First-Aid During Emergency : Keep Your First-Aid Kit Ready

Aug 17, 2007
Rush to the hospital. Is this always feasible during the hours of emergency? At the same time in small injuries you need not visit to a doctor that you can manage yourself. But in both the situations you must keep the first-aid box ready so that whenever required you can just get the essential things at the right time.

Especially if you have kids at home keeping the first-aid box is a must. Every time they come with cuts on their knees and elbows. At least the primary treatment has to be done at home. If the cut is deep and severe you will have to immediately carry the little one to the nearest hospital and over there also you will find the preliminary nursing is nothing but the first aid. The first-aid kit is a godsend during emergency.

The necessary things the first-aid kit should contain are something you must know very well. Also make it a habit to check it regularly that you have all the necessary accessories placed in order. It always happens that when you are in dire need for the thing, it's not there.

The basic essentials first

Cotton, antiseptic cream, antibiotic ointment, antiseptic lotion, adhesive tape and band-aids come in the top priorities of the first-aid kit list. Whether it's a cut or a burn or a swell you will need these accessories immediately. Also keep finger splints made of aluminum; a pair of synthetic gloves and disposable latex. They are important. Don't forget scissors, soap, eyewash, thermometer, needles and sterilizing agents. If you have to do primary bandage to stop bleeding, all these will be required instantly. Where will you hunt for them when the patient is in extreme pain and needs to be attended?

Medicines must for first-aid kit

If you are through with the first-aid basic accessories then check out for the medicines to be stored in it. Medicines over here are definitely some basic medicines like an antihistamine, an antiallergenic, a pain-killer, vomiting and stomach ache control medicine, anti-diarrhea and anti-dysentery medicines etc. You can keep a bottle of cough syrup and some vitamin tonics along with the kit. They are helpful may be not in emergencies but as regular needs.

The real emergency tools

Apart from medicines and accessories, you have some most essential things to keep in the first-aid kit. A mobile and of course all emergency phone numbers of hospitals, doctors, ambulance, medical store, pathological labs and places related to medical treatment. You have everything in the first-aid kit but without this basic information you can't move your patient a single inch. And the first aid treatment will go in vain without further care at the right time. Beware!
