    • Why Buy a Business First Aid Kit for Home?

      If you want a "Pretty" first aid kit, by all means, purchase a consumer first aid kit - but if you want a first aid kit for function, consider business first aid kits for home, too.

      We've been selling first aid kits for a long, long time... we have a good handle on what people want and what they need. If you have a specific personal use for your first aid kit, then by all means looks at specific use kits that are designed for that use ( see our list below ) these really do have special content for special purposes, but if you are thinking of an all purpose first aid kit for home, we encourage you to consider a commercial first aid kit.

      Why?

      urg-3681-best-selling-first-aid-kit-items-press-releaseConsumer kits are often designed for "curb appeal" rather than actual usefulness or practical application. More money goes into packaging or high "piece count" than into including what you will really need when emergencies occur.

      Commercial First Aid Kits comply with OSHA requirements and ANSI Standards (OSHA regulations cite the ANSI Standards as their basic guidelines - learn more about the current ANSI Z308 Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies)

      This means the contents have been analyzed and decided upon so the first aid kits will have the content required to attend to the most common injuries - not just what sounds neat. When buying an ANSI compliant first aid kit, you know that the assortment and quantity of supplies included in a first aid kit were chosen based upon a review of increased workplace incidents requiring first aid treatment, similar international standards and current practices in treating injuries. so the decisions on content come from real-life needs.

      An American National Standard implies a consensus of those substantially concerned with its scope and provisions. An American National Standard is intended as a guide to aid the manufacturer, the consumer, and general public. The existence of an American National Standard does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether he has approved the standard or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standard. American National Standards are subject to periodic review and users are cautioned to obtain the latest edition.

      Now - knowing why we suggest this, we'll make our recommendation for the "best first aid kit":

    • Do First Aid Kits Save Lives?

      First-Aid-KitsWe often think of first aid kits as a convenience for when you get a scratch of bump. Often when thinking of a personal first aid kit, we think of band-aids. In the workplace, we think of OSHA requirements. But First Aid Kits are so much more.

      First Aid Kits save lives every day.

      Since our sessions at the White House this year, working on developing the Stop The Bleed Campaign, we've talked a lot about the importance of bleeding control. A good first aid kit has the items necessary to tend to serious bleeding - which can kill faster than heart attack or stroke. It has other critical items, too.

      Infection control is a serious concern with wounds, as is healing.

      Eye Injuries can cause permanent disability.

      Burns can cause disfigurement and death.

      Having a good first aid kit and knowing how to use a first aid kit is essential to your safety and those around you.

      Best waterproof camping, hiking and outdoor kit on the market! Best waterproof camping, hiking and outdoor kit on the market!

      Why are the Ultralight / Watertight First Aid Kits so Special?
      Jason Cartwright, President of Adventure Medical Kits makes it very clear - "We DO test our kits and the Ultralight and Watertight series, not only internally, but we have professionals test them as well:

      The Ultralight / Watertight .9 has been tested, abused, and approved by adventure racers in the Eco Challenge, Primal Quest, and Raid Gauloises.

      ...If you are familiar with Adventure Racing, our kits are the official kits of adventure racers.  They race through any climate, multiple challenges (paddling, running, biking, climbing, etc) and I have personally spoken to many of the teams who have praised our kits for being waterproof.  I have witnessed some of our testing which has included submerging the kit in a 5 gallon bucket of water for over a week and everything inside staying dry.  We also take a lot of pride in our materials and we have waterproof coating on the ULWT series bags.  The zipper is the one place that could leak, but with the waterproof bag materials and the dryflex bag inside (if properly sealed) ensure that the contents will stay dry.

      The dryflex bag is the real key to the kit being watertight and if sealed properly, is basically waterproof.

      This is one of our most reviewed and most popular series of kits and a kit series doesn’t become that popular by under delivering on its brand promise.

      Ultralight backpacking is a style of backpacking that emphasizes carrying the lightest and simplest kit safely possible for a given trip. This style has now spread to kayaking enthusiasts, and other rugged outdoor adventurers that rely on their own skills for survival.. bringing on the essentials along, an ultralight hiker or climber can be prepared, but no be bogged down with excessive gear. Base pack weight (the weight of a backpack plus the gear inside, excluding consumables such as food, water, and fuel, which vary depending on the duration and style of trip) is reduced as much as safely possible, though reduction of the weight of consumables is also applied.

