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)

Re: Dojo First Aid Kit

Lol... Yeah well, spit, whiskey whatever works for you.

Yep, calamine lotionis a pink liquid you can get cheap from most pharmasicsts. Been using this since my days in the eagle scouts, part of our traditional FA kit. Mat burns is probably something that'll happen to the new guys.

Of course REAL MEN (Tm) don't mind mat burns, or chaffed skins... Break my right and i'll use my left.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.

Re: Dojo First Aid Kit

Add to the list:

-Plastified (sp? Plastised?) card with dojo address and phone number; if you need to call 911, the person making the call might not know the address, so best to have that information handy.
