First Aid compact: TATONKA First Aid Sets

Red and practical – TATONKA First Aid Sets accompany you on every tour: When out in nature, you may need quick and competent aid in the case of accident, medical equipment, which comprises a little more than the average first aid kit. In conjunction with Outdoorschule Süd, TATONKA has developed a First-Aid system which sets new standards in respect of the items contained, their use and their quality.
TATONKA offers the perfect first aid product for every need: The First Aid Basic contains the basic items for one person on a day tour.
 
The waterproof cover of the First Aid Basic Waterproof keeps all the items dry and ready for use even in shifting snow, rain or for water activities.
 
First Aid Compact is designed for two persons on a tour of 1-3 days; larger groups of up two four persons are recommended First Aid Complete, which has the perfect complete kit for tours of up to a week. 

 
For guides on shorter tours and for groups who are en route for up to two weeks, TATONKA and Outdoorschule Süd recommend First Aid Advanced, with which in the case of emergency, up to six people can be taken care of.
 
For travelers in countries with problematic hygiene conditions and for tours well away from civilization, the First Aid Sterile, is ideal and as well as other sterile materials such as injection needles, syringes and an infusion system also contains a scalpel and in emergency can also be handed over to a doctor or first helper.

In addition, TATONKA provides more first-aid bags for many different uses: First Aid School is carried by children on their way to and from school, at break time or in their leisure time. Adults too, should always carry a small first aid kit with them for emergencies: First Aid Mini for example, contains plasters and dressings and also pincers to remove a tick. 


The first aid bags First Aid, available in three sizes, can be filled individually, the emergency kit rucksack First Aid Pack and First Aid Family, a spacious first-aid box with space for everything you should really have with you on a family holiday.


 
TATONKA first–aid equipment range is supplemented by the Rettungsdecke, a blanket made of aluminized PE foil which provides good insulation and optimum reflection of body warmth.
 
 

Top quality compact sets for competent first aid

Regardless of where your tour leads you, the first aid set should always be easy to access and ready for immediate use. For this reason many TATONKA backpacks have a first- aid compartment already integrated in the top and so making quick and easy access possible.
 
When filling its First-Aid packs, TATONKA places value on high quality products, as only then can optimum first aid be provided in the case of an emergency. For this reason the First-Aid Sets for example, do not contain a cheap plaster roll which often does not stay reliably in place but instead contain best quality sports tape which is suitable for holding dressings in place and also to prevent blisters. The clinical scissors enclosed not only cut plasters to size but can also be used to cut stronger fabrics, for example if a wound needs to be accessed. The triangular cloth in tear-resistant material helps to keep an arm steady in a good position and can also be used as a carrying aid for the comfortable transport of an injured person.
 
 
First Aid info sheet: accident knowledge-to-go
 
In the case of an emergency, not only the equipment is decisive but also appropriate knowledge is necessary: Since one is all alone out in the countryside, a “cheat sheet” can give you some ideas. First-Aid Sets from TATONKA therefore also include an information sheet from the Outdoorschule Süd which helps the reader step by step, describing with useful memory aids what is to be done in an emergency situation. If you would like to know more on this theme, you will find that the book “Erste Hilfe Outdoor” (published by ZIEL Verlag) is a valuable manual for good outdoor emergency management.
