A first-aid kit should be collected by one of the members of the tourist group who have experience and complete data on all members of the group. It is impossible to foresee all the nuances, but the consequences can be minimized if certain rules are observed when collecting the first-aid kit.

We should start with this, because during a hike there is a chance not only to get wet in the rain, but also to drop a backpack into a stream or river, or simply from a great height. These incidents can cause the contents of the kit to get wet, break, crumble, and become unusable. So before you pack up your first-aid kit, pay attention to the packaging.
You can buy in the store ready, but you should choose, remembering that it must meet the following requirements:
- Reliable lock.
- Dampers or rubber gaskets on the body.
- Convenience for manual carrying.
- Bright recognizable marking.
These items are required. It is desirable that inside the first-aid kit of the tourist was divided into several sections and had special holders for drugs in special packaging.
After the package itself is purchased, the most crucial moment comes: to figure out what should be in the first-aid kit and staff it so that it does not interfere in a normal situation and becomes a universal helper in an extreme situation associated with any deterioration in health.
There is nothing to explain here. A campfire on a camping trip is not just a means for heating or cooking – it is a ritual. But he has the ability to burn his fingers, palms and other parts of the body. So, anti-burn remedies, for example, Pentanol in the form of an ointment, spray or gel in a first-aid kit for a hike, are simply necessary.
Drops in the nose, spray, or even ointment from the cold, too, will be useful, because this attack can happen absolutely unexpectedly. There are a great many means and you should choose at least one of them based on your own experience. Well proved Galozolin. And in the fight against the common cold and at its price.
Poisoning in a camping trip is possible and even very possible, especially in the mushroom season. Therefore, without doubting, you put in the first-aid kit Polysorb, Polyphepanum or the old, familiar activated carbon.
Ointments for various applications
First, the so-called resolving ointments, such as Troxevasin, Indovazin, Heparin ointment – a wonderful remedy for bruises, edema and hematomas.
Secondly, depending on the season when the trip is planned, warming ointments may be needed: Viprosal, Nikofleks, Finalgon, or vice versa sunscreens: Floresan, “My sunshine” and others.
Dressings and tools
There is no need to decipher what it is for. Therefore, we simply provide a list of what might come in handy:
- Disposable syringes
- Special needles and threads for stitching wounds
- Medical gloves
- Burn Package
- Bandages: rubber, elastic, dressing, bandage stockings of different sizes
- Glue BF-6
As it was promised, the list turned out to be an impressive and inexperienced tourist, or a person who has never come across a complete set of a travel kits may think that all this will require a separate backpack and a personal porter. It’s not like that at all. Properly assembled and assembled first-aid kit usually does not take up much space, because it is absolutely not necessary to take all of the above drugs.
Adhering to all points, you should choose the best. You can also pack only blisters with pills without top packing, but do not forget about the instructions for each drug.
Mixtures, solutions and other medicines produced in glass containers are recommended to be poured into plastic (this, of course, does not apply to ampoules for injection) and to take other measures that can reduce the total volume.
Hiking with children
If there is at least one child in a tourist group, this should be taken into account. The list of drugs will not change, because children differ from adults only in age and increased restlessness, but it should be borne in mind that all drugs and medicines should be allowed for use by children. And of course, dressing and disinfectants will need to take with a stock.
And finally: do not be lazy to check all drugs for a shelf life. If all these conditions are met, the hike will definitely end positively, even if there are some unpleasant health-related nuances.
