How EMTs Choose the Right Bag for Their Supplies The first thing EMTs have to consider when choosing a bag is the environment. If they are doing search and rescue or in an area with a lot of debris, they will likely use a backpack instead of a duffle bag. The other consideration is what equipment they need to carry. Items such as AEDs have specialized carrying cases, while bulky items such as cervical collars will need a larger duffle bag. If the EMT only needs general use first aid equipment such as bandages, tourniquets, etc. then their bag use is up to personal preference.
What Items Do Paramedics Normally Carry in Their Backpacks?
Paramedics carry: 1. Diagnostic tools such as a thermometer, blood pressure monitor, and stethoscope. 2. Life-saving devices such as tourniquets, and chest seals. 3. Personal protective equipment, such as gloves, surgical and cpr masks. 4. Basic first aid supplies such as bandages, antiseptics, gauze, and medical tape.
