Antiseptics and disinfectants have always been used for most medical procedures and with good reason. When open cuts or wounds are infected or exposed to contaminated equipment these usually fester and cause greater problems. In extreme cases, infected wounds can cause gangrene, blood poisoning or worse. With that in mind, it is always a good idea to keep both antiseptics and disinfectants in first aid kits. OSHA for their part recommend you have at least .14 fl. oz. in your kit.Antiseptics and Disinfectants should be standard items in any first aid kit to avoid infections or contamination
It is recommended to use antiseptics and disinfectants on both the equipment and the injury before performing any procedure on it. There is a very important reason for this; bacteria or other impurities can infect the wound and cause a far greater problem than the base wound or abrasion. To help avoid this, it is important to keep different kinds of antiseptics and disinfectants on hand so that you can use the appropriate one for the task at hand. So what are you waiting for?
