I didn't even realize this was a BB! Woohoo, this should be a fun one, and I already have everything I need!

I've got a pretty extensive collection of medical supplies: most of them are just basic stuff like cold meds, pain killers, tummy stuff, but I have a pretty good stock of more traditional First Aid supplies. I also have a little kit made up so my family can just grab it and bring me what I need.

I needed to replace some expired stuff, so took some pictures to fulfill my BB!
Here's what's in the First Aid "Go Kit"

Ammonia Inhalants
Iodine prep swabs
Alcohol-based cleaning swabs
Alcohol-free sterowipes
Sterile Eye Wash
Epi-pen
Assorted sterile gauze
Sterile eye pad
3 Triangle bandages and saftey pins
2 Rolls of gauze tape (small and large)
1 Roll non-sterile gauze wrap
Paracetamol
Assorted bandaids
Anti-itch stick
Gloves
4 Sterile suture kits
Sterile wound glue (Mastisol, suture alternative)
Sterile #15 blades
Blade handle
Locking Forceps
Assorted tweezers
Nail Trimmer
Sterile punch tool
Blunt-tip scissors
Tourniquet

My old Lifeguarding pouch contains my CPR mask and one-way valve, and is always buckled to the Go Kit.

I've had training on how to use all of my tools, including the suture kits (worked in a clinic and assisted with minor inpatient surgical procedures).
There are more specialized tools in my general supplies, but they aren't needed as often so they stay in the big drawer.

The smaller kit is my trauma kit and the larger one is my home's main first aid kit.


The trauma kit is in good shape.  Chest seals, z-clot bandages, CAT tourniquet, and tons of other stuff all neatly arranged so I know exactly where it is.  I even put cute little reflectors on it.


This one is a nightmare. Disorganized.  Multiples of stuff I don't want and missing stuff I do.  



So here's the list:


Here's the purchased resupply.  I also cleaned it, organized it, and put things in labeled boxes or clear bags.



Here's the refurbished kit:

We had a bunch of medical supplies in a cardboard box,  but I managed to get ahold of an old empty first aid kit bag, so packed the most used items into it.  Not sure if that counts as a resupply or a creation. Either way it works.

Kit bag
Emergency info sheets
Space blanket
Emergency hydration
Scissors
Tweezers
Pepto
Allergy pills
Salve
Peppermint oil
Bergamot/eucalyptus/mint muscle rub
Antibiotic cream
Cortisone
Tinactin
Orajel
Alcohol swabs
Gauze pads
Cotton swabs
Various sizes of bandaids

Here is my submission for the Homesteading - Sand - Restock First Aid Kit BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
  - a before picture of the supplies to create your first aid kit (or of the current status of a first aid kit
  - a list of the supplies in the first aid kit being created (or a list of supplies in stock and out of stock in the first aid kit
  - an after picture of the completed first aid kit you made (or of the newly restocked first aid kit

Since I recently purchased a new car, I thought it would be a good idea to go through the first aid kit and refresh/restock.
A while back, the company my sister works for replaced all their first aid kits and she brought home the 1/2 stocked kits.  We restocked two (one for each of our cars) and kept the empty kits/bags.  This time I decided to add "pages" to my kit and improve the organization while restocking.

In Stock:
a small assortment of bandaids and gauze pads
1 small roll of gauze and tape
Expired medications - removed
1 pair exam gloves
alcohol wipes
antiseptic wipes (sting-free)
1 pk moleskin
Sterile Eye Pad Gauze
1 pk sterile gauze
scissors
tweezers
sunscreen (1 pk)
1 cold pack


Out of Stock/Added:
adhesive tape
vet wrap
more bandaids, gauze pads, gauze (roll), adhesive tape
2 more cold packs
Emergency/Survival Blanket
more exam gloves in individual Ziplocs to keep clean(ish)
hot packs - hand/feet warmers
Sterile saline for contacts or eye rinse
castile soap wipes
sting stop wipes
more and different antiseptic towelettes
hypergel packs for washing out wounds
more moleskin
replaced medications

Is this more the style post youre looking for My?

My family and I updated our 72 hour kits. Most of the packs (there are 7 of us, so 7 packs) had been made by me a couple years ago. One was a factory, made kit, so peeked inside the first aid kit. It definitely needed to be restocked to fit our family's medical needs.

In stock:
2 gauze pads
9 plain bandaids
Cue tips,
Cold pack,
Exam gloves,
Tweezers,
Garbage bags,
Med scissors,
Tongue depression,
Basic guide,
13 Alcohol pads

Expired:
Acetaminophen packets,
Burn cream,
Blister packet,
Electrolyte mix,
Antacid packet,
Insect bite relief,
Antibiotic cream

Replaced with:
Tylenol bottle,
Benedryl tablets,
Peppermint essential oil (e.o.)
Lemongrass e.o.
Lavender e.o.
Tea tree e.o.
Yarrow e.o.
Wintergreen e.o.
Helichrysm e.o.
Carrier oil

Also added to stock:
11 fingertip and butterfly bandaids,
1 roll of gauze,
1 ace bandage
1 roll of medical tape,
1 container of water purification tabs,
1 bandana (for a turnicut)

Now I feel pretty darn confident about being able to field-manage any small injuries!!

When hunting season arrived I upgraded my basic first aid kit that I carry into the woods every day.

