Okie dokie guys! So the past couple weeks we've been talking about the things you need to help you survive. And I've told you that its really important to have a first aid kit. But what needs to be in a first aid kit? For the purpose of surviving in an apocalyptic world like this one, your normal run of the mill first aid kits with bandaids and stuff probably won't be enough. You'll want to put together your own medical kit.

 

So, to start off, get a backpack or bag with enough space to keep quite a bit of stuff, and preferably with multiple pockets for organization. You're gonna want to get some tools like nail clippers, tweezers, q-tips, a thermometer, and scissors. If you can, try and also find a scalpel, stethoscope, and trauma shears. Those might be harder to find.

 

Something else you'll want to pack is over-the-counter medications. Raid your medicine cabinet for whatever you can find, but most importantly you'll want these:

  • Ibuprofen (Advil)
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Aspirin
  • Anti-histamine
  • Immodium/Loperamide
  • Sudafed (or an equivalent)
  • Throat lozenges
  • Bismuth tabs
  • Oral rehydration
  • Cranberry extract
  • Dramamine
  • Stool softener (laxative)

I'm not actually sure what all of those are, but this book says they're important. So then after you get the meds, you'll want things like bandages, antibiotic cream (Neosporin), soap, rubbing alcohol (or alcohol wipes), medical tape, gloves, and hydrogen peroxide.

 

If you are able to get your hands on prescription medications, some of them could prove really useful, especially antibiotics. Get whatever you can and keep them in your medical kit. You never know when you might need them.

 

Good luck everyone, and stay safe! Hopefully you won't need to use the medical kit, but you should always be prepared!
