Jan 19th 2008 2:36PM Five missing items and a comment:
1) CPR facemask (protect yourself first)
2) Tape (for securing pads, other things). I'd suggest two kinds, athletic-type for taping up ankles and wrists and paper tape for other uses
3) Butterfly closures for small cuts
4) A sharpie or equivalent for writing notes on persons skin so you don't forget times things happened, if there is still debris in a wound, etc.
5) An ab-pad for big odd wounds. Every now and then, you may have to deal with a big bleed or just a large chunk of road rash that you want to protect or provide direct pressure on until you can get to better assistance.
A bandana isn't large enough for most slings -- its worth shredding a bedsheet or buying a real triangular bandage and practicing with it. And use non-latex _EVERYTHING_, bandages, gloves, etc. There are a lot more of us latex-reactive people running around than you think, so unless you want to add an epi-pen to your kit, just lose the latex. You can easily find comparably priced latex-free gear these days.

These are pretty watches. Shiny, or at least reflective.

Jun 26th 2007 12:57PM Already done by Olivetti in Europe during the late 80s. This formed one of the componeunts of the Ubiqitious Computing project. It did other clever things like rebalanced the HVAC for the number of people in the room, or make your directories available on the local workstation if they weren't there already.
