Living a hardy, outdoor lifestyle comes with certain risks. Just a few weeks ago I was about to go scuba diving at La Jolla Cove, when a swimmer flagged my group for help. After towing him to the beach, he collapsed on the sand. Local lifeguards had already been alerted, and were ready to begin to begin CPR as soon as we hit the beach. They alternated between cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation, until paramedics arrived and rushed the swimmer to the hospital.
I wish that was the first serious injury I’d witnessed, but it wasn’t. In the water or on the trail, the potential for serious injury is always present. Well maintained safety equipment and informed decision making can help mitigate risks, but won’t eliminate them completely. It’s essential to have a Plan B, if you or someone around you suddenly becomes sick or injured.

Our favorite innovation from My Medic are their sport specific medpacks. As an outdoor lifestyle brand, can appreciate athletes’ urgent need for specific first aid equipment in compromising situations.
My Medic offers a number of different medpacks for common outdoor injuries and ailments. Medpacks can be used as standalone kits or to augment an existing first aid kit. There are medpacks for generic ailments like cuts, burns, allergies, headaches, and colds, and medpacks built to treat specific sports injuries, related to cycling and hiking.
The Airway MedPack includes everything you need to treat the three most common airway injuries; cardiopulmonary arrest, penetrating chest trauma, and obstructed airway. This pack includes a chest seal, CPR mask, and nasal airway inserts, plus lubricant for a seamless entry.
On the trail twisted ankles, hypothermia, dehydration, fatigue, and losing your way are constant hazards, which can set in rapidly and quickly spiral out of control. The Hiker Medic MedPack is designed to deal specifically with these types of scenarios. In addition to common first aid items, like gauze and bandages, this MedPack includes a number of hiking specific tools, like paracord, chlorine tablets, a survival blanket, and an emergency whistle.
