No First Aid Kit is Complete Without These Essential Items
When it comes to preparedness, having a complete and well-stocked first aid kit is essential. A good first aid kit should contain the essential items you need to treat minor injuries and illnesses. In this blog post, we'll be discussing the must-have items for any first aid kit. With these essential items, you'll have peace of mind knowing that you're fully prepared in case of an emergency. Read on to learn what items every first aid kit should have!
The best first aid kits will contain a range of different size and type of plasters.
We recommend waterproof and roll options with sterile gauze dressings. Having a good variety of bandaging and gauze will help allow for anyone to be prepared for any number of accidents. The inclusion of crepe roll bandaging works well with sterile gauze. We also recommend antiseptic, and antibacterial topical treatment as must haves in every kit.
Alcohol free cleansing wipes are a good addition and give flexibility of cleaning up minor accidents. Sterile eye wash and eye dressings are important for those ocular mishaps. It’s a good idea to have distilled water handy to help clean wounds and eyes if necessary.
As a general rule, we recommend every kit contains antihistamine creams and medicines, along with pain killers for both children and adults. If you have space in your kit, it's a good idea to include rash cream and insect bite treatment.
Here is a list of first aid tools you won’t want to leave out your kits:
- Disposable Gloves
- Small light
It is very important that all medicinal products be checked regularly to keep sure they are in date and still ready to go if necessary. We feel that preparedness is the best defence against accidents.
