Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on September 5, 2018
There's a lot of the same items in this. Mine contained mainly alcohol wipes and bandaids. It's a mess too. You should be able to find things quickly and easily in an emergency. The American Red Cross recommends kits for a family of four include the following:

- 2 absorbent compress dressings (5 x 9 inches)
- 25 adhesive bandages (assorted sizes)
- 1 adhesive cloth tape (10 yards x 1 inch)
- 5 antibiotic ointment packets (approximately 1 gram)
- 5 antiseptic wipe packets
- 2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)
- 1 blanket (space blanket)
- 1 pocket mask/breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
- 1 instant cold compress
- 2 pair of non-latex gloves (size: large)
- 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets (approximately 1 gram each)
- Scissors
- 1 roller bandage (3 inches wide)
- 1 roller bandage (4 inches wide)
- 5 sterile gauze pads (3 x 3 inches)
- 5 sterile gauze pads (4 x 4 inches)
- Oral thermometer (digital)
- 2 triangular bandages
- Tweezers
- First aid instruction booklet (Read it before you need it!)

My Own Suggestions (add to kit):

- Sterile gloves!
- Some 6" long pre-cut strips of standard kinesiology tape to reduce pain and swelling.
- Antihistamine (Benadryl)
- Injectable epinephrine and/or Asthma inhaler if you require them
- Diarrhea medication (Imodium)
- Anti-nausea medication (Dramamine)
- Emergency contact numbers
- Current list of medications and allergies
- Hemostatic (blood-stopping) gauze
- Liquid bandage
- Sunburn relief gel or spray
- Lubricating eye drops/wash
- Q-tips
- Discuss with your physician first so if you're drug tested at work you have medical documentation... Medical marijuana (CBD) if it's legal in your state. It's legal in some states where THC is not because CBD is not psychoactive. An Indica strain with 25% CBD can do a lot for pain without leaving you addicted to pain killers. Matches and a joint protection tubule should be fine.
