If you are involved in any kind of physical activity, then let me tell you that there are a majority of risk factors that are involved in these exercises or any sports related exercise. Some of them can be major injuries, minor injuries and illness.

This is even true for the people who are associated with it in a professional manner such as sports persons and athletes because they involve themselves in physical activity involving aggression in an extremely competitive environment. And it is this feeling of competitive feeling that makes these players even more prone to these injuries! As far as the thinking from experts are concerned, it has been stated that after an in-depth study and preparation in advance, a player can face any contingency or injury that may arise. Let us discuss about the sports medicine kit of players. Some of the items which are found in the sports medicine kit should be:
  • A bag for a sports medical trainer.
  • Crepe bandages
  • Eye pads
  • Triangular bandages
  • Gauze swabs
  • Melolin dressing
  • Smelling salts
  • Hot/Cold packs which are reusable.
  • Sterile saline
  • Insulating tape
  • Elastic adhesive bandages
  • Anticoagulant spray meant for blood clotting.
  • Cotton wool
  • Sterile suture strips
  • Wound washes
  • Savlon /antiseptic cream
  • Scissors
  • Antiseptic wipes

These components are a must to have in a first aid of a player, otherwise he may not be able to get the essential requirements that he may need immediately after his or her injury! The fact is that as far as the composition of the sports' medicine kit and its efficiency in preventing the injury is concerned, it should be given a lot of importance not only by the physicians but by the players, coaches and the managers as well.

Let me give you some of the forms of a medical kit: The first one is known as a funny kit that forms one of the most important component of the kit. It is due to the fact that this form of medical kit is portable and act as a good container to keep the necessities. My next recommendation is that you must go for Sling bags, that are easily available at almost all medical centers. Their biggest advantage is that you can purchase themselves in varied shapes and sizes and they are the most luring items in a sports medicine kit.
