Response Bags For Every Situation

When responding to a medical emergency, it is vital that all of the necessary equipment is easily accessible in order to be able to deliver effective treatment. Without somewhere to put all your medical supplies, you may end up wasting time trying to find the equipment you need. Organisation is crucial and if you’re not organised, you won’t be as effective as you could or should be.

Here at DS Medical, we stock bags and pouches made only by brands that we trust completely, such as 5.11 Tactical, Thomas, StatPacks and our very own range of DS Medical bags and pouches.


What to consider?

There are a few things to think about when it comes to choosing the right bag for you. One of the most important things to consider is size – you should evaluate your needs to help decide which size bag is suitable.

It’s a good idea to keep your items grouped based on what it is used for (e.g. airway management, catastrophic bleeding, diagnostics, etc) as every medical bag will be different – it has to suit you and your needs specifically. Depending on your individual requirements, it is important to take into account the material it is made from, its overall durability and the practicality of carrying the bag.

It can be a little overwhelming trying to work out which bag is best suited so why not give our team a call today on 01329 311451. We’d be happy to go through and help you choose the right bag!
