Any medical professional who is out and about providing emergency medical treatment or pre-hospital care wants and needs their clothing to be many things – visible, hard wearing, practical, weather-resistant and comfortable. This sounds like a tall order, but here at Bound Tree Medical Europe we are proud to stock clothing that provides all of the above as part of our range of 18,000 medical supplies and equipment.
One of our favourite items is the 5.11 Tactical shirt, which is so great you’ll want to wear it even when you’re off duty! One of the main features of this shirt are its hidden document pockets, which are big enough to hold papers discreetly and securely. The shirt has a total of 6 pockets, including two practical pen pockets on the left sleeve for ease of use. 5.11 clothing uses a heat management system to make sure that your body can breathe and keep cool or warm as the weather requires.
Another essential item of any paramedic or emergency care worker’s medical uniform has to be a high visibility jacket. Bad conditions because of poor weather or low visibility often lead to accidents, and this is where your job most often comes in. However, these conditions mean you are also then at risk, and so you need to make sure you can be seen easily. Our hi-vis jackets are made from the best reflective material around, and feature all the practicality and comfort you can expect from the products we supply.
Anyone who provides emergency medical treatment or care needs to undergo training and re-training at several points throughout their career in order to make sure their skills and knowledge are up-to-date and fresh. All workers in this domain need to be able to operate equipment correctly and safely, as well as have a thorough knowledge of the procedures that can be used to save a person’s life.
As well as supplying all the first aid supplies that could be needed for a medical emergency, we also hold a large selection of training equipment which can be used during emergency care training courses, because we understand that the best way to learn something is through practice. We stock full size anatomical models, which can help trainees learn about the outside of the body as well as the inner organs. The model is fully dissectible, meaning that each part can be taken out or off to fully learn about that organ or area and provide a 3D example.
We also hold a number of training manikins, including those for adult and infant CPR, as well as a number of manikins at different potential ‘human’ weights, which can be used to simulate different rescue situations, such as from a tunnel or building collapse, a fire hazard, or other confined or hazardous space. These manikins are life-size and have fully articulated joints, as well as a realistic weight distribution based on human weight to make any rescue simulation as authentic as possible.
