Independent Medical Kit
The Independent Medical Kit is the Nomad Pharmacy premier ready-made personal medical kit covering an immense range of travel health related treatments. Take this medical/first aid kit if you are planning to be away for a long time or travelling to remote areas where you have no immediate access to medical assistance.
Why Choose the Independent Medical Kit?
Jason Gibbs, Nomad in-house pharmacist says: "I have travelled to remote corners of the world such as the Tibetan plains and the jungles of Laos, and I wanted to make a medical kit that would cover all bases for a trip where there would be very few, if any, medical facilities or supplies. This was the birth of the Independent Medical Kit."
What does the Independent Medical Kit cover?
Diarrhoea & Dehydration: Getting hot and sweaty or suffering from diarrhoea will dehydrate you, which in turn can cause further problems such as heat exhaustion and dizziness. Usually increasing your fluid intake coupled with some salty food is sufficient, but sometimes using a rehydration solution, designed to aid optimal absorption of fluids and salts is best. This kit contains 6 of them as well as loperamide that can temporarily slow down or halt diarrhoea if it is becoming a problem.
Pain Relief: this kit contains paracetamol which can be used to reduce a high temperature as well as for the general aches and pains of everyday travelling whilst being gentle on the stomach as well as Ibuprofen anti-inflammatory tablets.
Burn Treatment: the burn gel found in the kit is similar to that carried by paramedics. It can reduce the pain and damage of all manner of burns such as sunburn, scalds or mild fire burns.
First aid: cuts and grazes are an inevitable fact of travelling life. Cleaning and treating small wounds quickly will go a long way to preventing them become a much more serious ulcerated or infected sore. Your personal kit contains a decent supply of different types of dressings from plasters to larger non adherent dressings along with sterile cleaning wipes and a strong spray-on antiseptic. Dust is another common problem whilst travelling and your Independent Medical Kit contains a saline eye and wound wash should your eyes be affected.
Anti-fungal treatment: Any situation where you frequently become hot and sweaty and have limited personal or clothes washing facilities gives a perfect environment to develop fungal infections such as athlete's foot or dhobi itch. The quicker these infections are treated the better!
Allergic reactions: Some people react to insect bites, some to plants and other environmental elements. The Independent Medical kit contains anti-histamine tablets to deal with this quickly.
Skin eruptions: For conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and insect bite reactions - all common travelling conditions - the Independent contains a stronger hydrocortisone cream.
Tiger balm: This has a multitude of uses from rubbing on sore muscles to making a decongesting steam should you contract a cold or blocked sinuses.
Water purification: Travel related illnesses such as diarrhoea and vomiting are often caused by contaminated water. Chlorine tablets are a quick and effective way of ensuring your drinking water is always clean, even where bottled water is not available.
Sterile kit: Your Independent contains a small injection kit for use by medical professionals where sterile equipment is either in short supply or contaminated by reuse. There are many situations where sterile equipment may be needed - pain relief and fluid replacement are the most common when travelling.
