Question What Should Be in Your First Aid/Emergency Kit

We had a fun discussion a couple of years ago about a tool kit for the PT. But what about a first aid/emergency kit?

Here's what I'm carrying. Most of this is in my gym bag but that stays in my car all the time. And I've used just about all of this at one time or another in a medical situation. What do you carry?

roll of gauze
roll of medical tape
cotton balls
band aids
extra Epipen (if needed)
box of assorted band aids.
Solarcaine (small bottle)
antiseptic/antibiotic cream (small tube)
hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Cream
hydrocodone (at least three pills)
FloMax (hydro and FlowMax may get you throw a kidney stone)
Tylenol
Benadryl
sun screen
anti-fungal foot spray
scissors
knife
tweezers
butterfly sutures
Dermabond
Toilet Paper
parachute chord
machete

I think I have some kleenex in the glove box, if not I have some car towels in the back.

Yep.

And I've found that when you have to quickly pull to the side of the road and run for the bushes, the blue shop towels work a little better anyway.

This seems to works better for us with many things?

Our travel FIRST AID BAG:

It really is simpler and more cost effective to invest in a complete well supplied FIRST AID BAG.

You can always add personal preference items.

We (my Nurse wife and myself) go through this bag every 6 months and keep everything updated.

I should have thought of that. There's nothing that moonshine and a roll of duct tape won't cure.

Brings back memories of my youth when my brother would hurl the car to the side of the road and furiously point in the direction of the 'SNIPE' that he spotted out in the brush. You know, I never did catch up to one of those suckers. They're notoriously elusive little suckers. To this day, when I'm driving out in the country side, I keep one eye on the road and the other scanning the woods on the roadside.

If I could just find one, I'd give him 'what-for'.
