Re: Dojo First Aid Kit

Some of what is mentioned here sounds good (e.g. oral products)... but if you are not qualified to give it you might just be asking for trouble or exacerbating the issue, though lifesaving measures like sugar and epipen sound good. Though you have to watch the expiry dates 'cause once you have it your duty of care obligation is to have it maintained. Better to keep it simple and refer to professionals where possible.

Having said that I would add
- a spray bottle of dilute bleach or similar (its not really first aid but important for clean up of bloods on clothing/mats etc..)
- a disposable resuscitation mask
- an injury/incident form (this is first aid as much for the dojo as the person)
