Summer is in full swing with its hot sun and soaring temperatures. It is the time of the year for relaxing in the warmth and going on vacations. Yet, warm weather brings risks of health and safety along with it. Hence, it is appropriate to equip yourself with a summer first aid kit and be aware of the first aid procedures. This keeps you proactively prepared for any seasonal illnesses or injuries that may occur. It is important to keep the kit handy and carry it along while travelling.
With ageing, the body does not adapt itself quickly to changing temperatures and immunity mechanisms are low. This must be particularly true in the context of seniors or patients with chronic illness. Excessive exposure to the sun makes one prone to dehydration, sunstroke and heat exhaustion. So, it is important to use medical transportation services when such elders need to visit a hospital or a care facility for treatment, routine check-ups or emergencies.
Even in non-emergency situations, ambulance transport services can be availed for both short and long-distance travel. These ambulances are adequately equipped with basic medical devices and trained staff. This makes the journey safe and comfortable during the hot season. It also ensures senior’s needs and healthcare contingencies are managed properly.
Contents of the kit should include the following items to ensure safety-
