First Aid

First Aid is referred to as the first step of treatment that involves cleaning the wound, stopping the bleeding, and covering the wound to protect it from contamination and further damage. Different countries and institutions have different rules of first aid, but almost all of them use the same set of first aid products. Proper rules of first aid were first established in the Hellenistic period but now have gone on to become one of the first things a medical professional learns. They can be administered by a common person as well if basic instructions are followed. A first aid kit is used to administer the basic first aid a person requires. At Shop Wound Care we have the perfect first aid products from top selling brands such as Medline, Johnson and Johnson, Acelity, etc.
