Understanding Your First Aid Kit Contents
Green First Aid Kit

Every commercial first aid kit lists basically the same contents

(c) Rod Brouhard
Every first aid kit lists basically the same items on the box. If you find yourself with one of those boxes in your closet, car, RV, or luggage, you may have wondered what you are supposed to do with each item during the very emergency for which it was designed. The following are descriptions and uses of the most common first aid kit contents.

This list is not exhaustive and these descriptions are for informational use only. You should get appropriate training in first aid and CPR before you are called upon to help someone in a time of need with any of the items listed here.
