Pediatric Exam Tables For Your Most Precious Patients

Safari Pediatric Treatment Table

PEDIATRIC EXAM TABLES

Pediatric treatment tables help keep young patients calm and comfortable during a medical examination in doctor’s offices, clinics or hospitals. Some pediatric exam tables come in colorful designs to create a fun and kid-friendly environment for children of all ages. If you work in a pediatric care facility, then pediatric exam tables are just what you and your patients need. Pediatric exam tables are smaller than treatment tables, typically sized appropriately for children of various ages. Most importantly, they’re designed with fun art and bright colors that help make children feel more at ease when visiting the doctor—a prospect that can be scary for young ones. Do you need new exam tables for your healthcare facility? From keeping patients and caregivers safe to meeting health codes to sticking to your budget, there’s a lot to consider before choosing the right tables for your hospital or private practice. That’s why we’re breaking down the different types of exam tables along with their benefits so that you can have a comprehensive look at what to expect before you start shopping.

TREATMENT TABLES

Treatment tables are the simplest form of exam table, and they are commonly found in physical therapy facilities and other medical areas where similar treatments are performed. This type of table is padded for comfort and upholstered in healthcare grade vinyl for cleanability. There may be a shelf or storage drawers underneath the seated area, but treatment tables are generally quite simple and meant only to provide basic functions needed in an exam area.

BOX TABLES

Pediatric Alley Cats and Dogs Phlebotomy CartStandard box tables are found in most exam rooms. These feature the same padded vinyl seats as treatment tables, but the backrest of the chair is able to be moved up and down either pneumatically or electrically so that the patient can be easily repositioned as needed. Box tables typically include a heavy duty step to assist patients in getting up onto the table, which is raised high off the ground so that the exam can take place. Storage is often included within this type of healthcare table so that hospital gowns and paper rolls can be kept nearby. If possible, choose a box table with dual access drawers when outfitting a small exam room. This will ensure that healthcare providers can get to the contents of the drawers easily no matter where the exam table is set up.

Treatment tables are more than just a piece of clinic furniture. They ensure the best possible interaction between the therapist and special needs patient. Look at all selections of user-friendly wood, steel and pediatric treatment tables and accessories to find the right solution for your medical office. Visiting the doctor’s office as a child has the potential to cause anxiety and uncertainty. Oftentimes pediatricians design their office space to display colors and playful designs that are appealing to pediatric patients. If you’re looking for the appearance of a doctor’s office to help reduce anxiety for young patients, there are many types and styles of pediatric exam tables for you. Pediatric treatment tables are first designed with safety in mind. Although the tables are intended to entertain and maybe distract pediatric patients, safety and durability are essential.

Pediatric Series – Fire Engine Blood Drawing ChairThere are a lot of fun pediatric treatment tables with different designs and accommodating features. We will talk about some basic functions, colors, and central themes. For example, there are some themes that you can find at every company that sells pediatric exam tables. We will look at six of the most popular themes and what you need in these exam tables for great ease and function in their use:

