Snake Bite Kit
Australia is home to about 140 species of land snakes. Of these are 21 of the 25 most venomous and deadliest snakes in the world. It is estimated that 3 to 18 in every 100,000 people are bitten by snakes every year across Australia. There’s no better way to protect yourself than with a snake bite kit.
Snake bite kits are designed to manage snake bites, whether they are caused by venomous or non-venomous species. It is used as a first aid treatment immediately after the bite and long before a person receives medical attention from a professional healthcare provider. The kit includes:
- Heavy compression bandages
- Triangular bandages
- First aid instructions for snake bites
Note: Each kit is suitable for one (1) person. Contents are sealed to prevent contamination, and are stored in an easy-to-carry waterproof pouch to protect them from damage.
First Aid Supplies
As a leading provider of first aid kits in Australia, we offer a wide array of dressings and topical applications made for the treatment of certain wounds, such as creams and ointments.
- Iodosorb® is one of our most popular brands. It contains a sterile formulation of cadexomer iodine, a potent microbial. When applied to the wound, it slowly releases iodine to the site, killing any bacteria that may be present for up to several hours. It can absorb exudates and remove slough and debris from the wound, which effectively cleans and prepares it for treatment. Lastly, it covers the affected area with moist gel to keep it from drying up.The combined properties of Iodosorb® make it ideal for the first aid treatment of common injuries. It is available as a dressing, ointment, or powder. We recommend using these products on cuts, abrasions, infected wounds, and slough-covered wounds.
- Solugel® Wound Care Gel is another must-have in every first aid kit. The topical formulation is effective against scalds, minor burns, and sunburn. It is applied before every dressing change to keep wounds moisturised. Use it with any non-adhering dressing of your choice.
Other available dressings at The Zen Shop include Mepilex® Border, Mepitel® with Safetac®, Kaltostat®, and Comfeel®. For fixation, we offer Mefix® and Hypafix® Tape.
