There are NO DRUGS in the orange cases in order to comply with MSA blue book, Regulations, Section F
6.5.2:- "A comprehensive list of drugs is not listed, however the individual Doctor is expected to carry those drugs that they feel are necessary and a supply of analgesic drugs for parenteral and oral administration."
6.5.3:- "Any further drugs and equipment that may be deemed to be appropriate by way of specialist expertise are the responsibility of the individual doctor.
However, a green drugs pouch will be issued on request to doctors and paramedics
who wish to have one for the period they are providing cover. These will be signed out
at The Hoggery to a named individual who is totally responsible for their correct use
and safe signed return.
Each pouch contains 2 x 10mgs vials of morphine, 2 x 10mgs vials of metoclopromide, 2 x 400microgram vials of narcan and 2 x 10ml plastic vials of sodium chloride.
The orange cases have been individually checked and sealed with a yellow plastic security tag. If this is broken
then it will indicate that the contents need to be checked against the list on the outside lid of the case. The cases
should only be opened if required and should never be left unsealed. There is a plastic bag of replacement yellow seals in the top tray of the case.
Please remember that the contents of the case were packed to make maximum use of the small space available. Whilst every item can be removed and used in seconds, repacking takes time and patience.
If you use part of the case in treating a casualty then exchange it for a full sealed unit from the helicopter ambulance when it arrives to evacuate the casualty or request the specific item used from the helicopter medics.
