Who hasn’t felt unequipped when faced with an incident affecting one’s health or that of a loved one? A simple cut, scrape or insect bite can turn into a mini drama if you don’t know how to react or if you don’t have the necessary first aid products.
Despite all the precautions you may take, you will all be faced with some bad luck at one time or another. It’s better to be prepared to take action by putting together or purchasing a first aid kit.
The list of items we are suggesting below, was developed from a broad base perspective. You can adapt it according to context of use. It should be noted that it is also possible to purchase a pre-assembled first aid kit.
It is important to include any medication in a first aid kit that may be necessary for a specific person depending on his/her health, for example:
The place where you keep your first aid kit should be easily accessible and known by everyone. It can sometimes be beneficial to have several first aid kits so you always have one at hand where small incidents are most likely to happen: at home, at the country house, camping, at the office, etc.
It is generally not recommended to keep your first aid kit in your car or any other vehicle because it is likely to be exposed to significant temperature variations and humidity which can compromise the effectiveness of certain products, such as medications.
For optimal use, you should have a good idea of the contents of your first aid kit. Make sure you know when and how to use each item it contains. It may be useful for you to make a list and summarize the user instructions. Your pharmacist can help you write up this list.
In fact, you should review the contents of your first aid kit periodically, ideally, at least once a year (or at the beginning of each season), to ensure that you have everything you need and that the products have not expired or been damaged. This exercise will also help refresh your memory. Talk to your loved ones about the fact that there is a first aid kit and where it is stored, and explain its contents to them and how to use them.
Here is some important advice:
Don’t hesitate to speak to your pharmacist for information about first aid.
