Where do you buy those pocket CPR barriers?

    I got a buddy who carries ever since he did unprotected CPR, (brought a guy back after a fall on a construction site). The resulting period of AIDS/Hep. testing and "lack of consortium" made him decide it was worth it to carry a shield.

    He also carries a surefire and a leatherman. All the garbage on his belt is kind of unsightly. I do a little leather work so for christmas I wanted to make him a holder for all that stuff but I need a shield to know how to design it into the package.

    I'd try the corner drug store.

    I carry one of the microshields in my first aid kit but it seems kind of flimsy. Anyone had any problems using one?

    The Laerdal pocket masks seem to work the best if you dont carry a Bag Valve Mask in your car. If you buy them through a supplier like Galls, they run about $18. But, if you have a Red Cross office anywhere in your area, you can purchase the same mask's for about $8, the only difference is that they have a red cross on the outside of the container they come in.
