For this lesson we are going to build a first aid kit or FAK. Let's start out small, and make a kit that is small enough to carry in a purse or the smallest pocket of a day pack. In this lesson we are going to make up a small kit that simply addresses your needs during a normal day. Obviously, the FAK of a construction worker will not be the same as the FAK of an office worker. You will need to assess your personal situation and adjust this as needed. Let me give you a good list to start with. Bandage Materials (4) Bandage, Adhesive, Fabric, 1" x 3" (1) Bandage, Adhesive, Fabric, Knuckle (2) Bandage, Butterfly Closure Blister / Burn (1) GlacierGel >(Large Oval) (11) Moleskin, Pre-Cut & Shaped (11 pieces) Instrument (2) Safety Pins Medication (2) Acetaminophen (500 mg), Pkg./2 (2) Antacid, Pkg./2 (2) Antihistamine (Diphenhydramine 25 mg) (2) Diamode (Loperamide HCI 2 mg), Pkg./1 (2) Diotame (Bismuth Subsalicylate), Pkg./2 (2) Ibuprofen (200 mg), Pkg./2 Other (2) Wash-Up Towelette Wound Care (3) After Cuts & Scrapes Antiseptic Wipe (3) Alcohol Swab (1) Triple Antibiotic Ointment, Single Use Buying an already made first aid kit to start with is ok for this lesson, but if you do that there needs to be an additional step in this process. Go through each of the items and figure out what they are for. After you have looked at each item individually, consider what you do every day and add or delete items from the kit that you could possibly need or not ever need. In the Student Practice portion of this lesson I want to see a list of the contents of your FAK, a brief description of why they are included and a picture of the kit put together. Student practice thread can be found here. For extra credit on this lesson, take an approved CPR/first aid class.
