Did you know around 4,500 fire and burn deaths are recorded every year in the US? Lack of immediate medical help is one of the main factors responsible for these deaths. Many people find themselves ill-equipped to handle medical emergencies.
Knowledge and understanding of first-aid can go a long way when it comes to helping a person who’s suffered a burn injury, heat stroke or any other type of injury. For businesses as well as homeowners, it is important to keep the first-aid kit handy. However, many people have little knowledge of the things that should be kept in the first-aid box. Apart from adhesive bandages and antibiotic ointment packets, it is important to keep many other things in the first-aid kit. These include sterile gauze pads, tweezers, oral thermometer, bandages etc.
Most importantly, it is essential to be well-aware of the first-aid emergency treatments. Awareness about how to treat common medical conditions can go a long way when it comes to saving the life of an individual and helping him recover quickly.
