No, not those kind. My wife and I are planning a trip through South America and incorporating some medical volunteering in some remote regions (she is a Critical Care Nurse Practitioner). We're planning on coordinating mailing in supplies with the local relief organizations we expect to be working with, but since we're riding, my wife really wants to bring a fairly extensive kit with her in case (1) we fall down, or (2) there are issues with the supplies being mailed in and she wants to have some with her. A basic first aid kit I wouldn't be too concerned with at border crossings, but what we're probably looking at would involve airway management tools, minor surgical instruments, (probably won't be a problem) and various narcotics and other drugs (I imagine this would be where the problem would be). In the US she has prescribing authority and a DEA number, but obviously that would probably mean little outside the US. I've been searching but haven't seen any posts dealing with it, and figured there is so much expertise here someone will probably have some experience to share. Anyways, does anyone have any thoughts about whether this is likely to be a big problem in any countries in South or Central America, or heck, Mexico even. Any suggestions for where to go for information on this sort of thing? My wife has declared it my responsibility to "make it work" and I don't know where to begin here.
