As an anesthesiologist who has responded to some interesting in-flight medical issues on commercial airlines, who determines what is in the medical kit? The airline or the FAA?

I have sometimes felt like I was being handed a Playschool Medical kit and the stocked drugs are OK but could be improved in type or amount.

Thanks in advance.

The FAA has the basic list, airlines may add to it as they see fit.

Here is the relevant FAA Advisory Circular...

And the CFR about the kits:

And an interesting article ( well, for me) about the issues for medical professionals during an inflight medical situation.
