Injuries are the number one cause of death for children 1-6 years old and in fact, the number one cause of death for ages 1-44 years old. While 70% of all accidents happen in the home, the ability to rapidly recall first aid steps and provide the necessary care is often a daunting task for parents, seniors and babysitters.
The Safe at Home Talking First Aid kit contains individual color and icon coded Care Packs containing ALL of the supplies and easy to follow instructions for managing the most common home injuries. The audio modules in each Care Pack takes the technology a step further. With the squeeze of a button, the module provides step by step instructions to manage the injury, pausing and repeating when necessary for accurate response.
Each injury care card contains the same first aid instructions taught in most first aid classes.The front of each card provides color and icon coding for rapid selection along with the list of supplies included. All of the instructional content on the cards is consistent with current first aid guidelines developed by the National First Aid Science Advisory Board.
The Safe at Home Talking First Aid kit contains Care packs for Bleeding, Bone, Bites & Stings and Basics. It also contains a 22 page full color guidebook covering additional medical emergencies.
I think this kit is awesome! I know that when faced with medical emergencies, I personally, tend to panic and cannot think clearly. Let alone trying to read a first aid book or online instructions(if computer is even close by). This totally would give peace of mind! Each care pack gives you all the gauze, bandages, disposable gloves, ice packs, rolls of tape etc that you would need for each injury. The audio instructions are easy to understand, are heard clearly and follow right along with the written instructions. On each card, there are pictures to go along with the written instructions and audio. I also love that everything comes in a convenient zippered carrying case and each care pack comes in its own Ziploc type resealable bag. While I cannot vouch for how well it would work in a true medical emergency, I feel much better knowing that I have this in my home in case something does happen. It would definitely make me feel better about knowing what exactly I am supposed to do so I don't make things worse instead of better and would help me keep calm and not panic. I highly recommend this to ANYONE for their home. It could save a life...literally!
