check out marine (boat not military) first aid kits

Marine first aid kits are really quite comprehensive and are based on the needs of what time duration you expect before intervention by medical professionals. I spend a huge amount of time traveling by boat trans ocean and a few times have had to use these kits for major injuries i.e. broken bones, medical stapler and large lacerations and I managed to get a third degree burn in an engine-room when I was younger. Often times we have to buy kits based on an indefinite period with the lack of medical help as we can be offshore for weeks at a time. Below is an example of a medium sized kit and you can click around that site for examples. If you decide to build the kit yourself I HIGHLY recommend a "sam" splint some quick clot and a medical stapler.

This kit is from west marine.com. just a starting point and very friendly website
