What problems do you face when using a first aid kit ?

I'm doing a first aid kit design for my dnt (design n technology) coursework . Can u give me some ideas please ? Help !! Thnk you !!

Dear haymi:

I also have pondered how to design a first-aid kit. Though first-aid kits are indispensable, here are some of the problems that I have encountered:

The biggest problem one faces is the fact that when you use a first-aid kit, you sometimes are in an isolated setting. In such cases, all that you have is all that you got. Consequently, you want to carry the widest possible variety of items so as to be ready to treat the widest possible array of emergencies; but size and weight are limiting factors.
The individual items within a kit may rattle around loose, resulting in breakage or disarray.
Containers of liquids or ointments within may burst and leak from exposure to heat, as when the first-aid kit is kept in the trunk of an automobile.
Items within may become broken or worn-out. Medicines within may be past their expiration dates. Of course, the only solution to this is regular scheduled inspections.
Old-style cases made of metal were heavy, subject to rusting, and carried the danger of conducting electricity (the last a very real possibility at the scene of a disaster). Thankfully, most modern first-aid kit cases are made of plastic or woven nylon, both non-conductors.
Another problem: The small first-aid booklet included with each first-aid kit has useful information - but not much of it. Moreover, some of the information may be outdated (i.e., recommending oral suction on snakebites).
In addition, first-aid kits used in commercial or industrial settings must conform to OSHA regulations regarding design and contents. You have a little more leeway in designing a first-aid kit for use in a private home or private automobile.
Finally, to prevent disease transmission in this age of hepatitis and AIDS, protective equipment is an absolute must!

Here are my thoughts regarding how I would design a first-aid kit.

The case would be made of a lightweight, but sturdy plastic. This avoids the disadvantages of a metal case, as I described above. The plastic would be colored white so as reduce heat absorption. The white color also would ensure that any contaminating substance that got on the surface (mud, blood, etc.) would be readily visible.
I would design the kit with two separate compartments, similar to a portmanteau suitcase. Each compartment would have its own handle, which could be held together in one hand. In addition, the kit would be fitted with not just one, but two, secure "double action" latches to make absolutely sure that it stays closed, even if dropped (if the kit pops open and spills its contents, you will be of no help to the victims).
The two halves would be of the same size so that, when opened, they would lie flat.
The edges would be lined with a foam material to keep the case waterproof, thus protecting the contents.

Now, picture this:

When the kit is opened, we would see that both compartments are covered with thin plastic flaps to keep the contents of each compartment contained and separate, just like the portmanteau suitcase it resembles. In the clear plastic "sleeve" on the left flap, we would find a pair of sterile plastic gloves, stored flat in a protective paper cover. In the clear plastic "sleeve" on the right flap, we would find a surgeons mask, also stored flat in a protective paper cover. Don these two items of protective gear before you do anything else.
Now, open the flaps (unlike the flaps on a portmanteau suitcase, which open inwards, these flaps open outward and extend beyond the edges of the compartments). The action of opening the flaps exposes all of the items within the kit. Moreover, in the clear plastic "sleeve" on the left flap, we would find two traditional triangular bandages, stored flat. In the clear plastic "sleeve" on the right flap, we would find the first-aid manual, as high and wide (and thin) as a magazine, big enough to hold lots of information.
Incidentally, as a bonus, the seller would agree to provide the purchaser with a website where an updated first-aid manual may be downloaded by the purchaser at any time, thus giving the purchaser the latest first-aid information for his kit (it seems like those CPR people change the breaths-to-compressions ratio every other Sunday).
Both compartments of the portmanteau would be sub-divided into many smaller compartments, something like a box of chocolates, so as to store the items - particularly the small items. The plastic flaps would keep everything in place.
So, with your protective gear donned, and all items visible before you, you are ready to go.

I have also some ideas as to what items should be placed in the kit, and how they should be laid out; but I am running out of available space.

Okay, there are my ideas. I hope this helps. Good luck.
