COLOR: Desert Camouflage
Water resistant nylon; nylon webbing straps with snaps that attach to MOLLE vests. For many years the first aid kit carried by individual soldiers was the Carlisle Dressing or Battle Dressing, little more than a bandage with which to attempt to stop bleeding. In 2005 the U.S.. Army standardized the Improved First Aid Kit (IFAK), which, in conjunction with proper training, will greatly increase force effectiveness by increasing the potential of survival for combat casualties. Specifically, the kit provides enhanced capabilities for Self-Aid/Buddy-Aid to immediately treat the two most urgent medical crises faced by battlefield casualties:
• Exsanguinations (bleeding) from an extremity wound
• Airway occlusion
The IFAK, Improved First Aid Kit began reaching soldiers in the field in late 2005 and early 2006.
