I was reading the thread about what people keep in their cars for emergencies. My thought is basically 'who cares' as an ambulance is generally right around the corner. However, I have often thought about what to take when backpacking. Is it ridiculous to take a couple ET tubes (assuming you know how to use them) in your pack? It would suck to try and bag someone for hours but it would suck worse to watch someone's airway close miles from help. On the other hand, if you need a tube way out there, isn't it kinda too late for crazy interventions? Just wondering what people thought.
