Hi everybody! Over the last little while due to training and recent events, I thought it important to add to my first aid kit whenever I get the chance. Never know when it might come in handy in an area where there aren't any doctors or nurses around. What's in your kit? Do you have any recommendations for mine? This is what I currently have going on:

 

Equipment

 

Standard First Aid With Heat Blanket, Small Tools and Bandages

Hydrogen Peroxide & Denatured Alcohol

Larger Gauze Rolls and Pads

Tenser Bandage Rolls

Gloves

Tourniquets

Breathing Mask & Balloon

AED 

Ten 3mL retractable injector (short tip)

Ten 3mL retractable injector (long tip)

 

Drugs

 

Vitamin & Mineral Powder Packets

Polysporin

Tylenol

Aspirin

Advil

Antihistamines

Gravol

Pepto

Hydrocodone Syrup

Lidocaine

Benzodiazepines (Lorazepam, Clonazepam) 

Epinephrine

Naloxone

Lol, all jokes aside, both of these would be extremely useful. I did have an old ceramic or carbon water pump for camping but I have no idea where it went. Used to use liquid iodine and bleach to clean the water when I was younger. Didn't want to mess up the measurements on those!

How do you just have the hydrocodone syzzyrup hanging out in your first aid kit though?

I'm not even into drugs, especially opiates and what not as they are bad news bears

But hydrocodone syrup is good stuff. If i'm prescribed it I am definitely going to polish it off within a few days, there is no sticking it in my first aid kit for a rainy day
but i dont actually have a first aid kit, just a medicine cabinet with a thermometer amd some ibuprofen

"Burn Jel" for fast relief of minor burns from fire.

Instant cold/ice packs, the ones you squeeze and break, about 15 minutes of cold in case of injury/swelling.

You need superglue in that first aid kit. Believe it or not, the stuff was originally invented for surgeons explaining why hospitals spend so much time ungluing people's hands in the emergency room. A friend of mine is an auto mechanic and soaks his hands in hydrogen peroxide every night and uses superglue to seal any bad cuts. If he had to go get stitches every time he'd never get any work done.

 

The military now has some sort of powder they can throw on any wound that will stop a person from bleeding to death which is responsible for saving countless lives even when a person looses a limb or whatever, but I don't know where you can buy that stuff or even what its called. Superglue is a good alternative for at least being able to temporarily close any horrific wounds.

This is true, and there are specific glues and powders that can be easily obtained for at-home or personal emergency med kits.
