New Zealand is set to introduce a new surgical first assist service after a new trial found the procedure is as effective as the standard operating procedure.
The trial, carried out at the Auckland University Hospital, found the technique was effective in reducing the risk of infection and scarring during surgery.
It was first trialled in 2010 and is designed to provide patients with first aid while the procedure takes place.
It has been a long road for the first aid treatment.
In 2012, New Zealanders were advised to get the first-aid kit at home, after the country was rocked by the coronavirus pandemic.
The first aid kit is a small kit containing a bandage, mask, gauze, bandage cloth, bandages and bandage pad.
The kit contains a towel and a pair of gloves and is intended to be used in emergencies.
In the last year, New Zealands health service has rolled out the first aids kit.
