The importance of a First Aid kit may not be underestimated. An accident may always be around the corner, whether it is on your travels, in and around your house, or during an outdoor sport. Because of this it is very important to have a First Aid kit nearby. In a humid climate in the (sub) tropics in particular, the wounds will get infected quickly. A small wound can have awful consequences and therefore good care of the wound is always necessary.
As extra, nearly all Care Plus First Aid Kits (all except the Care Plus First Aid Kit Basic, because of the weight and price) include the “Care Plus First Aid Guide”. This 40-page guide contains valuable First Aid information and tips from medical professionals, written by R. Hulseboch. The booklet describes specific medical situations, how to deal with them and which First Aid articles from the kit are to be used to treat the victim. A few examples of situations explained in the guide: basic First Aid rules, the Heimlich manoeuvre and Rautek grip, reanimation, how to treat a wound and with which bandage, etc. On the back of the packaging of our First Aid Kits, you will find a four-language list of the contents in words and images. The bags of our First Aid Kits also provide space for your own items, such as medication.
This kit is the latest in the World & Travel series of products and it has been specially designed for people travelling in regions where medical care is poor. Such travellers not only need a basic set of dressings and First Aid material, they should also have a variety of needles and other sterile material. This kit contains all the necessary First Aid material packaged in a strong nylon case. When you are treated at the Emergency Room at your destination, you can give this First Aid Kit to the medical staff to work with.
The medical facilities in the country of destination are not always up to the standard we are used to at home. Sterile needles, syringes and other medical equipment may be scarce. If you leave a country or region where medical facilities are under the standard, you might want to leave the First Aid Kit behind so they can help other patients in the future.
