wish this were more readily available to more people.

I’ve been tossing around the idea of getting with a local EMT, ER Nurse, or some other trauma specialist to to a video series on this stuff. I may even try to get an in-person class together for the NRA Convention here in Nashville in 2015.

Unfortunately, I suspect the reason these classes aren’t more widely available is because the market isn’t asking for them. A local training facility recently stopped offering “tactical medicine” (God how I hate that term) classes due to lack of interest.

If you have the opportunity, please take it.
