A first aid kit contains essential supplies for the treating of burns, cuts, fractures and other common injuries. Assemble your own first aid kit, customise the contents according to your family’s needs, and refresh the supplies regularly.
My First Aid Handbook provides step-by-step guides on how to treat common home injuries such as bleeding, burns and scalds. It also details the steps to take when someone has a seizure, stroke, cardiac arrest or is choking.
In the event that someone has a cardiac arrest, responding early with chest compressions and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) can greatly increase a person's chance of survival. Learn how to restart a heart. Every household should have at least one member equipped with life-saving skills.
