First Responder Kit 4.0

medlink first responder

First Responder -- Contains the supplies necessary to stabilize an injured person. As a grab and go kit, it is meant as your first line of defense for treating the full range of likely emergencies. The kit is organized with color-coded, see-through window pouches for quick selection of appropriate items. For anyone trained in first aid, this kit is a true confidence builder.*

It has been redesigned to include more of the items needed for immediate assessment of patients while at sea. Still within this kit are the lifesaving Rx medications, an Epi-pen .3mg auto-injector, Albuterol Inhaler, & the Nitroglycerin tabs. In addition, this kit is a required first component of any other kit from MedLink. This kit is perfect to add onto your tenders or include in your garage.

Advanced Emergency Medical Kit -- A working kit for attending to a severely sick or injured person once they have been stabilized. This kit is most effectively utilized when supported by a telemedicine link to MedLink physicians who specialize in remote care. The kit is meant to complement the First-Responder kit and is not sold separately.*

The Advanced Medical Kit is designed for cruising and has been updated to include 2 major components; The Consumable Kit (includes items such as gauze pads, trauma scissors, bandages, items/medications that do not expire, etc.) and The Expirable Kit (includes over the counter & pharmaceutical medications that have an expiration date.) This kit has been assessed by the MedLink team of doctors and utilizing historical data from the maritime calls, the contents of the kit was updated. (This kit is meant to complement the First-Responder kit and is not sold separately.)

This chest also contains trauma supplies to treat severe injuries and burns. This kit is designed for restocking the smaller kits as well as holding the bulk supplies.

Pediatric Kit

Pediatric Kit As a supplement to the First Responder Kit, the contents provide milder and lower-dosage medications that address the unique medical needs of those under age 12.

Since adult doses are unsafe for children, you’ll have access to specific antibiotics, fluids and pain relievers to manage daily events or emergencies.

Oxygen and Resuscitation Kit

Oxygen and Resuscitation Kit Crew will have the necessary oxygen management tools in this kit to aid in the treatment of a range of conditions that can occur at sea, such as vasovagal (fainting) episodes, seizures, choking episodes, cardiac events, panic/anxiety attacks and chronic respiratory ailments. This configuration contains a "Jumbo D" oxygen cylinder with regulator, multiple oxygen delivery devices, oral airways, adult and pediatric bag-valve masks and extremely effective manual suction devices.

All statistics show that the more remote the situation, the more critical the need for an AED. The chances of survival for a person suffering ventricular fibrillation are virtually zero, unless they receive a shock from an AED within 10 minutes of fibrillation. For every minute that goes by after fibrillation, the chances of survival drops by 10 percent. So, if the cardiac event happens onboard an aircraft, a ship or out on a mountaintop, a person’s only chance for survival is an AED, and someone who knows how to use it, being close at hand.