It includes ...
peanut butter jar container wrapped with 10-15 feet of duct tape
gloves with alcohol pads stored inside
medical tape wrapped in foil
mirrors from a make up compact
tube of antibiotic goop
a few acetiminophen & diphenhydramine tablets
a couple packs of Celox granules (blood clotting agent)
alcohol pads
cotton balls
gauze roll
band aids
several sizes of gauze pads
a small bison tube for keeping pills waterproof if needed
super glue
lighter
chap stick
anti-germ wipes

I also carry a snake bite & sting kit that includes ...
sting relief pads
alcohol pads
bandages
a suction syringe (hickey from hell)
razor

The CS pic includes the recent additions ...
a larger container
alcohol
hydrogen peroxide
the repacked peanut butter jar ready to be wrapped in it's red bandana
sting/bite kit
several more pairs of gloves
feminine hygiene pads
several sizes of antibacterial gauze pads
Quick Clot infused gauze
scissors
wide waterproof tape
super bright headlamp
butterfly closures
petroleum jelly
cayenne pepper (last resort)

The last pic shows everything ready to go back into the backpack. I have other tools & supplies in there that aren't technically medical items but could be used to improvise. Splint, tourniquet, stretcher, sling, hypothermia, chest seals, tracheotomy, amputations, etc. Let's hope a medivac arrives first!

Here's a couple of trusted medical supply places.

Here is a spare hard case I had from hunting. I figured it would make a nice medical kit.

Here are a list of the items used to create the kit:

1) 1x tube of Neosporin
2) 1x tourniquet
3) 2x knock Emergen-C like vitamin c packets
4) Roughly 75x Advil liquid gels (I used a previously open one because I just bought a new bottle)
5) 2x alberterol sulfate capsules. My step son has asthma so having these is critical to using his nebulizer.
6) 1x casualty assistance card
7) 2x crinkle gauze
1x 4 inch trauma dressing roll
9) 1x elastic bandage roll
10) 1x nasopharyngeal airway
11) 1x asherman chest seal
12) 1x roll of medical tape
13) 1x moxifloxacin tablet
14) 1x meloxicam tablet
15) 1x acetaminophen tablet

This kit mainly goes on my “gun fighting” belt, but also goes with me on hikes.

Ingredients:
Compact tear-off med kit from Special Operations Equipment.
Chem light
Whistle
Gloves
Recon Medical tourniquet
Shears
Chest seal
Duct tape
Emergency space blanket: These are much stronger than you’d think. I have used them as a stretcher in training and seen people dragged across a field without tearing. Also great for treating hypothermia and shock.
Olaes hemostatic bandage: from TacMed Solutions. These are a great multi function bandage. The non-hemostatic version is very inexpensive. Link to what I have https://tacmedsolutions.com/collections/medical-supplies/products/olaes-hemostatic-bandage

I've had a medicine box since shortly after moving out of my childhood home, but used an old comestic box. I've upgraded it to an actual first aid kit so in an emergency people can quickly find it. In my old box I had:

 Plasters
 Rubber gloves
 Eye drops
 Hand sanitiser
 Anti-septic cream
 Hayfever tablets
 Cold relief tablets
 Vaseline
 Nurofen
 Codeine
 Sun cream

I added paracetamol and ibuprofen which can be seen in the pockets on the left. I'm always running out of these as I usually carry them in my work bag. I've put these two in here so I never run out at home.

Good day!  I was motivated to get a proper first aid kit after my false sense of security was shattered by an injury that sent me to the ER for seven staples and $1k bill.  If you want pictures of the wound I'd be glad to post them as a cautionary tale, but I felt it unnecessary for the BB.  

Previously there was no first aid kit in the house other than a few miscellaneous bandages, gauze, alcohol prep pads and hydrogen peroxide.  After the costly accident, I purchased this first aid kit and added a suture staple gun and an Epipen.  When I took stock of the kit I noticed that ammonia smelling salts were on the packing list, but not included in the kit.  I ordered some and replaced what was not included initially.

My car first aid kit needed refreshing. Some of the items were from ten years ago and some were plain missing, like pain reliever.

I took inventory, pulled some things from the house stock (only if there were extra, not to deplete the house inventory), and went to the store for the rest.

I also stocked some children’s ibuprofen as I am usually traveling with children and they can’t use the adult medication.

My kit has a couple extra items like a headlamp and whistle, but I figured they can’t hurt to have.

I'm around enough kids that having bandaids on hand is a life saver and have gotten tired of digging them out of the trash at the bottom of my bag. I have a few other first aid supplies in my bag: tobacco for bug bites, pliers and tape. I didn't add much beond boo-boo suplies because I don't need to be doing surgery on somebody else's kid.

Edge case submission
We recently bought a new vehicle, which did not have a first aid kit in it. So we thought that it would be a good idea to make one from scratch and put it in the van.

here is the list of supplies that we constructed the first aid kit out of.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - you must create or restock a first aid kit (that needs restocking)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
  - a before picture of the supplies to create your first aid kit (or of the current status of a first aid kit)
  - a list of the supplies in the first aid kit being created (or a list of supplies in stock and out of stock in the first aid kit)
  - an after picture of the completed first aid kit you made (or of the newly restocked first aid kit)

The majority of our healthcare/1st aid needs have been stocked in our bathroom medicine cabinet and our portable first aid kits have fell to the wayside for about four years. I finally cracked the two kits opened and felt they were pretty lacking. We had partial kits in our cars, random extra bits and bobs in the house, plus things I purchased to restock. I got both kits organized and restocked so if something were to happen we can grab them and go.

*Edit*

I sometimes forget my chicken scratch is an acquired taste for the eyes. Oops!

I didn’t think we needed another first aid kit… until my husband told me that the first aid at his work (a mechanic shop) is very poorly stocked.

(His bosses, when asked things like, “Can we have more alcohol prep pads in the kit? There aren’t any left” or “Can we have some updated bandaids that aren’t from 1994 and are actually sticky?” say, “But we have a whole bottle of alcohol in the office!” and “That kit predates us. We’re not going to buy more bandaids because we don’t want you taking them home with you.” Sigh.)

Anyway…
