First Aid Kits

Canoeing.com Definition: The size and scope of a camping first aid kit should be determined by group size, trip duration and distance from help. A basic kit should help you stop bleeding, treat blisters, wounds and burns, manage pain, and stabilize sprains. It should also include items like tweezers, scissors, protective gloves, and mouth guards. For extended trips, consider kits that include extras of all the basics, thermometers, prescription medications or even suture kits. A good kit will include a manual, but a kit and trip should be commensurate with first aid training. Consider taking a first aid course so you can use your kit properly.
