5 Tips to Stay Safe in the Sun

25 Jul

Summer is in full blast, which means you’ll probably be spending lots of time outdoors in the sun. Even though the beach may be calling your name, don’t forget to keep your skin safe while having fun. With just a few precautions, you can lower your chances of skin cancer and also prevent damage from powerful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Here are 5 easy tips to protect your skin:

  1. Use sunscreen! Look for at least SPF 30 and a “broad-spectrum” label. This will protect your skin against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.
  2. Reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially after swimming. Even if the sunscreen is water-resistant, it is recommended to apply another layer after any sweat-inducing activities.
  3. Wear protective clothing, such as a light, long-sleeved shirt (like this one from Cherokee Workwear) or a hat and sunglasses to keep your eyes safe in the sun. Trust Your Journey sells several cute hats and visors that are perfect for outdoor outings.
  4. Try to avoid the sun between 10am-4am. The sun’s rays are the strongest during these hours, so search for the nearest patch of shade if you can.
  5. Look out for reflective surfaces. Sand, water, and snow can reflect harmful UV rays onto your skin, giving you a dreaded sunburn. Even if the sun isn’t out, you can still be affected by the UV rays.

Also, July is UV Safety Month, so it’s an opportune time to show some love to your skin. Encourage friends and family to adopt positive habits to prevent skin cancer and UV damage.

National CPR/AED Awareness Week: June 1st-7th

3 Jun

cpr-awareness2

June 1st marks the beginning of National CPR/AED Awareness Week. This week highlights the importance of learning how to administer CPR and AEDs (automated external defibrillators).  In the U.S. alone, nearly 250,000 to 300,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year. The heart unexpectedly stops beating, and oxygen is deprived from the brain and other vital organs. SCA can claim a victim in only minutes, and many times 911 emergency respondents are too late to the scene.

CPR gives bystanders the ability to save a life during an emergency. A victim of SCA’s chances of survival almost double when CPR is applied within the first few minutes.  It is also encouraged to learn how to use an AED—a machine that attaches to the victim and applies timed electrical shocks. This can also help save those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest.

If you want to learn CPR, find your local American Red Cross chapter. The American Red Cross always offers CPR & AED classes, and they are even hosting special events during CPR/AED Awareness Week. allheart also sells CPR tools if you need equipment for a class or work. It’s never too late to be trained how to save someone’s life, educate yourself today.

Emergency Medical Services for Children Day 2013

22 May

SavetheDateArtwork_Small

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.
