Are your travel first aid kit supplies running low? Do you just need something to keep around the house in case of accidents? Here at World Wide Nets you can find a wide range of first aid equipment and travel first aid kits, perfect for trips or even for keeping in the home. All of our travel first aid kits contain comprehensive equipment needed for any trip abroad. The equipment contained in them can be used at home or on your travels.
Accidents can occur wherever you are, so we stock a comprehensive range of equipment that caters for everyone’s needs. Whether at home or abroad, problems can strike at the most unexpected of moments, so it’s best to make sure you have all of the necessary equipment should something go wrong. That’s especially true if you find yourself in a situation where medical help is not readily available. To that end, our range of travel first aid kit includes basic kits such as the Compact First Aid Kit, ideal for holiday or home use, to the Travel Sterile Medical Kits and Travel Dental Kits – both designed for use in emergencies.
These kits are recommended if travelling remotely or to destinations where HIV and Hepatitis are endemic. Our packs are put together by doctors and nurses specialising to travel medicine to ensure they contain the equipment you will need should you get into trouble while travelling abroad. Even if relatively safe areas, it’s a wise precaution to have alcohol wipes with you as superficial wounds (e.g. scratches, cuts, abrasions) can easily become infected in hot climates. Our products will keep you clean, safe and healthy. Where our packs contain needles and other sterile equipment, they come complete with a doctor’s declaration written in several languages explaining their purpose. Should you be stopped at customs, the declaration will explain to the officials that the contents are for the use of medical practitioners. Should you require emergency medical treatment, then the declaration will also explain the purpose of the tools to the doctor treating you.
Even trips at home or within the developed world can pose their own risks. Those attending musical festivals, involved in outdoor sports or on long trips away from home would be well-advised to have medical equipment to hand. Our Waterproof First Aid Kits offer protection against the elements in all sorts of situations; they are popular with cyclists, but are also a good idea if you’re planning to go out kayaking, sailing or even fishing.
In addition, we offer a range of travel aids and treatments which can help tackle some of the common problems encountered by travellers. Regular doses of Bimuno – available in sachets and as pastilles - encourage a healthy gut and can help ward off traveller’s diarrhoea. O.R.S. Electrolyte from Care Plus aids in rehydration; vital if one is to tackle the effects of a hot climate or to replace fluids lost from diarrhoea.
Are you going travelling, but unsure whether you need a sterile first aid kit? You can find the answer by reading our blog. Started by trained travel clinic nurses Jane Bell and Helen Thorpe, it responds to the thoughts and needs of our consumers and contains up to date information on the latest medical equipment available, as well as advice and updates on current medical situations around the world such as cholera, polio and malaria, of which travellers should be aware.
Of course, no equipment can do the job entirely on its own and there are certain other precautions it is sensible to take if you are travelling abroad. Founded in 1991, the Blood Care Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to ensure that properly screened blood is available around the world. When travelling in certain countries, there is a danger of contaminated blood being used in medical procedures. Diseases such as HIV, heptatitis, Chagas disease and malaria can all be spread in this way. It’s a good idea therefore to take a look at the Blood Care Foundation’s website to see where you can access screened blood worldwide should an emergency arise.
