The five most important items in a first aid kit

Have you accidentally cut yourself only to find you can't find any iodine or OK bandages? You have a sprain and can't find a bandage at home?

Accidents happen all the time, and while they're not serious enough to warrant a visit to a doctor, they can cause pain and discomfort. If we didn't have the First Aid Kit Box to treat the wound, not only would the wound take longer to heal, but the pain and discomfort would also be higher!

That's why it's so important to have some First-aid Kit Accessories in your life!

Now let me introduce you to the five most important items in the First Aid Kit Box

1. Bandage:

Mesh Bandages, Elastic Bandages, Military Tourniquets, Israeli Bandage.

Bandages are generally used to secure the dressing to the wound. The gauze often falls off at the joints of the limbs due to movement. In addition to the breathable tape, it can be reinforced with mesh bandages. Elastic bandages can be used for sprains and to immobilize the affected area.

Military tourniquet: This product is a useful auxiliary tool for self-rescue and mutual assistance. It rapidly compresses blood vessels by strong contraction to stop blood flow. Compared with the traditional gauze tourniquet, it has two characteristics: first, it is fast and stops bleeding in seconds; second, it can be operated by one person, even without the help of comrades or doctors.

2. Blood sugar machine:

If you have diabetes at home, it is recommended to use a blood glucose meter. It can be used to measure blood sugar before taking medicine. Don't take blood sugar medications or inject insulin when blood sugar levels are low or you haven't eaten throughout the day, as low blood sugar or lack of food can often lead to low blood sugar when using blood sugar-lowering medications.

Common symptoms of hypoglycemia include altered consciousness, cold sweats, pallor, and rapid heartbeat. When the blood sugar drops below 70mg/dL, if you are conscious, you should immediately eat sugar or drink sugar water or other high-sugar foods. If you are unconscious, apply the syrup to your gums or under your tongue, do not fill it up, and call an ambulance to the emergency room immediately .

3. Thermometer:

Fears of fever have increased in the wake of the recent outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), but in the past it was customary to touch one's own forehead before touching the patient's forehead. However, this is not accurate because everyone's body temperature is different and a thermometer is needed to accurately measure a fever. Ear thermometers are recommended because they are less susceptible to external influences and are more accurate than forehead thermometers.

4. Badge:

Chest Seal uses a hydrogel so it stays in place even in difficult conditions. It is a sterile occlusive chest wound dressing for the treatment of open pneumothorax and the prevention of tension pneumothorax caused by gunshots, stab wounds or other penetrating chest trauma. The patented fail-safe three-valve design of the chest seal allows air and blood to escape while preventing the re-entry of either, eliminating any unwanted gas or fluid exchange at the trauma site.

It has been tested to operate in extreme conditions with temperatures ranging from below 32f to over 140f. The foam backing will allow the dressing to fit and secure to the patient's body.

Sucking chest wounds require a quick, immediate, and effective emergency first aid solution. Chest Seal is an advanced occlusive dressing designed to treat open chest wounds. Penetrating chest injuries that result in open wounds to the chest can lead to tension pneumothorax, the second leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield. Chest Seal is specially designed with a medical grade hydrogel adhesive that is strong enough to adhere to skin exposed to blood, sweat, hair, sand or water.

5. Personal medication:

People with asthma, diabetes, heart disease or other personal medical conditions should consult a doctor before travelling to assess their suitability for such travel. If necessary, the physician will prescribe personal medication as prescribed above. If you have any of the above, you should take the initiative to inform the tour leader, at least let him/her know where your medicines are stored and how they are used and dosed.

If you haven't already, start preparing First-aid Kit Accessories now, including First Aid Kit Box, Survival Kit and Emergency Water. Keep first aid supplies for at least three days and keep a First Aid Kit Box at home, at work, and (if you drive) in your car.

We'll try our best to become one of most reliance cooperation suppliers in emergency rescue and safety protection field, including spine board with head immobilizerfolding spine boardmedical carts for saleportable iv pole and electric dolly for stairs.
