Background and Aim: Manpower and their protection in war zones have special significance, and the lack of preservation of soldiers may lead to major changes in the outcome of the war. Due to the necessity to save lives, and to reduce human casualties caused by war wounds, it is necessary to provide self-aid facilities to soldiers before the medical team arrives. This can prevent aggravation of injuries and save lives. The main purpose of designing a self-aid bag is so soldiers can take immediate action toprotect their lives.
Methods: This is a descriptive study using a hybrid analysis. For data collection, thematic literature was used, as well as the experiences of the research team. Modeling was performed and then the opinions of the experts collected using a questionnaire, and self-aid bag was designed.
Results: Based on the results of expert opinion, the new designed self-aid bag includes: a transmitter and receiver with the ability to encode data and send to support, a fentanyl patch (for skin absorption) to provide strong analgesia, a composite splint, anti-hemorrhage powder, a sterile eye pad dressing, a tourniquet, a rubber band, sterile gas, scissors, burn cream, sticking plasters, a triangular band, band types, chlorine pills and first aid blankets. The contents of the designed bag are packed and then vacuumed. The overall weight of the bag is 950 grams.
Conclusion: This self-aid bag has been designed to be of an appropriate weight and made using durable material that is resistant to water and fire. Proper placement on the body level, and the selected contents, mean that this bag could provide a practical option for first aid in the field.
