Home First Aid Kits: Do You Have All You Need?
You know you have a first aid kit, but is it up-to-date? And, do you know the best way to use it?

Band-aids, antiseptic wipes and burn creams are included in most first aid kits, but is that enough?

It seems children are always in need of first aid; relieving pain and preventing infections are first priority.

Fortunately, most minor injuries are simple to treat... so simple, in fact, that you can find all of the materials that you need in a well-stocked first aid kit.

Listen in as Dr. Elizabeth Murray discusses the necessary items for your first aid kit so you can aid your child effectively when he's found that prickly bush or hot stove-top.
