Medical supplies for crewing
I've crewed a few swim lately, including multi day events and >24 hr solos, and thought I'd share the inventory of my Med kit. I typically include Medications and supplies not just for the swimmer but for all the crew.

Supplies: wound cleansing bottle, surgical scrub brush, suture supplies, gauze pads, abdominal pads, metaphor tape, KT tape, Ace wraps, braces for fingers, wrists, knees, back, steristrips, stethoscope, BP cuff, Pulse Ox, IV starts, IV tubing, IV Fluids, tegraderm, thermometer, surgical glue, bag valve mask, transport sheet, foil warming blanket.
I'd love to hear any suggestions about what might be missing.
