I'm not an EMT or anything like that. I joined this forum to look/ask for ideas from experts/professionals on this question: If you were building a lightweight first aid kit to be used in wilderness hiking/scrambling in areas like the Colorado 14ers, what items (being very specific would really help me) would you choose, remembering that the kit needs to be as light in weight as possible? In anticipation of questions, I would say that the most common injuries for the kind of hiking/scrambling I am involved in would be, more-or-less in order: blisters, cuts/abrasions, bug bites, minor burns, dehydration, sprains, fractures. Illnesses would be headaches, indigestion, allergies, nausea. But if you have wilderness EMS experience, you know far better than I do what to prepare for. I have built kits that included tons of stuff based on recommendations found in a number of places, but my problem is that these kits always end up being way too large and heavy. I now split my first aid kit into two parts: one (heavier) that I can leave at my basecamp, and one (lighter) that I can carry on the ascent to a mountain summit. Any advice will be appreciated, and thanks in advance.
