Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. Upgrades Its Complete First Aid Kit with Inclusion of Splinter Remover and Blister Breaker

September 17, 2012

WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Even though it is the #1 selling USA-made first aid kit on Amazon.com, Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. is attempting to create a first aid kit that is even better and more “Complete,” by adding a splinter remover and blister breaker component to its Complete First Aid kit.

“We are attempting to offer to the public a superior first aid kit that includes all the components necessary to treat all minor and some major injuries,” says Stephan Krasner, Vice President of production at Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc.

The splinter remover and blister breaker is a tremendous item to have in a first aid kit. People get splinters every day and have no sterile, scientific way to remove them. When they get a splinter, most people look around for a sewing needle, stick it in a flame to sterilize it and then dig around in their finger, hoping to remove it. The splinter remover in the Complete First Aid kit is a sterile, scientifically designed device that can remove splinters easily, bloodlessly and painlessly.

The device also acts as a sterile blister breaker. Once again, people who get a blister are usually not equipped to break the blister in a sterile scientific way. The blister breaker in the Complete First Aid kit accomplishes that with ease.

“As far as we know,” says Krasner, “there are no other first aid kits with this component. When you add in the Save-A-Tooth(®) which is also unique to first aid kits, there really is no other kit that a consumer should consider buying,” he adds.

“In addition to the splinter remover, there are several other unique items such as an elastic bandage in this kit. Most other first aid kits are just a bunch of adhesive bandages and some tape and attempt to distract people by adding a large number of irrelevant items like 50 cotton tips. Just going by the total number of items does not give an indication of the quality and real value of the kit,” he adds. “No other kit contains the Save-A-Tooth(®) system, a component that can really keep dental bills down.”

“The dental profession is now recommending a ‘proactive’ approach to saving knocked out teeth,” says Dr. Henry Rankow, Professor of Dentistry at Temple School of Dentistry. “Instead of waiting for the teeth to be knocked out and then looking around for something in which to store the teeth, dentists advise the public to purchase Save-A-Tooths ahead of time and place them in emergency kits. When used within the first 60 minutes of the accident, over 90% of knocked out teeth can be kept alive for 20 hours until they can be reimplanted by a dentist.”

So now, whether a splinter needs to be removed, a blister broken or a knocked out tooth saved, everyone should purchase a Complete First Aid kit to be prepared for any accident.
