Abstract

Aim. To conduct a comparative analysis of the content of car first aid kits in Ukraine and EU countries to render premedical first aid.

Materials and methods. Scientific publication, electronic databases of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the own research, methods of generalization, systematization of the theoretical and practical material and system analysis were used.

Results. It has been found that the difference between car first aid kits in Ukraine and EU countries is rather significant. Today, in the EU, car first aid kits are equipped according to the DIN13164 standard designed by the German Institute for Standardization (DIN 13164-1:1968-04. Standard: Firstaidmaterial – Firstaidbox). This standard complies with the requirements of the Convention and takes into account the EU directives on medicines and dressings contained in them. In Ukraine, car first aid kits are equipped in accordance with DSTU 3961-2000.

Conclusions. The results of the comparative analysis of car first aid kits in Ukraine and the EU suggest that the content of car first aid kits in Ukraine requires updating and supplementing with medicines possessing antiseptic and wound healing properties, as well as dressings and the latest medicines for premedical first aid.
