Spill Kits and Spill Equipment

Spill Kits and Spill Equipment

Medical procedures don't always go as planned. Accidents happen at hospitals and facilities. When they do, one of the best tools to have on hand is a spill kit. Spill kits are not just for medical facilities, they are also a great precautionary tool in industrial settings and public places like schools, health clubs, and shopping malls.


Spill kits are designed to clean up mercury spills from broken spyghmamometers. But today, with automatic non-aneroid monitors, a spill kit might be a great defense against other hazardous material spills. What are the typical contents of a spill kit?

Prosthetic Leg Beats Ankle Monitor

Prosthetic Leg Beats Ankle Monitor


In Britain a man named Christopher Lowcock pulled a fast one on the British police. Arrested for drug and driving offenses, Lowcock was sentenced to wear an ankle monitor to make sure he didn't break house arrest (just like Lindsay Lohan!). But Lowcock, being the wily arch-criminal he is, had other plans and a prosthetic leg to help him. He wrapped his prosthetic limb in an elastic bandage when officers came to his house to set up the monitoring equipment. Consequently, Lowcock could simply remove his leg with the monitor on it whenever he wanted to breach the court-imposed curfew. So how did they catch him?

Traveling with a Diabetes Pump

Traveling with a Diabetes Pump

Are you diabetic and travel with a diabetes pump? If so researchers have found that people who are very sensitive to small changes in their insulin levels, such as diabetic children, are at risk for insulin pump malfunction during the pressure changes of an airplane flight. Pressure changes during flights can cause insulin pumps to deliver too much or too little of the medication, putting sensitive diabetics at risk. How can you avoid this?

What is My Metabolic Age?

What is My Metabolic Age?

Metabolic age is a relatively new term to describe overall fitness. Metabolic age is calculated by comparing your basal metabolic rate to the average basal metabolic rate of your chronological age group. Basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy consumed per unit of time when all environmental factors are considered neutral, and the energy expenditure is only sufficient to support normal body functioning. Formulas for calculating basal metabolic rate take into account age, weight, height, activity level, body fat mass, and lean body mass.


Metabolic age will give a person insight to their overall level of health and wellness.


If you want to take these measurements, take control of your health, and get the insight into your health, you're going to need medical equipment. What kind of medical equipment do you need to find your metabolic age?

Medical Restraint Papoose Boards

Medical Restraint Papoose Boards

Not all medical procedures go smoothly. When dealing with emergency medical situations, doctors, nurses, or EMTs may need to restrain the patient. In certain medical situations, especially with children, this means using medical restraint boards. Adults or children can undergo unexpected seizures while undergoing emergency treatment, and sometimes shock and trauma can cause unintended movement in a patient that can be potentially dangerous to the patient and the medical professionals treating them. In these situations, the medical restraint papoose board is necessary.
