As a parent I believe it’s very important to know how to not just attempt to prevent accidents from happening to our children but I believe we should also be prepared for what happens if those accidents should come to pass.
I am recommending to all those in the care of children the Medbasics kits for those situations in life that sometimes do happen. The creator behind this life saving product is Tara Summers Hermann, whom had to act quickly to clear the airway of her 16 months son who began to choke one day at lunch. Luckily, Tara is a registered nurse and her husband, Luke, is an emergency room physician. She knew what to do but not all of us do. She pondered would the babysitter, or whomever else was caring for her child, thus MEDBASICS was born.
As a parent my first instinct is going to be is to phone 9-1-1 in a medical situation, but what happens if my phone isn’t getting reception and if help becomes caught up in traffic? Honestly as parents have to take these factors into consideration.
There are two different Medbasics instructional first aid booklets, the home edition and the travel. I am reviewing the travel edition today.
The Medbasics Travel Pack is a durable board book with spiral-bound pages and color tabs that allow you to quickly access information on CPR, choking, fevers, bleeding, burns and poison emergencies involving babies. The easy to follow instructions and detailed illustrations are those that any person could follow with no problems at all during an emergency situation. I like that in the front of this book, there’s an area where you can fill out your child’s important medical information as well as emergency contacts if something were to happen.
The convenience of the Medbasics Travel Pack is great! It’s perfect for storing in the car, stroller, or diaper bag and it’s also weather resistant so no worries on it getting ruined. I know I won’t be leaving home without mine! I feel at ease that knowing with the help of Medbasics kits, myself or whomever is caring for my child can be helped in preventing dire accidents in becoming worse.

To enter: Leave me a comment here telling me about medical situation scare that you’ve encountered with your child and what did you do?
(For instance my daughter had a rising temperature just last week (103.2) and I stayed calm collective, kept my daughter hydrated, gave her Tylenol, and watched her behavioral changes like a hawk….thank goodness her fever broke and no further medical assistance was needed but it was pretty scary! I thank years of watching my mom to know what to do. Another times is when my daughter scratched her Cornea!)
