Things You Should Have In Your First Aid Kits

First aid kits are a must in every place. The contents of a basic first aid kit are more or less the same. In case of emergencies, they are convenient. They also go by other names like an emergency kit or medical kit. In cases of accidents, cuts, burns, and other significant injuries, the supplies in the medical kit can temporarily take care of the victim, until additional help arrives or they reach the hospital.

The modern office is fraught with splinters. Due to the profusion of Ikea, all modern office furniture will disintegrate in a manner of months, turning your comfy desk into a pile of fiberglass-like wood scrap. Keep these close at hand; you will need them.

Whether it’s the office coffeepot exploding in your hand due to a factory defect or a gnarly paper-cut, being able to clean a wound effectively is very useful. Use this for washing and disinfecting wounds or small cuts.

Compression bandages will also slow down or stop bleeding via compression. Don’t wrap it around the wound too tightly as this can cause damage to the limb.

Ninety percent of functional medicine is the practical application and use of cotton balls. A confident office medic knows how to use cotton balls as well as she knows how to use an ergonomically designed keyboard.

Suppose your boss has fallen while rocking backward in a meeting and hit her head. A bump is forming quickly, but you stay calm. You reach into the first aid kit and confidently pull out an instant cold pack, crush it into an activated state, and hand it to her. You’ve saved the meeting and have your superior’s gratitude.

Additional Things And Benefits

You see Big Bob collapse in a heap at the annual potluck. Thinking quickly, you mutter to yourself, “oh god, Tony’s peanut butter brownies.” Big Bob loves brownies and must have eaten them without asking about their ingredients; Bob is deathly allergic to peanuts. “Little Bobby and Bobbina are not going to go to bed fatherless tonight,” you think to yourself as you sprint to the first aid box. Tearing it off the wall, you instantly locate the EpiPen, unwrap it, and jam it into Bob’s thigh. His eyes open, and he sucks in air. His throat is open. You have saved Bob from the consequences of his almost deadly assumption.

The founder of your company, an energetic eight-year-old, is coming for a visit. As he prepares to give his address at the podium in the auditorium in which you are all gathered, he suddenly clutches his chest going into shock. Again, you spring into action. You open your AED (placed in an easily accessible location), remove the contact pads, and follow the instructions that the recorded voice is explaining to you. You rip open his shirt, apply the pads, and the machine takes over. Before you know it, your beloved founder is opening his eyes and whispering, “thank you.”
