First Aid Kit Tips


Recommended Posts

I was putting together a first aid kit and my dad-in-law, a retired Navy medic, suggested the inclusion of maxi pads. He pointed out that they have great absorbency and would help staunch blood flow. I thought this was rather clever.


So, I was wondering if you folks had any first aid kit suggestions that you'd like to share?

If you don't have smelling salts in your kit (and you find that you need one), pull out the AfterBite. It's ammonia.


A quick side note related to your maxi pads --


I was in Los Angeles for a conference. On the way back to the airport we had to evacuate the bus since it was leaking fuel. I looked at the fuel tank to find a perfectly round hole in it (looked like a bullet hole to me). Fuel was pouring out. My first thought was "a tampon would probably stop the flow".
