According to the WHO conclusion under condition that the first aid was provided in time a third of victims could be saved. The condition for rendering the first aid is the presence of a car first aid kit in the vehicle. The content of first aid kit has been analyzed. The complete set of the car first aid kit in accordance with DIN13164 standard developed by the German Institute of Standardization has been studied.
