Here You Will Find Basic First Aid Information to Help You Get Started
Watch this video below! I have put together a lot of information to enable a beginner to learn about basic first aid.
Here's Your First Article
Much of the basic first aid information on this site may be new to you. It is important that you take your time while reading the different articles. It might also be useful if you make some notes to help you remember certain facts.
Many accidents happen at your house or near by in the yard or garden areas. Learning basic first aid will help you remain relaxed in an emergency when most people would panic. Injuries happen when you least expect them. So therefore having access to a first aid kit is a priority.
But you would be surprised how many parents don't actually have a first aid kit readily at hand. Do you have one? I know when I was at home we had bandages in one draw in the kitchen, plasters in the bathroom along with all sorts of other medications scattered around the house.
I firmly believe that you should have a number of first aid kits in the house in prominent areas like the kitchen, bathroom, garage and shed. Also a first aid kit in your car is vital. I actually have a blanket and waterproofs in my car as well.
A basic first aid kit should contain items that can be used to treat simple injuries whilst also preventing or reducing the chance of infection. A beginners first aid kit should include plasters and dressings along with antibiotics,soothing creams,handy wipes,eyewash cup,thermometer and a pair of scissors. Put all these items in a suitable container with a first aid label on the outside.
You can create your own list of items depending on where you live and what activity takes place there. iI is a good idea to write a list of what you have in your first aid kit box and stick onto the lid. So you can always make sure the contents are complete. You can also add to the list as your basic knowledge of first aid improves.
One final thought, CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation). Though it's true you might never need to use first aid CPR in your life, it can't hurt to learn this life saving skill. While the process of CPR has changed over the years, it is still considered the first line of defense for those victims of heart attacks or other heart stopping illnesses.There are many cpr courses run by your local fire departments.Why not join a class, better still enroll your whole family.The classes are great fun and you never know when you could be called upon to save someone's life.
But for the moment...
