Please pass the aspirin bottle!
It’s the morning after a Christmas party and I have a headache. Big surprise! One small benefit to the mild throbbing in my head is that I am inspired to put down a few words about medical stuff. We are fortunate in that we have a lot of very knowledgeable friends. One of these friends, a paramedic, has been kindly bringing us various supplies for us to add to our boat’s medical kit. When he offered to help with this, I printed off a copy of the Cruising Medical Kit webpage (edit: website no longer available) and gave it to him so that he has an idea of what at least one doctor recommends that we keep on hand.
For those of you who are interested in this subject I also bookmarked a couple of other websites during my research, Where There Is No Doctor and the Ship Captain’s Medical Guide. Both of those websites have their resources available for download in .pdf format.
Now, about that aspirin…
