The Complete First Aid kit sets a new standard by including environmentally friendly components
Wayne, PA (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Most first aid kits do not address the environmental impact of their contents. The Complete First Aid kit reverses this trend by including products such as a urea based cold pack that is environmentally friendly.
“Use of a urea based cold pack has many advantages over the conventional ammonium nitrate based one found in 99% of first aid kits”, says Caitlin Krasner, Director of new product development at Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. “The urea formula is safe if it comes in contact with skin or environment, it can be recycled with other recyclables, it is latex free and exceeds ANSI Requirements for Cold Packs 18.104.22.168 and ASTM Method D882 for Tensile Strength at Break for cold duration,” she adds.
In addition, the urea-based cold pack can be activated with one hand and, when mixed with water following use, can be implemented to fertilize plants.
Alternatively, Cold packs that utilize ammonium nitrate have explosive potential and must be shipped by more expensive methods. They also must be disposed of according to special Federal, State or Local requirements. Some authorities even recommend that they be disposed of in a waste disposal facility.
With concerns about HIV, hepatitis and other transmittable diseases, it is essential to have a disposable, economical mouth-to-mouth barrier between the rescuer and the victim in a well-stocked first aid kit. A patented mouth-to-mouth barrier in the Complete First Aid kit, the CPRrotector, made in the USA by Certified Safety Manufacturing, is both economical and disposable. Its exceptional patented design has a one-way valve that prevents back flow of air or fluids to the rescuer from the victim’s oral secretions. The cross-section on the bottom of the stem prevents tongue blockage and the stem length complies with the new FDA standard and serves as a bite stick if needed.
“A really good first aid kit should have all of the components that are necessary for almost any emergency”, says Dr. Paul Krasner, Professor of Dentistry at Temple University School of Dentistry. “Since heart attacks can happen at any time and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation is necessary to save a life, a mouth to mouth barrier is critical to have if there is a fear of contracting transmittable diseases or a revulsion from oral secretions. This CPR protector has a one-way valve that eliminates this worry and the flexible barrier prevents the transmission of disease,” he continues.
The Complete First Aid kit also contains the Save-A-Tooth® system, the only product that can store, preserve and safely transport knocked out teeth for twenty-four hours until they can be reimplanted by a dentist. Over 90% of the five million teeth knocked out each year in the United States and Canada can be saved if the Save-A-Tooth® is used within 60 minutes of the accident.
In addition to its being the most “Complete” first aid kit, the Complete First Aid kit is completely made in the USA and contains the highest quality USA made components. The Save-A-Tooth® has been recommended as a “must-have” for travelers by renowned travel authority, Jeanine Barone on her website, http://www.jthetravelauthority.com and has the Seal of Acceptance of the American Dental Association.
