First Aid Kit necessities

Our boat came equipped with a MACKDADDY (you can thank me later for the 80s reference) First Aid Kit. It has gauze, tape, band-aid, splints, ice bags, tourniquets, Ace bandages,
Burn aid dressings, CPR masks, blood pressure cuff and gauge, drugs (get your mind out of the gutter haha), and MORE!* I hope we never have to use any of these in an emergency situation but it is comforting to know it’s there.
What other medicine or supplies are a MUST have in a first aid kit?
