What YOU Should Have In Your First Aid Kit || Real Doctor’s Opinion

Video taken from the channel: Doctor Crystal MD


Your first aid toolkit should include: Two pairs of sterile gloves (avoid latex if your family has latex allergies) Sterile dressings to stop bleeding; Soap and antibiotic towelettes to disinfect; Antibiotic ointment to prevent infection; Burn ointment to prevent infection; Adhesive bandages in various sizes. 1 23 First Aid Kit Essentials Every Mom Needs To Have; 2 Where Do I Keep The First Aid Kit Essentials? 3 When Am I supposed to Restock it? 4 23 First Aid Kit Essentials Every Mom Needs To Have; 5 First Aid Kit Container/Box; 6 Adhesive and Ace Bandages; 7 Hand Sanitizer; 8 Alcohol Wipes; 9 Ibuprofen and Tylenol; 10 Sterile Gauze; 11 Numbing Spray; 12 Adhesive Tape. This doesn’t mean you have to operate a small hospital, but here are 10 first aid items that every mom should have.

Prescription medication If your child has recurring allergies or asthma attacks that require a prescription, you need to be prepared. Must-Have Basics Antibiotic Ointment: While many believe that hydrogen peroxide is needed to clean out cuts, simply having triple Band-Aids or Non-adherent Pads: These should be applied over an open wound to prevent foreign debris from entering and Tweezers: In the event a foreign materia. Non-latex gloves (2 pairs) Hydrocortisone ointment (2 packets) Breathing barrier (1) Emergency blanket (1) Gathering all of these supplies can be intimidating especially when some of these words may seem foreign. A great tip for gathering all of these supplies is to order in bulk. Home kit contents: A household first aid kit should include these 16 items.

Adhesive tape. Anesthetic spray ( Bactine) or lotion ( Calamine, Campho-Phenique) for itching rashes and insect bites. 4″ x 4″ sterile gauze pads for covering and cleaning wounds, as a soft eye patch.

A typical first aid kit provides only the bare minimum of supplies that a well-equipped home should have when it comes to health and medicine. After giving this a good deal of thought, here are 23 additional medical supplies you should have on hand. Some will be easy to acquire, while others may take more effort. The five most important items for any first aid kit are: Bandages and dressings –a few adhesive bandages and gauze dressings to cover wounds. Antibiotic cream – check the expiration date.

Scissors to cut dressings, clothing, rope, seatbelts and more. When things get backed up, head straight for the LaVie Lactation Massager, the first-ever milk expression aid. It uses gentle vibrations to loosen plugged ducts and get your milk flowing again.

Moms love: LaVie Lactation Massager, $35, Amazon.com. First aid kits come in varying sizes, and some are bare bones while others, like this nurse’s first aid kit, cover every emergency imaginable— mine falls somewhere in between. In addition to all the well known, typical first aid items, there are six items I highly recommend to everyone creating a first aid kit.

Supplies in a first aid kit should be customized to include those items likely to be used on a regular basis.

  • “One of the athletic trainers just texted me.” As an athletic trainer, I am guilty of accidentally texting my doctors at inopportune times lol.

  • Hey Doc, have you heard about these new “zip-tie” sutures? They’re supposedly far tighter than traditional, and you don’t need a degree in sewing to use em. They’re like $24 a piece.

  • Dr. Crystal, you talked about the ibuprofen. And about as a grown adult having to take 3 to 4 tablets. But what dose are you talking about? Here in the Netherlands we have different doses. And currently I have doses of 400mg of ibuprofen. How much should I take with this dose? I don’t use it often. Mostly I use paracetamol (I guess the Dutch / European version of Tylenol?) or for back pains naproxen. When I use ibuprofen I usually combine it with paracetamol. Is this good too?
    And as far as I know, if you take ibuprofen a lot, you’ll also need a medicine to protect your stomach. Though I don’t have to worry about this. Since I use one everyday because of all my other medications due to my chronic illnesses. But maybe a good addition to tell if you take ibuprofen for a longer time?

  • Love your videos! Watching this one made me realize I haven’t looked in my kit in a while. But right off the bat I know I have Zofran, trauma shears, kerlix guaze roll, amongst other things �� I am gonna go hiking in the Colorado wilderness soon, so gotta have my ER with me and my mates

  • Also she means several 200mg ibuprofen. Don’t take several 600mgs your duodenum will bleed and you may get peptic ulcer disease or ulcerative colitis.

  • I am not a adult but I go down to a creek with my friends we slip on rocks and I
    Have some of this stuff in it but idk what to give to a 11 year old girl or a 7 year old boy or me a 10 year old male

  • The medical version of superglue especially designed for bonding skin is better than normal superglue as the regular version gets hot when it cures and reacts to moisture by instant curing and can be painful.

    I use dermabond brand and it is purple coloured for easy identification against the area of skin it is applied to.

  • Enjoyed the video. Couple things that might be nice, ammonia inhalant, small scissors. And a bp cuff, if only for slowing down severe bleeding maybe. Mom had a trick for splinters. Take a small piece of raw potato and place it on the splinter overnight. Draws it right to the surface, have no idea why.

  • Now i feel like teh uncool kid because i only have the good old Hansaplast Bandaids. For thsoe who dont know them. Its basically those brown ones that stick like its super glue on them.

    Heat Packs ah yes i steal…. i mean i acquire them from my workplace.

    In my “first Aid Kit” is also that Eye gel stuff, but thats because im welding at Work. Also its not in the First aid kit but in the freezer because my Eye Doctor told me i shall keep that stuff cold.
    And before i get scolded. I use them so i can sleep at night and open my eyes the next day. I ofc go see the doctor if i flash burn my eyes.
    And also while im at it. That potato trick the “old Welders” tell everyone. Doesnt work, tried it.

  • I always keep a combat medical kit handy. Old habit. Super glue I’m familar with. Quick clot should be kept on hand. You never know when that will come in handy. Burn medicine, spray or ointment.If your in an area were there is snakes, a snake bite kit. Iodine, dehydration tablets for hot weather. Razor blades, ammonium nitrate caplets for coming around. Diarrhea meds. Preferably pill or caplet form. Scissors, Dental floss,Band Aids. The usual stuff. I also keep a tube of zinc oxide with it for skin raahes or itching. That’s just me from habit. You can adjust to suit. Of course you can buy the ready made kits for home use. Plus a small book on first aid and read it from time to time to stay familiar. Running late again.�� See you next week.

  • Bottle of high proof whiskey
    Sewing needle and dental floss
    Rags
    Medical tape
    18g syringes
    Liquid diphenhydramine
    Splints
    Scalpel or any knife
    Lighter
    Saline solution

  • I hope you will react to Final Destination 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 death scenes XD jk im not forcing you. I know its scary im sorry for being annoying.

  • Allergy meds are a life long search, you try one after another until you find the right one…took me my whole childhood, but finally figured out Fexofenadine (Allegra) works best. Although I think age has helped alot as well…and you meant to say “They are very handy.” The much was too much.

  • I have to admit that literally looked just like the content of the first aid kit at my place of work. I have watched quite a few first aid kit videos lately most of them were quite comprehensive but the most common thing they had in common was that they all had some form of medication such as pain killer and anti inflationary and so on
