Details

Description:  

This dual purpose heating and cooling pack combines the advantage of two temperature ranges in one colorful bear. Heating and cooling packs by Thermal-Aid were developed by Bio-Engineers and Doctors that worked closely with milling experts using a unique patented process, which removes the embryo/germ tip cap and outer coat from each kernel of corn. This leaves the purest and cleanest portion of the corn product. This process hardens the specialized de-germinated corn, allowing it to hold temperatures evenly for long periods of time. It also eliminates mold, fungi and foul odors often associated with natural heating/cooling products.

Size: 1 Soft, Cuddly Bear 12″ x 5″ & 1.6lbs

  • Before using heat or cold therapy, be sure your skin is dry and free from cuts and sores. If you have visible skin damage, don't use cold or heat
  • Hot packs should be applied for 15 to 20 minutes. Visually check the skin every 5 minutes and discontinue treatment if there are abnormal changes in skin color or you experience increased discomfort. Do not lie on a hot pack or apply heat when going to sleep since it increases the likelihood of burns resulting from close or prolonged contact with the heat source
  • Visually check the area of the body being treated with ice packs or other cooling agents every 5 minutes – while there may be discomfort and redness initially, treatment should be discontinued if these symptoms persist
  • 100% Natural Heating and Cooling Pack

 

What Nurses Know:

There are many heating and cooling agents available.  If you or your child are injured should you use hot or cold?  If used correctly following an injury, hot and cold can help to reduce pain, assist with tissue healing, control swelling, and increase flexibility. If used incorrectly, however, they can also worsen an injury or slow recovery times.  Cold is typically applied within the first 24-48 hours of the acute stage of an injury, to prevent tissue damage, or after the first 48 hours if inflammation persists.  Follow the “PRICE” protocol to manage an injury in the early stages when swelling and pain are at their peak: Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. After the initial application, cold therapy may be used periodically throughout the day for approximately 10 to 15 minutes at a time.  Heat applied to an area dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow, delivering needed nutrients and oxygen to cells in the area being heated, aiding the removal of cell waste and promoting healing.  Both hot and cold therapies have a role to play for patients whose injuries are suitable for self-care.
