First Aid Kits

April 16, 2020

Having a first aid kit is not a new concept. They date back more than 100 years to Robert Wood Johnson’s first-aid cabinet, which he debuted in 1888. Despite the changes in the history of first-aid kits, they remain valuable as ever. Until professional help arrives, they allow ordinary people to help. The right supplies and education are more important than a special certification to provide first aid. 

You can protect injuries from getting worse by having a first aid kit at home and potentially avoid trips to a walk-in clinic or hospital if you have one handy. It is particularly important if the injury involves blood loss. It is possible to give temporary aid to an injured person, but in some cases, emergency services may still be required.

It’s a good idea to have a first aid kit that’s well-stocked. In case of an emergency, you should:

  • Your home and car should be equipped with first aid kits.
  • Know where you can find a first aid kit or carry one with you.
  • You should find out where your workplace keeps first aid kits.

First-aid kit checklist

  • A family of four’s first aid kit should include the following components:
  • A first-aid guide
  • 2 absorbent compress dressings
  • 25 adhesive bandages 
  • 1 adhesive cloth tape 
  • 5 antibiotic ointment packets
  • 5 antiseptic wipe packets
  • 2 packets of aspirin (81 mg each)
  • 1 emergency blanket
  • 1 breathing barrier (with one-way valve)
  • 1 instant cold compress
  • 2 pairs of nonlatex gloves (size: large)
  • 2 hydrocortisone ointment packets
  • 1 3-inch gauze roll (roller) bandage
  • 1 roller bandage 
  • Sterile gauze pads
  • 5 sterile gauze 
  • A thermometer (non-mercury/non-glass)
  • 2 triangular bandages
  • Tweezers

 

Kit Contents

  • Triangular bandages 

Triangle bandages may be used as a large dressing, as slings to support limbs, or to secure dressings. Open triangle bandages are used as slings on arms if you want to wrap them around that arm. As an alternative, you can ask the individual to hold their arm across their chest as you work.

  • Non- stick wound dressing

This is mainly used as an alternative to gauze when covering large wound areas. It will prevent the dressing from sticking to wound surfaces.

  • Crepe bandages

To secure dressings such as gauze, wound pads and sterile compresses over an open wound, medium-weight Elastoplast Crepe Bandage comes in handy. The natural compression they provide also helps to relieve swelling.

  • Emergency rescue blanket

An emergency blanket, also called a first aid blanket, a space blanket, a Mylar blanket, a thermal blanket, or a weather blanket, reduces heat loss in a person’s body caused by thermal radiation, moisture evaporation, or convection. 

  • Asthma spacer 

Spacers help the medication get directly to the lung tissue where it is needed in order to reduce the amount of medication getting into your mouth and throat, which can cause minor irritations. Additionally, a spacer can facilitate the coordination of breathing and pressing your puffer.

  • CPR face shields (For one-time use)

You will remain protected from saliva and sprays, splatters, drops, dust, oil, and smoke while maintaining clear vision during operation. With an elastic band and a soft headband, our Face Shield is lightweight and comfortable to wear for a long time.

Customized first-aid kits:

  • When assembling a first-aid kit, consider the healthcare needs of your family. Here are a few examples:
  • Include antihistamine medications and epinephrine injectors if you have a family member with a severe allergy.
  • The paper tape will protect delicate skin if you have elderly relatives with sensitive skin.
  • Include glucagon injections for emergencies for any family member or friend who lives with diabetes.
  • Someone with coronary artery disease might benefit from chewable, baby aspirin if they are not allergic to aspirin.

 

Notes

Ensure that you have the essentials for thrombosis control and personal needs. You should have a tourniquet, bandages, felt-tipped pen, and other items handy. Train yourself in bleeding-control methods and be prepared in the event of an emergency.

Any supplies that are about to expire should be thrown away, used, or replaced. Using your smartphone, set up a calendar reminder for every six months or when your family’s healthcare needs change.

You and your loved ones can have peace of mind by having a first aid kit in the house. Keep your first aid kit stocked and make sure everyone in the household knows where it is located.
