    What is ORS? Oral Rehydration...?

    This reminds me...from sports shops, "instant energy" glucose syrup stuff in sachets. What you need for the shock effect.

    Excellent compilation Doc! Wonder how no one thought of such a compilation earlier.

    My kit in my car has all all these plus the following.
    Elastic or crape bandage which I find very useful in case of a sprain.
    Moov cream and spray for the same purpose and for muscular or arthritic pains
    Combiflam and Diclofenac tabs (I have a history of Rheumatoid Arthritis)
    Imodium for lose motion.
    A sealed surgical blade
    Packet of ear buds (very handy and versatile cleaning equipment)
    Hand sanitizer
    and finally Antacid and Eno pouches.

    Disposable surgical gloves are also useful to have in the toolkit, for keeping your hands clean when you have to work on something oily or greasy.
    You could get a bulk pack of them from some industrial supplies place or medical supplies place.

    Wonderful thought & very well composed Doctor Saab!:D Thanks to others with their inputs, specially to Somnath Da!:D

    One point, in my last high altitude journey (Manali - Leh - Pangong Tso - Leh - Manali), I used Avomine irrespective of the fact that I got a vomiting tendency or not, instead of Domstal.

    Now my question is what are the basic differences between those two drugs (Avomine & Domstal)?:confused:

    I am planning Kinnaur during June this year with wife & kids (now, 30 months completed); what are you suggesting as Travel Kit for Kids, specially:confused:

    If your pillion can sit in the small enough space to fit all that, then I don't think you have to worry about anything!
