When Sports therapists, Physiotherapists and sports medical teams are present at an event or activity, it is paramount that they are thoroughly prepared for any instance of injury and have all the necessary means of dealing with the injury incident so that they can swiftly and effectively attend to the needs of the players or individuals concerned. This includes being suitably prepared in terms of their available Sport First Aid Kit which can refer to either a run-on bag or a more encompassing kit that covers all immediate treatment essentials. That’s why our Sports First Kits have everything you might need for any situation, all neatly organised in our iconic Physique Pitch-side and run-on bags. Our Sports and Pitch-side First Aid Kits are trusted by a wide range of national teams, topflight teams and we even have specifically designed First Aid Kits that are approved by Great Britain Hockey and England Netball
A Sports First Kit should have all treatment essentials such as Gloves, Gauze Swabs, Sterile Dressings, Nasal Sponges, Skin Sutures, Instant Ice Packs, Mouth to Mouth Shield, Eye/Wound Wash pods, Wound Wipes, Dressing Pads, Triangular Bandages, Plasters and Scissors. For a full checklist, please visit our Buyer’s Guide on what you should have in your Sports First Aid Kit. Some items commonly used that weren’t listed also include Deep Heat or Deep Freeze spray, Water bottles and Tape.
Since First Aid refers to the immediate treatment provided to someone who has incurred a casualty or serious injury, it is meant to be the initial response before any Emergency services such as Ambulances and paramedics arrive. Therefore, pitch-side/sports first aid aims to stop any serious external bleeding, make sure the airways are clear, make sure breathing is normal, assess internal bleeding, analyse the context, examine the patient and finally assess their mental state such as identifying neurological conditions or temporary brain injuries such as concussions. ADCDE is a handy acronym for remembering these aims and it stands for Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability and Exposure.
The golden rules and principles of First aid refer to staying calm while preserving life, Controlling the situation to prevent further injury and attend to the injured, Managing the injury and assisting with recovery and providing effective pain relief. The 3 P’s can help you to remember this: Preserve Life. Prevent The Situation Worsening. Promote Recovery.
Your Sports First Aid Kit should cover all the different types of injuries. Sports Injuries can be classified into three main categories: Acute, Chronic and Overuse. Acute Sports Injuries refers to a one-off but very damaging/traumatic event that has lasting implications such as a fracture, sprains, and strains. Chronic Sports injuries refer to stubborn injuries that just don’t seem to naturally resolve themselves and can cause reoccurring pain and limitations. Overuse Sports Injuries are injuries caused by repetitive use of certain muscles and joints and can simply happen over time such as Tennis elbow, Runner’s and Jumper’s Knee and Achilles tendonitis
