First Aid

First aid supplies are used to treat minor diseases or injuries that might happen at work, home, or during leisure activities. They are designed to offer instant and short-term relief until trained medical assistance can be obtained.

Typical first aid supplies and techniques include:

  • Bandages are used to dress and protect wounds such as cuts and scratches.
  • Antiseptics are used to disinfect and clean wounds in order to stop infection.
  • Hydration is the process of giving fluids to someone who is dehydrated, suffering from heat exhaustion, or who has had a heat stroke.
  • Bandages and dressings are held in place by adhesive tapes.
  • Reviving someone whose heart has stopped beating or whose respiration has ceased is referred to as resuscitation.
  • When giving first aid, hand wash should be used to stop the spread of infection.
  • To remove debris or pollutants from the eyes, use eye wash.

These and other necessary products may be found in a well-stocked first aid kit, which will enable users to react swiftly and successfully in emergency circumstances.
