Do you carry a first aid kit on your boat, in your airplane or in your car? One of the things that has always driven me crazy about the commercial first aid kits that you find in drugstores and pilot supply catalogs is that they're filled with all sorts of stuff that is totally useless ... and sometimes even harmful. Over the years, I have assembled my own traveling medical kit for dealing with away-from-home emergencies, based on my long experience as an emergency room doc, frequent traveler, pilot, outdoorsman, and dad. Now you can buy a kit of your own substantially identical to the one I carry when I travel.

Kit contents

Most first aid kits contain too much special-purpose stuff and not enough multi-purpose stuff. When weight and space are at a premium, it's essential to choose medications and other items which can be used to deal with multiple problems. For instance, antibiotic eye drops can be used in the ear, but eardrops cannot be used in the eye.

Read my detailed write-up that explains exactly what I carry in my medical kit, why I selected each item, how it should be used, and why the way it's packaged is so important.

Dr. Blue's Med Kit being WornOrdinary first aid kits are packaged in a plastic or metal hinged-lid box that requires the user to dump most or all of the contents out to find a needed item. This makes the kits difficult to use, which in turn causes people to avoid using them in anything but the most dire emergency. If you carry a first aid kit in your car or airplane or boat or backpack, think about when the last time was that you actually opened the kit and made use of the contents. For most people, the answer is "a long time ago" or "never."

Dr. Blue's medical kit is designed to be useful and user-friendly, not a "break glass in case of emergency" affair. It cuts out all the junk and contains a host of useful items, most of which can be used for a multitude of purposes. At $333, it's not cheap, but it includes stuff you are most likely to actually need. I have included the best and most useful items available, packaged in a fashion that makes the kit truly useful. (If you tried to duplicate this kit on your own, you'd spend well over $500.)
