A plane ticket out of where ever you're stuck at. :D

A small knife can come in handy with first aid for removing things from a wound, cutting bandages that the scissors have problems with, etc.

You've got a good list, is this your first aid cabinet supply list?

If you'll give us some details about the situation or place you think this case would be used in, we can give you more suggestions.

Hydrogen Peroxide (3% or stronger) I love this stuff! I do alot of vet first aid and when used with an irrigator syringe it can kill the bacteria inside a puncture wound. It is not too painful to use and does a good job. It has even worked on my toe nail fungus (cut away dead nail and use toothbrush dipped in HP). Buy the 16 oz bottles as when opened it will start to degrade. I do not know what the shelf life of HP is.

How about .......

Hey 411man ... you know, that is hard to say ... how bout if I give you a nickname ... Wingman ... they provide the cover for the primary shooter flying point... please don't take offense ... I'm just playing around, but I did think of a couple of things. First and foremost, if you read the thread I did on sutures, you should know that is my first suggestion. Having had to use them twice in a week and a half convinced me! Here is what I could think of:

Sutures ... and quite a few
Skin Crack Cream > Nexcare makes a really good one
Linament > Absorbine Horse Linament is a lot stronger than the human stuff or something for sore or strained muscles
Mineral Ice > Something we also used with the horses, but they make a people version as well. It is puts cold into sprained tendons, etc.
Boric Acid > or some eye irrigation
Murine
Creamy Vaseline > You can add all kinds of essential oils to make whatever you need, plus you can start a fire with it, use it to moisturize chapped skin, etc.
Radiation Pills > I like the KIO3 cause they work for kids and pets too!
Sweet Almond Oil > for earaches
Blistex > Probably the best thing I have found for chapped lips, plus you can mix it into a little hand cream, if you have extremely chapped hands.
Vitamin E Oil or Caps > great for skin that has been damaged
Space Blankets > Very lightweight, but great if someone is going into shock
Candles > Just in case it is night
Lighters > I keep a couple of lighters in my pack, for starting fires and sterilizing a knife if time is of the essence.
Mole Skin > For those blisters you get on your feet from all the walking or from that strap on your pack.
Plastic Gloves
Scalpels > Disposable
Tissue Adhesive > 3M Vetbond - used to glue skin back together after a cut.
Hemo Clot Gel > Used to stop bleeding on minor cuts your pet gets, but it should work on people too.
*****The Tissue Adhesive, Scalpels and Hemo Clot Gel can be purchased at
http://www.lambriarvetsupply.com along with good prices on gauze rolls, etc.
Dental Floss > Have you ever had something stuck in your teeth ... makes you absolutely crazy!
Lense Cloths in the packets to clean glasses
Hydrocortisone Cream for itches
Emery Board ... I have filed sharp edges off a broken tooth until I could get to the dentist.
Couple of Emergency Water Packets > To clean cuts, wash hands, hydration
Mini Flashlight
Preperation H ?????
Ipecac Syrup > In case you have to induce vomiting
Ammonia Inhalents
Hand Sanitizer
Nail Clippers
Benadryl > for allergic reactions or Epi-pen shot
Halls/Chloraceptic Lozenges > for sore throat
Anbesol Gel or Clove Oil for tooth ache
Para Cord > in case you have to make a splint, tourniquet
Irrigation Syringe
Sewing Needles > in case you have to dig out a splinter
Clean Towel
General Purpose Antibiotic > for internal use

Something else I found out while doing the suturing ... we went through a lot more of the gauze pads and bandaids than I thought we would for just one of the episodes, so you might want to rethink what you have on hand. I thought we had plenty until that happened. Your supply depleates really fast.

I just added Adolphs Meat tenderizer to my med bag.
I'm going to the coast tomorrow, and I just read where the MOW's are showing up in the surf.
