The Importance Of First Aid Supplies

Undeniably, as a fact of life, injuries happen-at home, work, during holidays, on the road, at sports events or when you are out with family and friends. Even if you are experiencing it as a bystander, unarguably, an accident is not a pleasant scene at all.

At its most basic, first aid during an emergency is the immediate assistance provided to a victim of illness or injury. It involves relatively simple procedures which can be carried out with rudimentary equipment. Usually, first aid is performed by a layperson until quick medical assistance arrives.

Where natural disasters occur in your environment, it is essential to be prepared and often there are local laws to enforce this where instances such as earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes are common. For other less dramatic but natural instances, even as slight as rain or snow, there is still an increase in the chances of an accident that requires first aid.

While ensuring that you and your family are always prepared for an emergency, having knowledge and in date first-aid supplies is a wise decision that could potentially save lives. However, it is not always possible to carry one around on your person which is often when a lot of accidents happen.

Which is why last year a 14-year-old, Opelika student, got a patent for his first aid vending machines. While he was an eighth-grader at Opelika Middle Scholl, Taylor coined the bright idea for first aid vending machines during his Young Entrepreneurs Academy class which is sponsored by the Opelika Chamber of Commerce. Taylor, now serves as CEO and FOUNDER of RecMed, a first-aid vending machine firm set to revolutionise first aid and health and safety in public places.

For many who have not experienced the importance of first-aid, the main benefits include the following:

1. Preventing permanent disablement

A trained personnel would know how to prevent the situation from being worse. A necessary first aid supplies are very essential during this situation. They will give temporary treatment that will keep the condition of the injured person from deteriorating until professional assistance arrives.

2. Saving lives

First aid supplies help people with the capacity to assist during different emergency situations. If someone suffers from health-related issues such as a heart attack, or swallows hazardous substance, or if a natural disaster happens, a person who is knowledgeable about first aid becomes more than only another bystander.

In fact, they become an invaluable support required, not for victims, but also to medical practitioners and professional emergency responders.

3. Proper methods of administering medical help

First aid supplies help to make sure the correct methods of administering medical help are given. Understanding how to assist a person is just as essential in emergency situations. It will only take 6 minutes for the human brain to expire due to insufficient oxygen!

Therefore, misinformation and ineptitude will not help any person in need of immediate medical assistance. First aid supplies can help to avoid any misinformation.

4. Individual benefits

Knowledge in first aid supplies also helps the individual themselves. Whether the emergency affects them directly or involves people they work and live with, first aid supplies the severity of an emergency in a given place and place.

Without the proper first aid supplies, a simple injury could quickly deteriorate. Several fatalities resulting from emergency situations and accidents occur from lack of quick medical treatment and first aid supplies. For this reason, the introduction of first aid vending machines is an innovative idea that could vastly improve first aid response times and save lives.
