First Aid Kits On Aircraft

 

Most airlines carry little more than the medical equipment currently required by FAA: one to four first-aid kits, depending on the number of passengers, and one medical kit per aircraft.

 

Each first-aid kit must be accessible to the flight attendants and include:


  • bandages

  • compresses for applying pressure, moisture, heat, or cold

  • antiseptic swabs

  • arm and leg splints

  • tape

  • scissors


An airplane's medical kit must be accessible to the flight crew, but is for use only by medical professionals. It must include:


  • blood pressure cuff

  • stethoscope

  • plastic airways to deliver oxygen to assist breathing

  • nitroglycerin tablets for chest pain

  • dextrose solution for hypoglycemia

  • epinephrine for asthma or allergic reactions

  • injectable diphenhydramine HCl for serious allergic reactions

  • hypodermic needles

  • protective latex gloves
