Did you know that leaning your head back when you have a nosebleed is bad for your health? Putting your head back can result in blood flowing down your throat and stomach, resulting in nausea. First aid is an essential skill one should master to be prepared for any scenario, and with the help of a proper first aid kit, you can be prepared for any injury.
A pre-made first aid kit has most of the essential equipment such as gauze, tape, and ointment, but these kits may lack a few useful tools which can help keep everyone safe. If you are looking to treat any injuries during this summer, here are a few first aid kit must-haves you should have in hand, just in case!
Water is the source of all life, and having clean, potable water on hand should always be a top priority. Clean water from a bottle can be used for cleaning wounds and treating dehydration, and with the possibility of the nearest clean water source being far away, having a bottle of water on hand will always be useful in treating any injuries! From heatstroke to washing cuts and grazes, always bring a bottle with you along with your first aid kit!
If you are traveling with those with a history of severe allergic reactions, never leave home without an EpiPen to protect them from anaphylaxis. Ask your physician for a prescription, and always keep it at an easily accessible location to ensure swift administration in case of emergencies.
You may not always have access to running water to wash your hands when out and about, and hence it would always be useful to have hand sanitizer on hand. Useful in reducing the spread of germs and viruses, it also reduces the risk of infecting wounds and can also be used proactively to protect you and your loved ones from viruses in public spaces.
Pain relief should always be an essential component of administering first aid. Aside from easing pain, these medications can relieve body aches, fever, sunburn, bites, and general aches or pains. Most first aid kits already come with Ibruprofen or Tylenol, but having a range of painkillers such as Panadol and Ibruprofen to treat a wide range of different injuries and avoid potential allergic restrictions would be incredibly helpful. Consider easy-to-swallow liquid painkillers to assist in the treatment of younger children.
Wounds often need to be bound or covered to protect them from external infections. While having bandages and plasters may seem incredibly obvious, a wide range of different bandages and waterproof plasters along with wound closure strips and ACE bandages can allow you to be ready for any sort of injury which may occur.
