Combat lifesaver aid bag ... the mystery of the missing items.
* diazepam injection, syringe with needle, NSN 6505-01-274-0951
* atropine injection, syringe with needle, NSN 6505-00-926-9083
Diazepam is a controlled substance and it's not issued with the bag. But it is an item needed for deployment or a training exercise.
Atropine is not a controlled substance. The combat lifesaver aid bag is typically issued with atropine. But in some cases, the atropine gets removed somewhere in the supply channel before the bag reaches the combat lifesaver.
Diazepam and atropine are used to offset the effects of chemical agents.
So if you're short either diazepam or atropine, submit a requisition to your medical supply people.
Looking for material safety data sheets (MSDS)? Here are three websites to get you started. The first one is the official DoD website for MSDS.
