What is First Aid?
First aid refers to the emergency or immediate care you should provide when a person is injured or ill until full medical treatment is available. For minor conditions, first aid care may be enough. For serious problems, first aid care should be continued until more advanced care becomes available.
FIRST AID KIT
Consider purchasing a commercially available first aid kit or making your own. Having a kit in your home, your car, and at your place of work is essential to stay prepared.
Common items found in a first aid kit are:
Bandages, roller bandages, and tape
Antiseptic wipes and swabs
Mask for breathing (rescue breathing/CPR)
Chemical cold pack
Eyeshield and eyewash
