I am a member of a foxhunting club--horses, red jackets, hounds...you get the picture. It can be pretty rough and at least once a year somone in the club is involved in some major trauma. We ride pretty fast and hard across country, over fences, etc. The injuries I have seen involve either mostly minor lacerations Such as to the face from riding through the woods and a branch or a vine will snag your face or exposed skin, sometimes an eye. Concussions from being thrown (Been there done that...don't remember most of it) And the most common is broken bones...collarbones, fingers, ribs (from falling or having the horse roll on you if it falls) and of course broken limbs. Last year a fellow was kicked by another rider's horse below the knee and it shattered his lower leg bone and knee. Last month I watched a horse loose its footing going over a fence, go head over heels on top of his rider...concussion and broken ribs. About every three years or so somebody gets hurt bad enough to call in the chopper... The good news is we have several MDs that regularly ride with the club. Bad news is none is a trauma/ER doc. We have a Orthopod, a General Prac. a Cardiac Surgeon, a Podiatrist (Is that a real doctor? ;f ) and a radiologist. We also don't have a good first aid kit. Obviously this isn't something that can be carried with us on the horse. But something our dog handler can keep in the 4WD hound truck and be brought forward on short notice with a call on a Walkie Talkie. So based on that information can you give me some help putting together some basic supplies and instruments keeping in mind that we do have real MDs with us. Size isn't too vital since it will be in a truck. We expect to spend perhaps $300 but cost isn't a primary consideration. I'll proably use a Pelican type hard case since this thing will be kept under hard conditions in all kinds of weather with lots of dust/mud etc. (think farm truck) Also be mindful that this will almost always be in a remote rural location and in most instances getting a "meat wagon" close to the injured person will not be practical and he most often is initially moved in the back of a 4WD pick-up. So getting him stablized for such transport is a concern. Obviously serious neck/back injuries will almost always be a chopper ride. Thanks and Tallyho!
