Special feature: MedCallOutfitter Kit™ from MedCallAssist™

 

Here at A Luxury Travel Blog HQ, we were recently sent a premium grade medical kit for luxury travellers. Rather uniquely, the MedCallOutfitter Kit™ from MedCallAssist™ comes complete with a one year physician call line for any urgent questions or prescription needs which you can call at any time, day or night. Although produced in the USA, you don’t need to be a US resident to use it – in fact, MedCallAssist™ have many international clients and multi-lingual capabilities.  This offers the user peace of mind and potentially the opportunity to avoid long waits or queueing for a nurse.

The bag itself is a quality item, made by Voodoo Tactical, that comes in two colours (tan or black).  You can just tell by the feel that it would stand up well to rugged environments if your travels took you to such a place.

Once opened, you discover that the bag has three compartments each loaded with a generous supply of medical gear (items such as scissors, tweezers and nail clippers as well as things like gloves, band-aids and tongue depressors) and over-the-counter medications.  On top of that, there’s also a whole host of medication you wouldn’t normally expect to find in a medical kit – items such as a 1mg vial of epinephrine (aka adrenaline) which is used to treat conditions such as cardiac arrest or anaphylaxis.

In short, there’s a substantial amount of kit and medication in just one bag.  And, should you ever be faced with a situation where there is no doctor to hand, the peace of mind that comes with having so much equipment to hand and knowing expert advice is just a phone call away – no matter what time of day it is or where you are in the world – will come as a great comfort to many.  Afterall, it’s critically important that any medication is administered correctly.

Recent users of the service have called with anything from eye infections to urinary tract infections and have been able to take advantage of the advice given without the need to curtail their respective trips. And whilst the service might not replace seeing a doctor first hand, it’s certainly a handy piece of kit to be able to take with you on your travels, particularly if you are heading off the beaten track and medical assistance might be less easy to come by.

The base cost of the kit is $375 with various optional extras at further cost. For example, an auto-injecting epi pen will add a further $115 to the purchase price, or you can even add an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) for an additional $850.

    Is there enough space left in the bag for a Twix?!

    Just about, Chris… yes. Is that considered an important component of any first aid kit over at Destinology? ;-)