  • FIRE ENGINE: Your patients will be smiling when they see a Fire Engine pediatric exam table and won’t know even remember they are at the doctors office. You will be smiling too as you speed through exams without stopping for unhappy kids. Their ride will be a safe one with graphics that are permanently embedded in high pressure laminate and will not peel off The comfort pad is made from high-density foam and has premium stain resistant woven knit back upholstery . These tables have 3 separate storage units in them and a concealed paper dispenser.
  • SAFARI: Cruise through the jungle on a safari pediatric exam table. Kids will love “riding” on a safari wagon while getting examined and you can ask them about all the animals they see. This off-road vehicle sports plenty of animal illustrations, authentic wheels, and black tread tires. The 2″ thick replaceable pad will ensure a comfortable ride for your patients. This pediatric exam table is perfect for getting through the jungle safely and quickly.
  • TROLLEY: Bring a little bit of magic, comfort, and “Mr. Rogers” familiarity with a trolley pediatric exam table. Your patients will love climbing aboard a trolley designed table and it will have plenty of room for supplies in drawers, cabinets and paper dispenser that are hidden in the trolley itself. A trolley designed pediatric exam table is full of fun and functionality.
  • ZOO BUS:  A Zoo Bus is always a popular motif for a pediatric exam table. What kid does not like climbing onto a bus, especially when they can pretend they are on the way to the zoo, with animals already peeking out of the windows? Your patients will love climbing up onto a Zoo Bus pediatric exam table. The pads should be a two inch foam pad with a durable kid-resistant cover. Drawers and cabinets should be easy to access and hidden in the design and art on the table.
  • OUTBACK RIDE: Capturing the same fun and excitement of a Zoo Bus or a Safari themed pediatric exam table, complete with animal laminate pictures in the windows of the Outback Ride, this table stays with the knowledge that all kids are delighted by animals.  This pediatric exam table is perfect for getting through the outback (and the exam) safely and quickly.
  • ICE CREAM TRUCK: If you are looking for something a little different than animals, an ice cream pediatric exam table features a ice cream treats and imagination that your patients will love. Look for plenty of storage in a pediatric exam table with doors and full extension drawers. Some exam tables even have retractable foot rests providing a way for the kids that “can do it myself” to climb up. Maybe, if they are good, there may even be a treat waiting inside for them.

Pediatric exam tables can take a lot of the worry from little minds about visiting the doctor. Look for quality construction and durability. Also, look for rounded, soft edges and the ability to be cleaned often without chipping or fading any of the detail that makes them so interesting, comfortable, and fun for kids.

R & L 5/8" X-ray Film Markers - Tie Dye Blue / Yellow / Green

Radiology Lead Markers From Kemper Medical

Radiology lead markers go by a variety of different names. You may have heard them referred to as:

  • Anatomical side markers
  • Lead markers
  • X-ray lead markers
  • Pb markers
  • Radiographic film identification markers

Radiology SafetyRegardless of what name they go by, they all fulfill the same purpose: recording a variety of required information on x-rays for both medical and legal purposes.

  • The position of the patient’s body during the taking of the x-ray
  • Distinctions between the left and right hand side of the patient’s body
  • The name or initials of the radiographer
  • The patient’s name
  • The date and time of the taking of the x-ray

Why Radiology Lead Markers Are A Medical Necessity

Properly diagnosing patients requires information that only radiology lead markers can provide, such as a clear distinction of the left side of the body from the right. Not only can this lead to a misdiagnosis and subsequent mistreatment for normal patients in certain circumstances, it can lead to severe problems if the patient has the following conditions:

  • Dextrocardia: Those with this condition have their heart residing in the right side of their chest, rather than the left.
  • Situs Inversus: Those with this condition have all of their organs located on the opposite side of their body.

Needless to say, this can lead to some serious problems if the left and right sides of the body are not clearly indicated. However, it should be understood that this distinction is important for any patient, as problems can result from failure to make this indication even for physically normal patients. No matter how arbitrary it may seem to the layman, the left/right dichotomy should be clearly indicated on all medical x-rays.

Every medical radiological technician should have had comprehensive training on the proper use of radiology lead markers throughout the course of their schooling. Kemper Medical, Inc. provides the equipment they need to make certain required information clear and legible on the x-rays they take.

Why Radiology Lead Markers Are A Legal Necessity

When x-rays lack certain required information, they are rendered null and void in a court of law. Radiology lead markers should always be used in a medical facility, in case that facility is ever involved in a lawsuit for any reason.

In order for an x-ray to be considered a legally valid document, the radiation used to create it must pass through a radiology lead marker so as to produce clear and concise information.

Kemper Medical, Inc.’s x-ray lead markers provide the ability for radiology technicians to include all of this required information on every x-ray they produce, guarding them and the facility for which they work against possible legal action in the future. We provide the radiological markers you need to fulfill all medical and legal requirements.

