Most First Aid Kits serve two purposes: To treat simple injuries or to help you stabilize an injury in order to get yourself or the person you are treating to a more professional medical setting.

In a survival situation, however, the “and go” part of the equation might not be available, or be overwhelmed, or be very hard to access.
