Feminine Pads are very useful in first aid kits and I suggest people carry them in their kits. (And I don't mean for when Aunt Flow makes a suprise visit, Ladies!)
Pads are a great way to keep gaping and gushing wounds clean and safe. If you are bleeding from a wound, you need to cover it and keep blood loss at a low. And if you are treating someone else, you don't want to get their blood on you. So instead of using that little roll of gauze which will soak up all that blood in a matter of seconds, you use the pad. (I am SO not joking.) Since I am a teacher, I am First Aid trained and have certification in Blood-borne illness training as well. They say pads do a great job of keeping a wound clean, prevents major blood loss, absorbs blood and is lined inthe back with plastic (keeping you safe.)

yeah pads are great for big wounds. We camp at this remote beach we call the "secret beach" well its a 15-20 min hike there and its very rugged. Lots of limestone, sharp jagged rocks because its on a cliff right. well one time my friend decided to make a fashionably late entrance. Armed on with the light of his cell fone he decided to make the trek with another friend. well he fuked up and fell down a ledge and messed up his fore arm right above his elbow. Huge gash and lots and lots of blood. Used a pad and he was good to go. I belive he had stiches inside and outside.
