The Arc Early Alert Pack helps you accurately check for meningitis and septicaemia wherever you are
Every parent worries about meningitis. This infection of the brain develops suddenly and can be fatal, with one in 10 cases ending in death. That’s why it’s so incredibly important to catch it early so it can be treated. But that can be tricky – many of the signs of meningitis are the same as flu symptoms. These include a temperature, headache and vomiting.
The tell-tale sign of meningitis that most people know about is a blotchy red rash that doesn’t fade when pressed with a glass. But symptoms can change, and you may not feel confident diagnosing your child in such an uncertain way. That’s why Arc have put together a comprehensive kit that helps you accurately check for the main two symptoms of meningitis, as well as including a chart to help you track temperature changes over time.
Inside your Early Alert Pack you’ll find the Meningitis Arc, a specially designed curved piece of clear, durable plastic. You can press it against your child’s skin to check rashes. What makes it more effective than using a glass is the diagram printed on it; you can use it to compare your child’s rash to the appearance of a meningitis one. It also features printed details of the other symptoms to look for, making it simple to check your child’s health as quickly as possible.
Also included in the kit is a flexible plastic forehead thermometer. Its easy to read colour changing display will show you your child’s temperature within 15 seconds. The colour coding allows you to see at a glance whether a fever has developed. The leaflet included with your Arc Alert Pack contains detailed information about meningitis. This is invaluable when travelling; take it with you so you can always be alert even when you don’t have access to the internet. It also has a chart on which you can record your child’s temperature, medication intake and symptoms. This will help you to monitor your child’s condition as well as to keep track of things you may need to tell a doctor. Designed by medical experts, this pack is an essential part of any parent’s first aid kit.
