A First Aid Kit For Your Motorcycle

Postby caronroger » Sun May 01, 2011 12:58 pm



A FIRST AID KIT FOR YOUR MOTORCYCLE
Do you bring a first aid kit with you when you go for a ride on your motorcycle? If not what do you do when you have or encounter an accident where someone, maybe you need emergency first aid?
It is always a good idea to have a kit with you when you ride!
There are a plethora of prepackaged first aid kits at your local drug stores and auto parts dealers. The internet has a wide variety of kits available in a variety of price ranges.
It is also possible to put your own kit together by shopping at a store like Walmart or your local drug store. A prepackaged kit is nice as it comes with a case to store all the needful items and is quite well thought out. The one I have shown below sells for under $17.00 and seems to contain most items you might need for roadside emergency first aid repair. There is however one missing item that you should have with you and that is a splint. While it is impossible to carry everything you might need in an emergency you can go to your local Paint store, Home Depot or Lowes hardware store and get a couple of free wooden paint stirrers to use for an emergency splint.

Now to find an RN who wants to ride with me!

Wouldn't ride without one. Hope I'm able to use it if I ever go down. ;)

I've been carrying a first aid kit for years, even used it once. Over the winter, I discovered and bought this trauma kit

http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/product.php?product=242&catname=Essentials&prodname=Trauma%20Pak%20with%20QuikClot

I carry one in the bike and another in the trailer. It seems like a good idea to be able to control massive bleeding until help arrives. I also inform people I ride with of its availability in case I'm the one that needs it :-)

Didn't want to be a "vegg" in some CCU ..my nickname with the Paramedics and the ER Dept WAS "Organ Donner." I worked in the Engineering Department Technical Maintenance.

Now there's something that's rare as hens teeth. Most RN's won't go anywhere near a motorcycle. I know, I used to be married to one.
