Emergency Bags & Kits
Bags, Backpacks and Cases for Rescue Missions
Emergency cases, backpacks or bags are used to transport emergency equipment and first aid supplies. Each type of emergency and first aid bag has specific advantages and is suited to various areas of application. Here, you will learn more about these types of medical bags.
The Emergency Bag - A True All-Rounder
The classic emergency bag is equipped with handles as well as a shoulder strap to allow the user to carry it by hand or on the shoulder/back. As a rule, first aid bags are made from water-resistant tissue like nylon. For an even higher level of protection, some bags are made of waterproof and dirt-resistant tarpaulin. They are ideal for field work in difficult weather conditions and may even be used on unpaved grounds, such as meadows or fields. Depending on the application, tarpaulin bags can be washed and reused, whereas nylon bags often need to be replaced after such assignments.
Rescue and paramedic bags are available in various sizes. We offer module bags and pouches, such as the Teqler Molle Bag for use with materials for specific applications (e.g. for treating burns), as well as large bags that are equipped with one or multiple outer compartments.
Additionally, you may choose between empty and pre-filled bags. The empty medical bags can either be filled at your facility or you can select the required supplies with help of the handy emergency configuration tool from Praxisdienst.
The Emergency Backpack - For Excellent Mobility
In contrast to classic equipment bags, medical rucksacks allow the paramedics to keep their hands free. This comes in particularly handy when the rescue mission leads the responders through rough terrains, when they have to carry the patient on a stretcher or when they need to carry additional equipment.
Another difference lies in the division of the bags. Often, emergency rucksacks are filled with removable module bags that are attached to the inside with help of velcro strips. Moreover, most backpacks feature a range of outer compartments that provide additional storage space for equipment and consumables.
Emergency Cases - Safely Carry Sensitive Equipment
Emergency cases are made from robust materials, such as plastic or aluminium to reliably protect the medical kits from damages. The materials are hard-wearing, waterproof and easy to clean, which makes the cases particularly durable, while soft bags and backpacks need to be replaced on a regular basis.
Like first aid bags and backpacks, the cases are available with or without contents. Some manufacturers, like Söhngen or Weinmann offer ready-made cases with various types of equipment for specific uses. In general, these tactical medical kits are designed for use in ventilation, intubation, oxygen administration, wound care, diagnostics or infusions and injections.
First Aid Kits - Ideal for Helpers on Site
First aid kits are meant for use in companies and facilities. They provide first aiders with the necessary equipment to help patients until the ambulance or emergency medical services (EMS) arrive. Since first aid boxes are generally used by laypersons, their contents differ from professional bags. According to DIN 13157 and 13169, they mostly contain an assortment of bandages and dressing materials for wound management, gloves, bandage scissors and instructions for providing first aid.