    • Backwoods First Aid Kit

      While we aren't all outdoor adventurers, nor Militia trained for rugged outdoor survival, it still makes sense to follow the guidelines learned and shared by those that have served in our Military . Here are some suggestions from a Responder offered in the Military Times:

      Get your own Professional Quality Medical First Aid Kit! Get your own Professional Quality Medical First Aid Kit!

      I’m heading out for a couple of days of backpacking with my son and had to throw together a suitable first aid kit. Considering the activity and the scope of my training as an emergency medical responder (EMR), I chose a bit more than a handful of gear that I could use to treat just about any traumatic injury we might encounter on the trail. I’ve centered on slip and fall injuries: scratches, lacerations, sprains, strains, fractures and head injuries. All the things that would result from taking a tumble down a slope.

      It’s unlikely we’ll encounter a gunshot wound since it’s far from hunting season, but I’ve got some clotting agent, packing gauze and an Israeli bandage in there that I can use for other things while still being prepared for the unexpected.

      I could probably use my Leatherman in place of the trauma shears, but I’d rather keep all the first aid gear together. Plus, I can just toss the $5 shears if they get covered in blood instead of having to deal with toting back and sterilizing a bloody Leatherman.

      Neither my son nor I is diabetic, but you never know who you’ll find on the trail, ergo the glucose.

      I tried shoving everything into a MOLLE first aid pouch and nearly got everything in before I noticed I forgot the SAM splint. I ended up digging out a Mayflower Research and Consulting small GP Utility Bag, and everything fit perfectly. With all the gear packed in there comfortably, the bag is a little slimmer, but a little longer than a Nerf football.

      I found the bag’s longish webbing handles a great way to keep the first aid bag accessible. My pack is a front loader, so I shoved the first aid bag in and to one side and zipped the pack so that one of the first aid bag handles stuck out. I clipped a plastic ITW ‘biner on it to keep it from slipping back inside. This setup makes it easy to locate, grab and pull out the first aid kit.

      Here’s a list of what’s in my kit. Keep in mind, this is not a general-purpose kit. It’s filled with equipment that I’m comfortable using, and it’s tailored to treat injuries and illnesses I’m likely to encounter according to my standard of training. Your mileage may vary.

      Full size CPR/O2 mask, 3″ roll gauze, glucose, cravats, SWAT-T tourniquet, gloves, compact aid kit (includes band-aids, safety pins, aspirin, antibiotic ointment, tick puller, signal mirror and whistle), compressed gauze, nasopharyngeal airway and lubricant, SAM splint, QuikClot sport, trauma shears, Israeli bandage.

    • A One-Handed First Aid Kit - Great for treating an arm, hand, or wrist injury!

      A First Aid Kit That’s Designed For One-Handed Use

      We think this is a brilliant idea - it is ideal for treating an injury to arm, wrist, hand or finger - and also a great tool for those with partial mobility impairment. We are looking forward to this product being produced and hope to offer it when it is available!

      1-hand-1Gabriele Meldaikyte spent the past year studying a ubiquitous affliction that she calls “one-handedness.” The recent Royal College of Art grad began her exploration by redesigning inconvenient packaging that all but requires the use of our non-dentist-approved “third hands" (your teeth) to open. Though we may be highly efficient multitaskers at our best, when hurt we could all benefit from a bit of an assist.

      First consider all the non-emergency situations in which you’re stuck navigating life single-handedly: cradling a baby in the crook of your arm while1-hand-2 heating milk on the stove, carrying a salad bowl from the kitchen to the dining room while trying to shake open a bag of croutons, or fumbling with your smartphone. (Granted, we should slow down.) A tool crafted to complement one-handed actions would make life easier, true. More importantly, it would have obvious implications for folks with grip issues or other disabilities.

      1-hand-3Meldaikyte compiled a collection of these “stories” as part of her research, then chose to focus on what she found most problematic: first aid kits.

