Nobody likes thinking about medical emergencies when you’re out or at home with friends or family. However, the unfortunate reality is that accidents and emergencies do occur, and while we can all do our best to avoid them, the best insurance is to be prepared. A well-ordered and well-stocked first aid kit can make the difference between panic and peace of mind, suboptimal and optimal outcomes, during an emergency. And of course, taking the simple step of getting a good first aid kit could save a life.
Which first aid kit do I need?
How do I choose the best first aid kit for me? The answer to this question depends on your desired application. For home and family first aid kits, contents should be adequate to treat the injuries or illnesses which commonly occur in recreation and home settings. At a minimum, these include:
- Cuts, abrasions, punctures, or splinters
- Muscle strains or sprains
- Small burns
- Open cuts or bleeding wounds
- Broken or fractured bones
- Injuries to the eye area
Additional items such as a first aid instruction booklet/leaflet and a CPR mask are also important components.
