How can you keep your child safe, even when you’re not there?

Anyone who has a child with a worrying medical condition, an allergy or who takes multiple medications knows the pain of wondering every minute if they’re safe. Whenever they’re at school, on camp, at a sleepover or on public transport, how can you know they’ll be appropriately cared for if something happens to them? This is something faced by all parents of all children but when there is a medical condition involved, the concern is multiplied many times over.

Equipping your child with a Quoll Medical Alert device means that if they get sick or injured, first responders will know exactly how to treat them – and, important, how not to treat them. And if they take medications but somehow miss one, take the wrong dosage or lose their meds, all the information will be right there with them.

For parents, peace of mind is absolutely golden. When you can’t be there with them or even if a tragedy occurs and no one of authority is well enough to speak on their behalf, their Quoll Medical Alert device will step in and be that precious voice of authority of enabling access to immediate health care services.

Comfort for you and independence for your child

With a Quoll Medical bracelet, necklace, dog tags or plastic card on board, not only will you have peace of mind but your child will enjoy a great sense of independence. This is crucial in helping a child understand and deal with their medical situation through life.

In an emergency, communication of vital information is crucial!

Training is provided to first responders (ambulance, paramedics, police and other emergency situation attendees) to look for a patient’s medical ID. Help them to help your child.

Simply by wearing or carrying a Quoll Medical Alert device, the information will be instantly available, thus facilitating your access to health care services.And not just medical information, but valuable data such as the patient’s name, address, next of kin and their contact details.

Common medical emergencies among children

  • Falls, bumps and breaks happen among children with monotonous regularity, but for some children, the consequences can be severe.
  • Injuries such as burns, cuts and scrapes can become more serious depending on the child’s medical condition.
  • Illnesses in children can escalate quickly, requiring urgent attention to prevent dehydration or, in extreme cases, organ failure.
  • When the child and parents are all injured at once, no one may be able to speak for them and their medical condition or about the medications they require or cannot take.
  • Serious food allergies can be life-threatening but in young children, school can be rife with food hazards.

What if you had 3 minutes left to live?

When allergies are serious and life-threatening, it’s imperative that you keep life-saving information up to date at all times and that it is readily visible following a medical alert.

Anaphylactic shock can occur within 3 to 30 minutes of exposure to the allergen. Knowing what to treat and how to do so is critical to the patient’s survival. When properly treated, there is a far greater likelihood of a successful outcome. Don’t risk those precious extra moments. Be ready for any emergency, however likely or unlikely it may be!

In an emergency, communication of vital information is crucial!

First responders (ambulance, paramedics, police, and other emergency situation attendees) look for a patient’s medical ID. Anyone can suffer from a life-threatening allergy. Being able to communicate this can mean the difference between life and death. A medical alert device can facilitate communication between you and the first responders. Consider how difficult this communication can be for children, the disabled, the deaf, the visually impaired, and the elderly. They all need help to explain their condition. Any sufferer – including able-bodied adults – can experience difficulties communicating when their body is under attack by an allergen.

What if this were to happen to you or your loved one with a life-threatening allergy?

  • Your child is alarmingly allergic to bee stings and a bee has stung at a friend’s party.
  • Your highly allergic child consumes food containing peanuts or wheat (or another allergen) at school camp.
  • If your elderly mother is severely allergic to ibuprofen but a well-meaning friend has given a couple of tablets for a headache.
  • You get injury in an accident and have a life-threatening reaction to morphine.
  • Your father has dementia, has cut his arm and is terribly allergic to the adhesive of medical tape.
