    5 Ways You Can Use IceShot for Topical Pain Relief

    September 28th, 2016

    Are you or your kids scared of needles? If so, there is no longer anything to fear! This is because IceShot is the #1 pre-injection numbing device on the market. That’s right. IceShot is a small handheld device, but it sure does pack a punch since it has been designed to deliver a freezing burst that almost immediately numbs. It’s safe, easy to use and reusable. Check out just 5 of the many ways you can use this icy device in your daily life.

    1. Insulin Injections – Almost 30 million Americans are currently living with diabetes and about ¼ of them use insulin to treat their condition. IceShot helps these individuals administer insulin in a less painful way by numbing the injection zone.
    2. Fertility Treatments – The number of women using IVF to achieve their dream of becoming mothers is on the rise with the passing of each year, and these moms-to-be know just how helpful IceShot is. This numbing device relieves some of the pain associated with self-administering the injections required for the treatment to work.
    3. School Vaccinations – Parents also love IceShot because they make doctor’s appointments for the little ones easier and less traumatic. Toss it in your diaper bag or handbag before heading to the doctor’s office with your kiddo or baby when it’s time for general vaccinations, immunizations or flu shots.
    4. Cosmetic Injections – Believe it or not, plastic surgeons also prefer IceShot. This is mainly because it is a safe, fast-acting and affordable option for topical numbing before administering Botox injections and other cosmetic injections.
    5. Vitamins & Supplements – If you’re someone who self-administers vitamin injections at home, you’ll definitely appreciate the convenience of IceShot. Simply apply IceShot to the injection site prior to injecting the vitamins and then store the device in the freezer to use again.

    December 18th, 2013

    There are few products out there that can literally save lives, but the ADC 4053 by Adsafe CPR Pocket Resuscitator mask is one of them. In trained hands, this pocket resuscitator can be the difference between life and death for children or adults who have stopped breathing due to an obstruction in their throat or other breathing problem.

    ADC 4053

    The ADC 4053 is a mask that is meant to be placed over the face of an individual who is not breathing in order to make the administration of CPR more effective. Unlike mouth to mouth resuscitation, this mouth to mask resuscitation is more effective and has better outcomes for patients.

It features a valve and filter that can be thrown away to avoid making future patients sick. It has a one way valve and is completely air-tight, which makes it much more effective than standard mouth to mouth resuscitation. It is also completely portable and fits easily in a pocket. The included mask also doubles as an oxygen mask, featuring an oxygen port that can be used with standard oxygen tanks.

    This mask deserves five stars from us and is our top pick for first responders. Made by one of the most respected suppliers of medical products on the United States, American Diagnostic Corporation, the ADC 4053 is an affordable mask that is perfect for all types of emergency resuscitation.

    HR Lubricating Jelly: High Quality, Premium Lubricant

    May 21st, 2013

    All lubricants Are Not created Equally.

    Over the years, the lubricating jelly market has changed and has been subject of detailed investigation by the FDA and other regulatory agencies. As with many medical device items, market pressures have driven the pricing down and we have seen these pressures negatively affect product quality. In today’s healthcare environment, a company can’t expect to pay a low, low price and expect to buy quality product.

    Since 1931, the Holland Rantos Company manufactured the “premium” HR Lubricating Jelly. When HR left the market in the early 2000s, Surgilube became the predominant product on the market and gained market share once owned by HR Lubricating Jelly. As pricing pressures in the 2000s became even stronger, many “commodity” type products surfaced. During this same time, many companies began sourcing products overseas in an effort to keep the costs down.

    Many lubricants contain a significant amount of water as the primary ingredient. Recently, there has been a flurry of publicity regarding the inferior water quality in China and Korea; it is understandable that this fact may stir one to question what kind of water may be going into lubricants that are manufactured overseas.

    It’s no secret that during the past few years the FDA has been extremely busy chastising a few companies that make lubricating and ultrasound jelly, all centering around quality. When companies are indicted, it is usually as a result of the company either not following cGMP, and/or using inferior ingredients.

    When evaluating a lubricant for use, one should consider a few questions:

    1. Is the product sterile?
    2. Is the product made in the USA?
    3. How long has the product been on the market and has there ever been an FDA recall?
    4. Does the manufacturer follow cGMP?
    5. Does the manufacturer follow ISO 9001:2008 production standards?
    6. Does the manufacturer follow ISO 13485:2003 standards (specifically for medical devices)?
    7. Is the product registered with the FDA and how many Medical Device Registrations does the product maintain?

    So, are all lubricants created equally? Hands down, the answer is NO! Furthermore, you don’t have to pay a top dollar for a Premium product. HR Lubricating Jelly is your high quality, premium lubricant that carries a middle of the road price. When you sacrifice quality over a price driven commodity, you leave room for compromise and ultimately the patient may suffer.


    Pedia Pals: Child-Friendly Exam Tables & Medical Equipment

    Pedia Pals – Taking the Scare Out of Healthcare

    Pedia Pals bridges the gap between children and medical professionals. Their pediatric medical supplies provides an entertaining and calming focus for children while improving diagnosis and treatment for these often frightened patients.

