Water Sports First Aid Medical Trauma Kit
Essential basic first aid medical trauma kit specifically designed for saving lives when water sports become emergency events.
1 x Dry bag 5L
All of the items come in a handy tube shaped bag. Dimensions approximately 600mm diameter x 300mm height. There’s a need for first aid items to be dry because no one likes a wet, soggy bandage.
Roll and clip enclosure with buckle. Made from yellow heavy duty durable 500D PVC Tarp.
2 x High risk medical gloves (pair)
Wear one for you and one for your patient, always. Also handy for collecting ‘bits’.
1 x Trauma shears – large
The medical type of scissor, good at actually cutting.
1 x Haemostatic dressing 3” x 6’ roll
Stops bleeding in about 30 seconds and is safe for anyone to use (even if the patient is a haemophiliac or taking cardiac medication or anti-coagulants such as aspirin, Warfarin etc). Think jelly crystals for blood. Training is required on how to use this product effectively – how and when.
1 x Tourniquet C.A.T
For stemming blood flow on limbs. A tourniquet will stop uncontrolled bleeding when applied properly. Suitable for a lay person who has had current training. Requires knowledge/training on how to use effectively.
2 x Combine dressing trauma pad 20cm x 20cm
Standard trauma dressing as used by Grandad’s brother in World War II.
2 x Standard crepe bandage 7.5cm x 4.5m
For turning people into mummies, a traditional gauze bandage roll.
2 x Elastic bandage
A crepe bandage on steroids that applies more pressure easily. Adheres to itself, no flappy bits and no reason to chase your bandage across the park when you accidentally drop it.
1 x Flexible medical roll splint
Handy tool for splinting limbs, wrists, even people named Bob. Not just people named Sam. Think waterproof cardboard. Comfortable splint. Moldable and lightweight. Washable and reusable.
5 x Gauze swab 7.5cm x 7.5cm
Think tiny, tiny smurf kitchen cloths for cleaning wounds.
1 x Fabric dressing strip 1m
Cuttable and customisable to scraps. Does many shapes and sizes. Why buy Bandaids?
10 x Adhesive wound dressing 6cm x 7cm
When you get a small ouchie not big enough for a massive strip of dressing strip. Say that two times, fast 🙂
1 x Liquid bandage spray
Excellent for flexible areas and allows normal coverage of a wound or chaffing, road rash, rapid rash. Also funny to spray on a patient to see them squeal due to it’s cleansing power.

Safety pins 10 pack
For pinning nappies and for pinning stuff together.
1 x Triangular bandage
