Pro vs. Standard
My Medic divides its first aid kits into ‘Standard’ and ‘Pro’ so you can quickly understand how a specific kit can help you. Both are phenomenal kits that can help you and those in your life, but the difference is in how they will help you. So, what differentiates the two?
These kits include numerous supplies to help you address common everyday injuries like bumps, bruises, and various other minor injuries. They include items such as bandages, basic medications, topical ointments, gauze, and saline wash. If you’ve got a wild child or a clumsy friend, a Standard kit’s contents will be something you absolutely want to keep on hand.
A Pro kit is built differently than a Standard. All Pro kits contain the essential gear necessary for you to save a life, whether it be your own or another’s. Pro-level supplies can include:
- Chest Seals
- Emergency Pressure Bandages
- Hemostatic Gauze
- Space Blankets
- Glucose Gel
While contents vary depending on the kit and its intended activity, all Pro kits have life-saving supplies that will prolong life until the patient can reach the next echelon of care plus everything that’s included in the Standard.
The difference between a Standard and a Pro kit is simple. A Standard kit will keep a cut or sprain from ruining your day. A Pro kit will keep a laceration or other severe injury from ruining your life. Don’t let life catch you off guard and grab a life-saving first aid kit today! It’s far better to be prepared than to have regrets when you need it.
