    Everyday life is always filled with risks, so we are always susceptible to any kind of accident, and many of them can be serious enough to require medical attention. However, when we are far from a medical facility, we must be prepared for any kind of situation.

    That’s why we need to have a first aid kit on hand, so that we can (or someone else can) provide simple and efficient assistance while professional help is on the way, especially because this kind of support can reduce the severity of injuries compared to leaving them untreated.

    How to make a first aid kit without dying in the process?

    However, although it may seem simple to prepare a first aid kit, it is not easy at all, as it must balance effectiveness, weight, and versatility in a space that must be practical and compact.

    For this reason, certain recommendations should be kept in mind when putting together your set of first aid kits, so that you are prepared for anything:

    Choose the right case

    The right case should be airtight and sturdy. If it’s too big, you may fill it with unnecessary items, or otherwise, things may fall out of the kit.

    Equip yourself for anything

    At the very least, each first aid kit should include:

    An emergency phone number directory

    Elastic bandages

    Antibiotic ointment or cream

    Gauze and dressings

    Alcohol and hydrogen peroxide


    CPR mask

    Splints or small boards

    Medical adhesive tape

    Safety pins


    Dental preservation kit

    At least two pairs of gloves

    An up-to-date first aid instructional guide

    Not too many pills

    Contrary to what most people may think, the first aid kit should not contain medications. First and foremost, conditions that require medications should be administered under medical supervision in case of an emergency, to avoid allergic reactions. Secondly, to prevent the misuse of these medicines, as the kits should be easily accessible.

    An exception to this rule is when preparing a specialized kit, taking into account the special needs of family members with you, such as insulin vials for people living with diabetes, but remember not to administer medication without being sure it will not cause an allergic reaction.

    Always have it with you

    Finally, the usefulness of a first aid kit lies in having it available at all times. For this reason, it is best to have more than one kit: Have one at home in an accessible location so that anyone can find it.

    This also includes having a kit for each of your vehicles, so that even when you’re on the road, you can handle any medical emergencies. Likewise, have a small version for when you go on vacation trips.
