Decorate your office while tracking patient growth

Pedia Pals room decal kits are a colorful way to decorate your office and take height measurements of your patients. There are a variety of themed kits, with creatures such as dinosaurs, fish, puppies, and jungle animals-each includes a height chart starting at 2' and ending at 6'. The kits contain enough decals to cover a 10' x 10' room. Decals are made of fade-resistant, washable vinyl and are individually cut for easy application.

Kid-sized system works to keep little noses clean

Nasopure's Little Squirt To Go kit has everything that's needed to keep little noses clear of allergens, dust, germs, and other pollutants. There's an angled-tip nasal wash bottle designed to clean the nose comfortably without bending, or twisting the neck. There are 20 pre-measured salt mixture packets (swish stix)-a combination of hypertonic and buffered salt made with pure, high-grade sodium chloride and sodium bicarbonate. The kit also comes with instructions for use and a small travel box of tissues. For more information, visit http://www.nasopure.com/.
