Building Your Own First-Aid Kits

building-first-aid-kits

You never know when you will need a first-aid kit and this is why it is so important to always have one ready to go at a moment’s notice. These kits can provide valuable medical assistance during emergency situations and they can even help save a life. There are many different types of first-aid kits you can find throughout pharmacies in North Carolina but building your own allows you to tailor make your kit to meet your preferences.

Creating a first aid kit ensures that you know exactly what is in the kit and can allow you to add important items for specific trips, such as a hike in the woods or for long road trips. Here are some important items that you will want to consider when building your own first aid kit:

  • Bandages:

    No first-aid kit is complete without bandages. There are numerous bandages you could take such as adhesive bandages, triangular bandages, and crepe-rolled bandages. Bandages serve multitude purposes. They can be used to slow down bleeding, keep wounds clean, and generally protect a wound until medical professionals can render assistance.

  • Disinfects:

    Getting injured, especially in the wilderness can lead to infection quite quickly. In order to combat this, you will need to have different items that can be used to disinfect and clean wounds such as antiseptic cream, distilled water, and alcohol.

  • Painkillers:

    Getting injured can be a painful experience. So having some general painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol can help relieve the pain until medical professionals arrive.

  • Tools:

    It is important to keep a number of tools in your first-aid kits such as scissors, a knife, tweezers, thermometers, disposable sterile gloves, and safety pins.

  • Manual:

    Check your local pharmacies for first-aid kit manuals. These manuals can provide crucial information in an emergency. They will show you how to treat certain kinds of wounds and what you need to do while waiting for medical assistance.

Those are just a few of the many things to include in a first-aid kit. South Park Family Pharmacy can help you build a first aid kit through our convenient products and pharmacy services.
