The holidays are here and with them the plans to travel to take advantage of the rest days. However, it is important to be preventive and carry a travel kit with basic items to prevent unforeseen and controllable situations from becoming emergencies.
At any time while you are traveling, you or a loved one may have an adverse situation that requires the application of first aid knowledge and the use of equipment to treat them. For example, wounds, blows, embedding of foreign bodies in the skin and among others Medicaid.
What are the basic supplies that a travel first aid kit should have?
Medicines in case of allergies or illnesses
For cleaning wounds: Antibacterial liquid soap, gauzes and sterile dressings, adhesive tape. Gloves, alcohol pads (to clean your hands before handling a wound).
- Pair of scissors
- Malleable ferrules
If you do not have knowledge on how to deal with these situations, it is recommended to have a printed first aid manual, in addition to the number of Medical Emergencies in case the situation requires taking other measures.

On the other hand, we recommend that the first aid kit be made of a durable and spacious material, easy to open and should be stored in a place that is known by all, in addition to being checked every time you go on a trip, to replace what is used or that is expired or in poor condition.
Our advice is that when an accident occurs, the first and most important thing is to remain calm, not to expose yourself to what caused the accident, since we do not want you to become a second injured person.
Always try to show empathy with the person involved. Stay up-to-date through the Medical Emergencies blog on how to handle minor injury situations.
