How do I keep my first aid kit well stocked?
Always have a well-stocked first aid kit in your home or car. You can buy ready-made kits or you can make and stock one yourself from your local pharmacy. According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, a good home first aid kit should contain at least the following:
Stock both pediatric and adult doses of medications, as well as a children’s dosing syringe.
You may also consider taking a first aid course or learning CPR. You can check with the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association about classes near you.
Medical emergencies are stressful enough. This little bit of planning and preparation can give you some peace of mind and allow you to remain a bit calmer in the event of an emergency.
