Product Feature: Opioid Overdose Kit

According to WashingtonPost.com, 100 Drug-Overdose deaths occur each day. Drug overdose deaths now outnumber those caused by car crashes and homicide meaning that the numbers are jaw-dropping. A major problem in the U.S. is Opiate overdose. In fact, it has contributed significantly to accidental deaths among those who use, misuse or abuse illicit and prescription opioid analgesics. 

Sadly, overdose deaths involving prescription opioid analgesics have increased to almost 17,000, yes seventeen thousand deaths a YEAR. Drug poisoning deaths in the U.S. almost doubled in a decade, from 2001 to 2010. It's sad and heartbreaking the times we live in.

Opioids include illegal drugs such as heroin--but it's also inside prescription meds used to treat pain, common ones such as morphine, codeine, methadone, oxycodone (oxytocin, percodan, percocet), hydrocodone (vicodin, lortab, norco), fentanyl, and many more. 

Naloxone is the antidote to reverse opioid overdose. So the kit shown above is critical to anyone who believes they may be in the right place at the right time to help someone in this situation. 

This kit by Iron Duck includes secure storage spots for 2 Pre-filled Naloxone Syringes (2mg/2ml), and and inside mesh pocket for storage of multiple MAD devices. It's made of 1000D nylon, with room for a CPR Barrier Device, pair of exam gloves, and available in yellow or back. 

This is an ideal product for First Responders, Police Officers, Corrections officers, EMT's, Paramedics, Social Workers and even Community Outreach Workers.

Product Feature: Nasco Lifeform Infant Simulator

Dramatic new training aids are coming to the market every day to help demonstrate and simulate situations that our future medical responders need to practice. There's no doubt that the Nasco Lifeform Infant Intraosseous Infusion Simulator is doing just that.

With such a difficult procedure, a proper way to train was needed and it had been difficult to simulate in the past! Trainers and educators used to resort to using unsanitary chicken and turkey bones as teaching aids. But not anymore. The Intraosseous Infusion Simulator allows students to learn and practice I/O infusion with accuracy and realism, and also the more sanity and realistic alternative.

The simulator is cost effective and has inexpensive multi-use replacement "bones" and skins, which makes this a product you can train with for years. A 15-gauge needle is used during simulation, and each bone has 4 sides which all can be punctured several times.

  • Life/form® Intraosseous Infusion Simulator (represents a six-month-old infant)
  • 10 replaceable bone inserts
  • 2 sets of replacement leg skins
  • 2 white towelettes
  • Syringe with tubing
  • Blood powder
  • Sealing wax
  • ½ oz. liquid lubricant
  • Mixing bottle
  • Needle (15 gauge)
  • Hard carrying case
  • One-year warranty.