    Exam Tables:

    The idea behind Pedia Pals’ child friendly pediatric exam table began with Ann Kochsiek, founder of ZooPals. Her son, Ry, had been diagnosed with leukemia at age 4. Ann discovered that taking him to the hospital for treatment involved examinations on a table that Ry and other children agreed was “cold, scary, and very unfriendly.” Ann designed and patented a number of animal-shaped exam tables that have become favorites in pediatric offices all over the world. Today, Ann is Pedia Pals’ V. P. of Marketing. Ry is a healthy college graduate.

     

    Here’s some helpful ideas from pediatricians hot to best make use of Pedia Pals products to keep patients relaxed and cooperative:

     

    Elly The Elephant Otoscope Attachment:

    elly_bp

    We use Pedia Pals Elly the Elephant Otoscope Attachment to introduce patients to a new friend – not a cold, scary medical instrument. We tell patients: “My friend Elly just loves to whisper secrets. Can Elly whisper a secret in your ear? Great! Now you have to sit really still and be very quiet so you can hear what she’s saying.” We often then whisper a compliment, like “you’re a very good girl.” It really works.

     

    Jamaal Giraffe Reflex Hammer:

    j_giraffe_bpWhen using Pedia Pals’ Jamaal Giraffe Reflex Hammer, let the patient become comfortable with the character. We tell patients that “Jamaal likes to be held and give kisses,” and then ask if they would like to hold Jamaal. Then explain that “Jamaal wants to give them a kiss on the knee,” and ask if they can show you where their knee is. When a patient points out his/her knee, we reassure with comments like: “That’s right. Jamaal thinks you’re really smart!” Now, when Jamaal gives our patient a ‘kiss on the knee,’ it tickles. The result is that we can test reflexes more quickly while comforting our patients.

     

    Benjamin Bear Blood Pressure Kit:

    benjamin_bpBenjamin Bear Blood Pressure Kit relaxes our patients by transforming a blood pressure cuff and bulb into a new friend. We explain: “This is Benjamin, and he likes to give cuddly bear hugs. I’m going to put this around your arm and hand you this little bear (the bulb). Now, if you give the little bear a hug, you’ll feel Benjamin hug you right back.” Because patients are engaged in the procedure, they don’t pay as much attention to the pressure.

    Ableware Maddak Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench

    April 10th, 2013

    Ableware Sliding Rotating Bench Makes the Bathroom a Safer Place

    transfer benchIf you are thinking “I didn’t know the bathroom was unsafe”, consider this: a 2011 study by the Center for Disease Control reported that hundreds of thousands of falls occur in the bathroom each year, with seniors suffering the most serious injuries. One reason for these falls is difficulty stepping over the wall of a bathtub. A solution to overcoming this is the Ableware Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench from which simplifies the process of getting into and out of the bathtub by eliminating the need for a person to step over the side.

    Kathleen Hanek, Director of Product Management for Maddak Inc., U.S. manufacturer of Ableware Aids for Daily Living, explains “the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is extremely helpful to people who have difficulty stepping over the wall of a bathtub. It has a long seating surface and is positioned with two legs in the tub and two legs outside. This allows you to sit down on the portion of the seat that is outside and safely transfer across the seat into the inside of the tub. The sliding feature enables you to move across the bench with very little effort, and the swivel seat allows for easier transfers into the tub and optimal accessibility for caregivers.” In addition to the senior population Hanek adds “the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is ideal for anyone who has a lower extremity injury or a disability that prevents weight bearing on the legs”.

    The Ableware Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is height adjustable from 16 – 23″ (40.6 – 58.4 cm) and, according to Hanek, “features Maddak’s exclusive quick-change leg design that makes adjusting the height simple. The legs can be easily adjusted in 1/4″ (.64 cm) increments and they have non-slip rubber tips that hold the bench securely in place.” The legs, back and arm are all removable for easy transport and storage. Other amenities include a built-in soap tray, a shower spray holder and a slit for the shower curtain. Made of talc filled polypropylene the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench has a weight capacity of 400 lb. (181.8 kg).

    When it comes to running a medical office, or even a tattoo shop, you need to have all of your tools clean to ensure transmission of communicable disease doesn’t happen in your location. That means using one of the wide range of autoclave sterilizers which come from Tuttnauer.

    Germs of all types can be transmitted between person to person when their bodies are being penetrated by tools. Whether it is a digital thermometer in a clinic or a piercing needle in a jewelry shop, all items must be completely sterilized between uses. If not, people will become sick and the location will be quickly shut down by the health department, and huge lawsuits may even be filed against the owner and staff. Not being clean leads to major consequences.

    When it comes to medical offices, cleanliness is essential. Sick people come in every day, and they don’t want to be made sicker. Using an autoclave from Tuttnauer is going to ensure everyone is as healthy as they possibly can be, including staff.

    Autoclaves sterilize equipment gently, such as by using steam. They come in all shapes and sizes so that they can fit into your office easily. They also come in a variety of capacities so that you can sterilize all of your equipment at once. When it comes to quality, affordability and reliability, nothing compares to Tuttnauer.