Various Forms of Radiology Lead Markers

  • Standard Left/Right Radiology Lead Markers: These will give you the ability to clearly distinguish between the left and right hand sides of the body. At the very least, all medical facilities should have the Standard Left/Right Radiology Lead Markers, as they are an invaluable asset when it comes to radiological diagnostics for both medical and legal reasons.
  • Informative Radiology Lead Markers: These markers provide further information that radiological technicians may need, such as various measurement standards, time elapsed, the date the x-ray was taken, the patient’s name, and the name of the radiographer.
  • Mammography Radiology Lead Markers: The standardized set of abbreviations that are included with these radiology lead markers have all been created by the ACR (American College Of Radiology). There is a wide variety of markers within this particular set, and they will all give radiological technicians the ability to label multiple mammographic images via a variety of imprints.
  • Positioning Radiology Lead Markers: If you need to record information like the position of the patient’s body at the time the x-ray was taken, then these markers are the ideal product for you. Positioning Radiology Lead Markers are also useful if you need to record whether or not the patient was supine, erect, or weight bearing at the time of the x-ray.
  • Sun-Dial Radiology Lead Markers: These radiology lead markers give technicians the ability to record information related to the amount of time passed since the injury was sustained, the time of the patient’s administration, and the time in which the x-ray was taken. These include center dials that can record anywhere from fifteen minutes to forty eight hours.
  • Skin Markers: With these radiology lead markers, rad techs can highlight certain areas of the skin with the use of scar tissue wire, bb markers, semi-translucent markers, and lead wire markers.

Advancing The Technology Behind Radiology Lead Markers

Skin MarkersIf you haven’t updated your radiology lead markers in quite a long time, it may be time to do so. Modern technology is resulting in a lot of development when it comes to these instruments, such as:

  • Clip Markers: With these, you can easily attach a marker to a cassette.
  • Copper Backing: These are ideal for procedures involving high KV settings.
  • Classic Elite Markers: These are guaranteed to meet all of the demands of modern imaging procedures.
  • Wafer Thin Markers: With an easy bucky clearance, these will accommodate all of the latest modern digital equipment.

Lab Glasses for Radiation and Laser Protection | Kemper Medical

Nike 5002 Radiation Protection Glasses - Matte Blue

Why Eye Protection Is Necessary

Working in a laboratory setting, in certain industries, often means working with high levels of radiation. Among the various measures taken to ensure the safety of technicians are lab glasses, which shield the eyes from harmful levels of radiation.

Lab Glasses - NIKE BRAZEN LEADED GLASSESKemper Medical provides these crucial lab glasses to technicians in various fields. The kind of radiation our lab glasses shield against is actually at such a high wavelength that it is entirely invisible to the human eye. The damage that can be caused by this form of radiation is that of ionization – the breaking down of the balanced (neutral) atomic structure, and therefore cellular structure, of the eye. This can eventually lead to cancer and radiation induced cataracts.

The reason lab glasses are so important for laboratory technicians is because of their risk of consistent radiation exposure over time, which is the biggest factor of concern. Patients undergoing x-rays require less protection, as the possible damage caused by these rare exposures to radiation is minimal compared to the damage of habitual exposure to radiation dosages that technicians experience over time. Patients undergoing x-rays for diagnostic purposes experience this radiation exposure very rarely, whereas the technicians performing these diagnostic x-rays are working around high levels of radiation as a matter of course throughout their daily lives.

This is why we at Kemper Medical are dedicated to providing the highest quality lab glasses at the lowest possible prices. Low prices in this case does not mean you are getting an inferior product. Our lab glasses are comprised of some of the most cutting edge technology available in the industry. Despite this fact, they are also comfortable, stylish, and easy to wear throughout your entire shift if need be.

We provide lab glasses to technicians in a variety of radiological environments, such as:

  • Doctors offices
  • Physicians offices
  • Dental clinics
  • Pain clinics
  • Imaging facilities
  • Veterinarian offices

How Our Lab Glasses Protect Your Visual Structures

Kemper Medical provides lab glasses that are comprised of high quality lead, a natural radiation blocker, and one that greatly reduces the amount of harmful radiation that can enter the eye and cause ionization.

