Emergency / Remote medical advice services?

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

Q:
Hi there, My husband and I are preparing for cruising in our sailboat – expecting to leaven in April 2008. We have been planning our medical kit / supplies for the last 3 years, and both have some basic medical training. (We also have your Marine Medical 3000 as a good base) What we are looking for now is a good 24/7 medical contact service – are you aware of any? If an emgency situation does arise that we feel we can’t manage/ don’t understand – it would be most reassuring to know (in advance) we can contact an expert and always expect an answer (we have a Satallite phone, and email) Many thanks Maryanne Webb

Which kit is the best for my needs?

Friday, December 28th, 2007

Q:
I am a river guide during the summer, I usually do class 3-5 rapids, and do multi day trips with up to 12 people. I have my WFR and EMT certifications. I also do a lot of backpacking, I do back country skiing in the winter. And I enjoy mountain biking on days off during the summer and was wondering which would be the best kit for me.

Motorcycle First Aid

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Q:
Is there a kit that you would recommend (or a custom list of items) that would be appropriate for carrying on a motorcycle in case one of the riders in our group is injured in a remote area? Obviously a lot of possible degrees of injury, but sprains, broken bones, abrasion bleeding, etc. would be possible.

A:
Curt, If you have the room I would carry the Fundamentals Kit or if space is tight – go with the Ultralight Pro. They both have the SAM Splint, CPR mask, wound cleaning items and trauma materials. There is a compare kit feature button on the right side of the product window. USe this to see the differences. Good Riding.
