Must Have Items in Your First Aid Kit

Emergency cases require you to respond quickly, so it is essential to have a well-organized First Aid Kit and know all the First Aid Kit components.

A First Aid Kit that is well equipped is necessary for every house- and in all your cars. If anything, you are as likely to experience emergency needs like insect bites while in your car as in your house. The limited space in the cars, however, sometimes limits the number of tools that can be accommodated.

The components of first aid kit vary depending on the size and intended purpose of the kit. For instance, a First Aid Kit at the football pitch will have slightly different components as the First Aid Kit for home use.

Benefits of CPR certification

The numbers do not lie, right? This is usually true for the most part and will help you understand just how important for as many people as possible to have CPR certification.

According to the American health association (AHA)

  • A majority of cardiac arrest victims look and feel perfectly healthy before the attack begins.
  • Approximately 90% of all cardiac arrests happen at home or a place far from a healthcare facility, and any healthcare professional.
  • Of all the cardiac victims, only a few more than 30% get CPR from bystanders
  • When you call an ambulance, it takes between 8 and 12 minutes for it to arrive.
  • Bystander CPR could increase the victim’s chance of survival by as much as 300.
  • Once you get a cardiac arrest attack, it takes about 4 minutes for brain death to begin. If you do not get medical help within 10 minutes, you are most likely to die.
  • One out of 7 deaths in America is due to heart disease.

First aid is the assistance given to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening or to promote recovery.

This only highlights the importance of having quality first aid training. A good first aid training provides you with adequate and appropriate knowledge of first aid equipment and techniques that willprovide you with proper first aid services which will help in curbing the unnecessary loss of lives.