      A close examination of kits on the market revealed a strangely out-of-date supply of incongruous items. Sure, gloves make sense for the times when you’re tending to others, but safety pins? Spilling those on the floor may just complicate what’s already undoubtedly a tense situation. Ultimately, though, it wasn’t the supplies that Meldaikyte found most concerning. “The biggest issue to me was that there is no system,” she tells Co.Design.

      The brain does strange things when confronted with big-time pain. You can read or 1-hand-4rationalize about how to react, but real-time throbbing or blistering pain zooms the mind into an echo chamber where the only thing that registers is your own voice screaming. So Meldaikyte got first-aid trained, and set out to simplify the sets in a variety of ways to make quick thinking (and taking action) easier for the wounded. Everything in her kit can be unwrapped and used with one hand only.

      1-hand-7Components are color coded: burns and scalds in yellow, minor scratches in orange, and the serious uh-ohs (deep, bleeding cuts) are rendered in red. You’re likely to be well aware of what you’re dealing with, but if you’re unsure which category your mishap falls into, you can peruse Meldaikyte’s description of each injury and the step-by-step how-to for treatment, which are clearly expressed through self-explanatory pictograms.

      This incorporation of the functional trifecta of “communication, information, and navigation”1-hand-5 is where Meldaikyte thrives. Her previous Multi-Touch Gestures turned the physical movements we use to control our iPhones into interactive sculptural machines. As of now, her First-Aid Kit is just a prototype, but one that proposes an important rethinking of issues ranging from self-sufficiency to how we’re expected to interact with products. This product, the designer hopes, anticipates reactions to emergencies in ways that are designed to give you relief fast.

       

       

       

    • Summer First Aid - Update your First Aid Kit for Summertime needs!

      As the Plain Dealer puts it, No season is without its risk of injury, of course, and so it's always a good idea to keep your first-aid kit stocked and handy. But in the summertime we're more active and therefore more injury-prone. We're also lighting things such as grills and fireworks (see below). Summer is the season of accidental burn injuries.

      The latest edition of PDIY covers a few smart tips on restocking and maintaining your first-aid kit for the season.

      Summer First Aid Kit Summer First Aid Kit
      First Aid Kits come in all shapes and sizes! First Aid Kits come in all shapes and sizes!

      As the graphic mentions, we're not doctors and we don't fool around with serious injuries. If you burn yourself or hurt yourself to any serious extent, get yourself to an emergency room or urgent-care center immediately.

    • OnStar for CPR?

      Well now that your Car will talk you through diving CPR... all you need is a good Auto First Aid Kit and to learn how to use it! Right?

      Watch this 22 minute Free First Aid Video Video "How to Use Your First Aid Kit... What Your First Aid Course Didn't Teach You"

      OnStar Gets Emergency Medical Accreditation

      OnStar_CtrOfExcellence01-medium
      OnStar's advisors have helped deliver babies, administer CPR instructions and dole out post-car-accident advice, all before medical help arrives. It turns out they know what they're talking about. GM's safety and communication service has been certified by the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch as a Medical Accredited Center of Excellence. It's the first non-emergency, private company to gain the status.

      With the push of OnStar's First Assist system button, motorists in trouble have access to advisors who receive special training that includes weeks of emergency courses, CPR training and IAED certification. The company first started offering the service in 2010, and according to GM, it's used about 1,200 times every month. In OnStar's 17-year history, the agency reports it's responded to nearly 2 million emergency service calls.

      "The fact that our emergency advisors are able to offer instructions that meet the rigorous standards set by the IAED is a testament to how seriously we take this responsibility to help our customers and how hard these advisors work," Terry Inch, chief operating officer of GM Global Connected Consumer, said in a statement.

      But won't the call center operators at 911 offer similar medical guidance until help arrives? According to Stefan Cross of OnStar Global Communications, not always because not all 911 call centers are equipped to offer emergency services over the phone. He told Cars.com that only about half of all 911 call centers in the U.S. offer emergency medical services and less than 5% of those are actually accredited. Cross said it's a problem many rural areas face; many call centers are only able to comfort accident victims until help arrives.

      "With OnStar's First Assist, now anyone with access to OnStar is ensured that no matter where they are, they have access to a trained, certified EMD advisor who can offer crucial medical guidance in situations that range from excessive bleeding to choking to a poisonous snake bite," Cross said.
