Meet Debbie M.

Wife, working mom of young kids, athlete, and occupational therapist for children and seniors, Debbie had her first real taste of healthcare at the age of 16 when she suffered a spinal cord injury in an emergency accident.

She came into contact with many nurses and doctors throughout her care and recovery. “Those experiences inspired me to be a good provider and show compassion towards the people I care for,” said Debbie, a licensed occupational therapist for 20 years.

Today, Debbie continues to pay it forward in her busy lifestyle as she is dedicated to providing the highest quality of life for her family and the patients she cares for, and she does not have extra time to manage sensitive skin issues that frequently arise with the children and elderly patients that she treats.

“As a mom and an OT, I think that I offer a unique perspective on wound care as I work hard to help my patients live a more productive and independent life. With the sensitive skin that my most of my young and elderly patients have, we seek creative ways to put our patients in a comfortable state of mind, and the last thing that I want is to create something else for them to think about with the additional pain that can occur when removing a wound dressing.

I need to understand how a wound will affect a patient as I strive to relate to their individual needs, limitations, and adaptabilities. With Comfort Release® wound coverage options, I know that my kids and patients will have the optimal adherence when it is on and it will be pain free when it’s time for removal.

With Comfort Release, I have the confidence that my management of a wound will not create another wound. And with that confidence, I can invest more care and time into my patient’s treatment and recovery. When they say my name and sincerely tell me thank you — that is the best feeling of all!”

“Ripping Off the Band-Aid” – Just a Metaphor Now…

We the American people, well, we like to band-aid everything.

We put on band-aids to cover up our failures, to hide battle wounds, and to temporarily mask heartbreak. We put on band-aids in an attempt to blunt pain, fear or doubt. We put on band-aids to try and ease the sting from the rejection we received, or to mend the burn we felt. We put on band-aids when we slip hard, and to ease the brunt of our falls.

When the hurt has passed, ripping off the band-aid makes us feel uncomfortable and resurrects the same pain that we put it on to cover in the first place. It makes us feel uncomfortable from the very moment we begin to think about ripping it off. When we aren’t sure that we want to go through with it; aren’t sure if we can. Hence the saying, just rip it off – without delay and FAST and then cover the sting with a warm palm to squelch the burn.

Rather than hurt all over again, we need to use smart-enabled adhesive bandages as a means of painless protection. We should put on a bandage as a means to add a necessary barrier between us and whatever we need protection from. Everything that has hurt us, or has the potential to without resurrecting the pain upon removal. We apply the same concept in medicine when treating a virus. We want a complete pharmaceutical-grade solution as opposed to a temporary cough drop of a fix.

It’s time to “rip off” the use of band-aids and turn to protection that goes on and stays on when you want it on and releases pain-free when you need it to. There is no need to open new wounds.

Comfort Release® has made this a reality and is a game-changer with breakthrough potential! Healing when on and healed when off. No pain and a healed wound gained!

Ask your doctor, “Why are you not using Comfort Release® on me?”
