Compact First Aid Kit Review
Once upon a time, first aid simply meant being the first to arrive at the scene of an accident. Today, with this assorted mini first aid kit, you can actually be of help to others and to yourself. Let’s face it, not every mishap will be emergency room-worthy, but that doesn’t mean they should go unattended, especially if your family or friends are involved. This kit enables you to take charge of those situations that, while not life-or-death, do require a steady hand holding the appropriate implement. Here you will find pretty much everything you need to rise to those occasions.
This kit is so small that it can fit inside a desk drawer or a glove compartment, but it actually holds 37 first aid items. It’s almost as if it was larger on the inside than on the outside. Some of those items are 20 large and medium adhesive bandages, one butterfly closure, 2 gauze and 2 alcohol pads, and 10 cotton swabs. Thus equipped, you’re ready to treat minor and deeper cuts, scrapes, insect bites and stings, and burns. The case itself is durable yet portable, and colorful so that it can be easily spotted.
It wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep a few of these first aid kits around the house, strategically located in accident-prone rooms. The kitchen, the bathroom and the garage are some of the areas where timely first-aid can come in pretty handy. A car isn’t complete without one of these either; both as a permanent addition but also to bring along on road trips and vacations. If you’re flying, packing up a kit will take little time and less space. You never know when you’re going to need a gauze pad or a bandage, so as they say, better safe than sorry.
Here’s one final word to the wise. This is undoubtedly a very complete first aid kit. Probably the only thing it’s missing is the ability to dispense first aid itself. But since it doesn’t, you would do well to take a few basic courses to complement your physical supplies with some theoretical knowledge. Remember that first aid consists of very simple techniques, but which can actually save lives in some cases. First aid training will make sure that you will be able to use the contents of this kit the way that they were intended to.
