First aid

Patient : I would like some advice on items that may be appropriate or life saving for a disaster first aid case. Items that maybe a doctor or paramedic would find invaluable. Possibly for trauma, infection control, or broken limbs. Any advice would be much appreciated. Scenario such as no access to ED services due to hunting or hiking or Hurricane Katrina. How to provide basic aid until ED services can be provided
