Wednesday, May 22 is a day dedicated to the unique needs of children in emergency situations.
Children respond differently than adults to illness and injury and have their own spectrum of diseases and injuries. Proper treatment calls for specific equipment, supplies, and medications that may not always be available in emergency systems designed for adults.
On this day during Emergency Medical Services week, EMS providers are setting aside time to focus on the unique needs of children and on advocating for proper preparation to handle childhood emergencies, including education, training, protocols and procedures.
At allheart.com, we want to salute all EMS providers and, on this day, to say thanks to those who provide the special attention required by children.
For some medical equipment designed especially for treating children, we invite you to take a look at the great prices on our Pedia Pals products or our selection of high-quality pediatric stethoscopes.
Tomorrow, April 22, is the 41st annual Earth Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation for the environment. We think it’s a great time to encourage and support practical efforts to help protect the planet. Every little bit counts, and it’s easier than you think!
Encourage your workplace to get involved. It’s easy to recycle, reuse, and repurpose. Create recycling areas for all paper and plastic. Ask colleagues to reuse paper and print double-sided; you’ll reduce unnecessary waste and stretch your office supply budget at the same time. Eliminate plastic and Styrofoam waste in the break room by repurposing old dishes and utensils from home.
You can also support companies that offer products made from sustainable fabrics and manufactured with environmentally safe methods. Check out the soft, sustainable bamboo tops and scrub pants from Cherokee and IguanaMed. Do No Harm offers a line of high-tech workwear created from eco-friendly recycled textiles. And look to L.A. Rose for organic cottons that are easy on the environment.
