Making a first aid kit

Here are a lot of things to keep in mind when making a first aid kit.  Who is it for?  Where are you going to keep it?  Why do I want it?  All these questions are easily answered.  The first thing to think about it where you are going to keep the kit.  It will be different if it is for your home, car, or office.  However, something to remember no matter where you keep it that it needs to be kept simple and basic.  All you need is a bunch of items in the kit that you don’t know what they are during a stressful situation.  
Some ideas for a first aid kit is sterile gauze pads, band-aids, non-latex gloves different sizes, dependant upon who could use it,  best to keep all sizes or a couple sets of a larger size , antibiotic, hydrocortisone cream, a breathing barrier (for CPR), and a reference card.  The card should have emergency numbers  burn control, poison control, EMS, family members .
 
You can build a first aid kit specified for your needs.  The suggestions listed above would be best for a smaller kit that you could carry around, however if you want a large kit add in a flashlight which extra batteries , a blanket, scissors, thermometer, hot/cold pack  two different packs, you break and they heat or cool , and elastic wraps.  Basically, you can put whatever you want in a first-aid kit.  Just make sure if you have medications, etc.  in it you restock it and check it regularly.  You need to check the dates to be sure that there are not expired materials in the kit.
