Medical supplies for travelers to developing countries. There has been little research to date on the use of medicines and first aid supplies by travelers.

As space for medical supplies in the luggage of many individuals, particularly backpackers, may be restricted, it is important to identify correctly those items most likely to be needed.The aim (...) they returned to the UK, asking them to note those items that they included in the kit, those actually used, and any others obtained while they were away.

I bought my Littmann Cardiology III during my first term of medical school in 1999.

Receiving your medical student diagnostic (...) kit is one of the rites of passage for all of us who enter this profession. I still own all of these items. Most are in that same black leather bag on a shelf in my office. But it was my stethoscope that I have used most often since then, well, until today. That stethoscope was with me in the Caribbean where I placed it on the bodies of mock and real patients. I listened to patients with dengue fever, Jamaican vomiting sickness, as well as diabetes and heart disease. I almost lost it on a bus