Our lab glasses will protect all visual structures, including:

  • Iris: The colored part of the eye
  • Sclera: The white outer layer of the eye
  • Conjunctiva: The mucous membrane that covers the front of the eye
  • Retinal Blood Vessels: The tiny veins and arteries within the eye

Lab Glasses - MODEL F10 ECONOMY RADIATION PROTECTION GLASSESHowever, the most important visual structure our lab glasses protect is the lens of the eye. This is the clear portion of the eye, and is responsible for directing and focusing light onto the retina. The eyes are particularly sensitive to radiation, and the lense even more so. Relatively low levels of ionizing radiation can produce deleterious effects in the lens rather quickly, including cancer and radiation induced cataracts, which differ from natural cataracts that occur with age in that they manifest on the posterior part of the lense rather than the interior.

Our lab glasses provide visual protection through their high quality Schott German optical lenses made of a lead equivalency of 0.75mm. We also offer frames with 0.50mm Pb Eq of side protection. All of this protective material doesn’t make these lab glasses uncomfortable or unflattering. They are light, comfortable, stylish, and easy to wear throughout your entire shift.

We provide a wide range of different lab glasses comprised of frame styles that offer a high degree of radiation protection. Our equipment is commonly used in such environments as:

  • Cath Labs
  • Surgery suites
  • EP labs
  • Urological procedures
  • Interventional radiology
  • Pain management
  • Orthopedic surgery

No matter what the field is, you can rely on our lab glasses for maximum radiological protection.

Types of Lab Glasses We Provide

Premium Leaded Glasses

Our premium leaded lab glasses are some of the highest quality glasses available in the industry at the lowest prices you can find. As a company that is dedicated to the safety of technicians across a wide range of radiological fields, we are proud to offer these high quality glasses at prices that are affordable. When you purchase these glasses from Kemper Medical, you can rest assured you’re getting one of the best deals in the industry.

Leaded Eyewear

Lab Glasses - RAY BAN 5268 RADIATION PROTECTION GLASSESOur leaded eyewear lab glasses are crucial for protecting your eyes from x-rays. These lab glasses are comprised of some of the highest quality materials available, and will protect your eyes from the radiation produced by a number of different machines, such as:

  • Interventional radiology equipment
  • CT image scanners
  • Digital x-rays
  • Traditional x-rays

These kind of lab glasses are crucial if you are working in an area that does not have a shielded room to which you can retreat during times of possible radiation exposure. These glasses will keep you from getting radiation doses and provide you with the safety you need.

Although it may seem contrary to intuition, primary beam radiation is in fact less dangerous than scatter radiation. This is because scatter radiation is radiation that bounces off various surfaces, including medical equipment and patient’s bodies, and can quickly reach you even if you are outside of its direct path.

If you are working in an environment with direct beam radiation, scatter radiation, or both, our leaded eyewear will ensure the long-term health of your visual structures, shielding them from consistent radiation exposure.

Radiation Glasses

Lab Glasses - NIKE MOJO RADIATION PROTECTION GLASSESOur radiation lab glasses should always be worn when working around radiation. Fortunately, the material comprising them is both effective at blocking radiation without making them uncomfortable to wear, or unstylish for that matter. Many technicians fail to wear their lab glasses consistently as they find them uncomfortable or unflattering. When it comes to our radiation lab glasses, none of this is a problem, as they are comfortable, good looking, and easy to wear.

Our radiation glasses are also available in both prescription and non-prescription lenses.

Protective Glasses

Whether you are working at a dental office, a hospital, a medical office, or a radiology lab, our protective lab glasses can be worn easily whenever you need them, even throughout your entire shift, without discomfort. They’re comprised of some of the highest material that can be found in the industry. Best of all, with Kemper Medical, you can rest assured you are getting them at some of the lowest prices possible.

We also provide free shipping on most of our protective lab glasses as part of our dedication to technician safety. We pride ourselves on providing the best lab glasses at the lowest prices, ensuring the long-term health and safety of technicians in a variety of different fields.
