     Israeli Pressure Bandage:  This is appropriate for an arm, leg, ankle, foot, wrist, or hand.  It is designed, once fixed in place, to provide content and firm pressure directly to a wound, and mold itself to the wound.  This will stop ¾ of hit points being lost from bleeding.

 

     ITS Tactical ETA: This set was put together by an 18D (Special Forces Medic). And is designed to tread the line between not enough and too much.  It is meant to be a light bag for assistant medics and combat lifesavers.  The bag is small and holds a two-pack Combat Dressing, a pack of “Combat Gauze” – a standard pressure bandage impregnated with the material in QuikClot, used to not only apply pressure to wounds, but to quickly promote clotting.  A third type bandage has an outer surface of hook-and-loop fasteners (Velcro).  The Halo bandage is large, oval in shape, and 225 millimeters wide.  It has a sticky back, and comes in a three-pack.  It is designed to seal wounds like sucking chest wounds and abdominal wounds.  A standard ACE-type bandage, 200 millimeters wide and 20 meters long, with clips, is included for GP uses.

     Tranq Autoinjectors: Similar to the atropine autoinjectors described in Twilight:2000 but loaded with a fast-acting tranquilizer drug, these devices were originally made for use by mental hospitals and police, but the merc and military trade soon adopted them.  When applying one to an unresisting target (one surprised or subdued by unarmed combat), the user may choose the body part the injector is used on. Resisting targets must be subdued using unarmed combat before the injector can be applied.

     As with tranq darts, a hit in any part of the body will be effective eventually, but some areas give faster results than others. Head hits result in instant unconsciousness. Chest and abdomen hits result in unconsciousness after 1D6~2 phases five to 15 seconds).  An arm hit requires the target to roll his Constitution or less on 1D10 to stay awake each phase. The drug will take effect even if the injector is removed immediately. Tranq autoinjectors also affect dogs in the same way as tranq darts.  Wt:0.1 kg per set of three.  Price: $75 per set of three (R/R)

Wt 2kg; Price $1000 (S/S)
