contents for your personal First Aid

The contents for your personal First Aid kit

Even though it seems small it can fit an amazing amount of first aid items inside. The following is a list of everything that can fit within a small Altoid tin.

1 fingertip band aid: These hourglass shaped band aids are made for your fingertip. The wide areas wrap around your finger and to each other to keep the band aid in place.

1 knuckle band aid: This "H" shaped band aid has gaps to give extra room for you knuckle to bend.

2 medium band aids

personal First Aid kit

"You carry a personal first aid kit?" my coworker asked.
"Well you needed it didn't you?"

The first reaction to my pulling out a personal First Aid kit is that I would carry one. That is usually followed up closely with acknowledgement that it is indeed a wise thing to carry as its sometimes needed.

The concept of a personal First Aid kit that a person would carry upon their person isnt all that strange. The purpose of first aid is to attend to health accidents and needs and those don't always strike at a convienent time. Many companies sell kits for your car or home but do you spend all of your time in your car or home? The benefit of having a small kit on you at all times is that it is with you at all times.

First Aid Tips new

When someone is injured or suddenly becomes ill, there is usually a critical period before you can get medical treatment and it is this period that is of the utmost importance to the victim. What you do, or what you don't do, in that interval can mean the difference between life and death. You owe it to yourself, your family and your neighbors to know and to understand procedures that you can apply quickly and intelligently in an emergency.

Every household should have some type of first aid kit, and if you do not already have one, assemble your supplies now. Tailor the contents to fit your family's particular needs. Don't add first aid supplies to the jumble of toothpaste and cosmetics in the medicine cabinet. Instead, assenble them in a suitable, labeled box (such as a fishing tackle box or small tool chest with hinged cover), so that everything will be handy when needed. Label everything in the kit clearly, and indicate what it is used for.
