First Aid At Home

Having a daughter who is diagnosed to have asthma by the age of 4, we have learned to watch out for the symptoms of an asthma attack. It is important to be aware of the symptoms so we can prevent imminent danger from happening. Having a hubby who is diabetic also made us more careful with our food choices. My little boy is prone to accidents since he likes to play sports. knowing all of these variables, we know that we have to expand our home’s first aid kit since we have special medical conditions to consider.

Our basic first aid kit usually contains:
> Antiseptic wash
> Gauze Pad
> Adhesive Tape
> Hot and Cold Packs
> Scissors
> Plasters
> Thermometer
> Skin Rash Cream
> Ventolin Inhaler
> Anti histamine tablets
> Insulin vials
> Needles

It is not enough to have supplies at home. One also needs to know where are the nearest pharmacy stores in case you need to find a medicine over the counter. I am glad that there are online stores where we can buy medicine anytime like the Canada drug pharmacy. There are other pharmacy stores which are physically open 24 hours a day as well.

Knowing who and what numbers to call are equally as important as well. It is a good practice to have your important numbers saved in your cellphone or written down on a paper where you can easily see.

Accidents and emergencies happen when we least expect it. It is best to be prepared. Do you have any other first aid tips you can share with us?
