Part of managing minor to moderate injuries when delivering first aid should ensure that the risk of infection is significantly reduced. By cleaning a wound with sterile saline, sterile swabs, and then covering the wound with a sterile dressing the risk of infection is immediately reduced.
Dressings and swabs are an essential part of delivering effective first aid. Clear the affected area by using a sterile swab, then cover the wound with an appropriate dressing. At DS Medical, we offer a range of dressing options from plasters, to adhesive and absorbent dressing pads, and specific dressings for eyes, fingers and more.
