First Aid

First aid is the initial medical assistance given to a person suffering from a sudden injury or ailment before further medical treatment is provided. The key aim of providing first aid is to minimize the threat of death from serious injuries or diseases, or prevent the condition from worsening if immediate medical help is not available and promoting recovery. In cases of minor injuries first aid itself may be sufficient to heal the injury while in more severe cases immediate medical help is required. First aid products are required at homes, in schools or medical facilities to address small injuries. At HPFY, we offer a wide range of products that are used for first aid from top manufacturers like Medline Industries, Johnson & Johnson, Acelity, 3M, Spenco and more.

Adhesive Bandages:

These bandages are small medicated dressings used to cover small cuts or wounds that are not deep or serious enough for a full size dressing.

Adhesive bandages are available in a large number of shapes and sizes for addressing various injuries on different body parts. Try the BSN Jobst Coverlet Fabric Adhesive Bandage that comes with an extra-large medicated pad that can easily absorb the liquid from the wound and keep it dry to promote healing.
