What Are First Aid Supplies?

First aid supplies are an umbrella term for a collection of products that can be used to provide first aid. Now, these items can be quite diverse. It can include basics such as dressings, bandages, and plasters, but also more advanced equipment such as lung bags, face shields, and much more.

Naturally, the contents of a first aid kit depend on the environment you are working in. First aid kits in factories that work with equipment that may cause burns can include burn cream, compresses, and other emergency supplies that could help treat burn wounds. Of course, a day-care may have a kit with other supplies; this may include basic plasters and dressings.

To determine what first aid supplies you need for your workplace, evaluate the first aid needs of your environment. You can also contact our team for some additional information, who can recommend some of the essential first aid supplies you need.

What Is Casualty Simulation Equipment?

Casualty simulation equipment can help to train emergency responders, so this equipment is commonly found in medical environments. However, there are some workplaces that could benefit from these casualty simulators too since it enables trained employees to handle specific emergencies with greater efficiency.

So, if you want to ensure your employees are prepared for a specific emergency, you can certainly make things more realistic with casualty simulation equipment.

What Are First Aid Kits?

First aid kits are pre-made kits containing first aid supplies. As mentioned before, first aid kits vary in size and content, so the first aid kit used at a factory will be different than a first aid kit used at home.

Airway manikins usually have a more elaborate airway simulation system, enabling trainees to train first aid training related to the airways. Rescue manikins on the other hand are designed to provide specific rescue training; this could relate to fire or water.

What Should Be on Your First Aid Supplies Checklist?

Creating your own first aid kit requires some knowledge, because there are some essentials that should be in this kit. Below, we have listed some of the essentials inside your first aid kit, so be sure to obtain them if you are looking to create your kit from scratch.

Plasters

One of the vital additions to your first aid kit is a set of plasters. However, we usually recommend more than one set, preferably in different sizes to accommodate for various scrapes and cuts.

Sterile Gauze Dressings

Dressings should also be in your first aid kit. Gauze dressings can be used for a variety of things; this includes cleaning a wound, keeping burn cream in place, and much more. Therefore, some sterile gauze dressings should undoubtedly be added to your kit.

Antiseptic Cream

One of the most used creams when it comes to emergency situations is the antiseptic cream, so there should be one in your first aid kit. A good antiseptic cream does not have to cost a lot though, because most are quite affordable.

A Thermometer

Another “emergency” tool you will use a lot is a good thermometer. You could consider one of the old-fashioned ones, but a digital one tends to be easier to use. Of course, make sure you have a children’s thermometer in your kit as well as an adult one.

Bandages

You cannot have a good first aid kit without some bandages. They are used in various first aid situations; this includes to stem bleeding, hold dressings in their place, and provide added support. So, this is something that cannot be missing from your first aid kit.

Safety Pins

Every first aid kit should also contain some safety pins. These safety pins are commonly used to keep bandages into place. While you could use some plasters in some situations, you will find that most plasters do not have the strength to provide a long-lasting fix.

Cleansing Wipes

There are several types of cleansing wipes you can add to a first aid kit; this includes antiseptic cleansing wipes and normal cleansing wipes. Naturally, the types of cleansing wipes you will require is the antiseptic kind.

Antiseptic cleansing wipes can be used to clean wounds, cuts, abrasions, scrapes, and more. Of course, antiseptic cleansing wipes can only be used for minor emergencies. Larger wounds and cuts should always be attended by medical professionals.

Sterile Gloves

When you treat a wound, a cut, or an abrasion, it is always recommended to wear some sterile gloves. Direct contact with the wound could cause an infection of the wound, which means complications for the patient. So, be sure to add some sterile gloves to your first aid kit.

Sting Relief

Bug and insect bites are not uncommon and could lead to minor emergencies. Therefore, you should always have some bite and sting relief cream in your first aid kit. There are several types of bite and sting relief creams available, so be sure to choose several if you want to be prepared for every eventuality.

Antihistamines

The final thing you need in any first aid kit is a pack of antihistamines. Since allergies are not uncommon nowadays, a pack of antihistamines ensures you are always prepared for allergy emergencies.
