If you knew there was a safe and effective way to keep your EMS Personnel protected from radioactive contamination, would you choose to do it?
Nuclear Medicine procedures on the rise...
More than 20 Million Nuclear Medicine procedures are performed in the US every year and YOUR EMS units are transporting these patients.
Patients transported in EMS vehicles, WILL be leaving radioactive contamination behind.
Any surface they come into contact with may be contaminated and must be cleaned properly.
A sneeze, a cough, a runny nose, saliva, sweat, urine, stool, vomit...WILL spread radioactive contamination unless it is removed properly.
Exposure to contamination can cause others, non patients, to “uptake” the radiotracer.
Patients that undergo treatments will be passing radioactive contamination out of their bodies for hours or even days.
According to an article in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, exposure to small amounts of radiotracers like I131 may be more dangerous than large amounts, mutating cells causing cancer.
EMS Personnel that transport patients home after a nuclear Medicine procedure
will come in contact with radioactive contamination.
Unless it is cleaned up and removed from any skin quickly, it will be absorbed by your body.
Using Bind-It™ Disposable Surface Wipes regularly, ensures that your unit will be clean, fresh and free of radioactive contamination.
Do you want to reduce YOUR liability?
Exposure to radiation and radioactive contamination is becoming more and more prevalent.
EMS personnel will encounter it...
are you prepared?
Excellent all purpose cleaner
Binds to radioactive isotopes and easily wipes away
Proven record of superior performance.
Reduced liability from Nuclear Medicine procedures and contaminants
The only cleaner designed to bind and remove radioactive isotopes
Other cleaners spread, or vaporize contamination
Safeguard expectant mothers
These procedures use radioactive materials called radio-pharmaceuticals or radio-tracers. The radio-tracers are swallowed by or injected into the patient.
Through the natural process of radioactive decay, the radio-tracer in the body will lose its radioactivity over time. It will also pass out of the body through a sneeze, a cough, a runny nose, saliva, urine, stool or vomit.
More than 20 Million procedures are performed in the US every year. Patients transported in EMS vehicles, will be leaving radioactive contamination behind.
Only Bind-It™ is effective on all isotopes used in nuclear medicine, even radio-iodine. Making Bind-It™ part of your regular cleaning will ensure that no radioactive contamination is left behind.
Hospitals use it because it works! Use Bind-It™ Decontaminate products for your safety.
Every day there is a new article on a radiological incident. Nuclear Medicine patients setting off tunnel alarms, medical waste triggering landfill scanners, power plant workers being “radioactive” after sleeping in a motel. There was even a report about a cat coming home from an I131 procedure that set off a radiation detector on the freeway.
With Bind-It™ Decontamination products, saying YES is painless. Regular use of Bind-It™ Decontamination products will reduce the risk of exposure to harmful radioactive contamination.
Replace your general cleaner and hand soap with Bind-It™ Decontamination products and give your EMS personnel the very best, you know they deserve it.
ALARA is an acronym for As Low As Reasonably Achievable. This is a radiation safety principle for minimizing radiation doses and releases of radioactive materials by employing all reasonable methods. ALARA is a regulatory requirement for all radiation safety programs. ALARA applies not only to workers, but to the general public as well. Exposure to ionizing radiation should always be minimized.
