Since 1 August 1986, the [U.S.] Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has required medical kits be carried on all aircraft with thirty or more seats. In addition, kits are commercially available, as are published suggestions for the composition of kits which can be used by physicians during wilderness, overseas, and shipboard travel. However, little data are available regarding medical kits to be carried in a physician's private automobile for use in prehospital emergencies. It was the goal of this study to design such a kit for use by the residents, graduates, and faculty of the Emergency Medicine Residency at Wright State University. This paper will discuss how and why the various items were chosen for inclusion in this kit.
