Kidz-Med Thermofocus 5-in-1 Non-Contact Thermometer Available, Safety Prevention

WESTON, Fla., May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The World Health Organization heightened awareness in regards to the swine flu by raising the pandemic flu alert to the second highest level below a global outbreak. Kidz-Med Inc., a leading child health and safety product supplier in the US, has been fielding an increase in inquiries from select hospitals, airports and schools about its Kidz-Med Thermofocus 5-in-1 Non-Contact Thermometer. The entities are preparing to check adults and children for fevers that could possibly result from this current flu outbreak.

Kidz-Med is reaching out to let the public know about how the Kidz-Med Thermofocus can benefit them during this time, and to give tips on prevention and symptoms to watch for.

The Kidz-Med Thermofocus, which was used by medical personnel in Asia during the SARS epidemic (See BBC article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/2986469.stm), is an ideal instrument to use to diagnose fevers associated with the flu since it has absolutely no contact with the skin, making for a completely hygienic and non-invasive experience; a reading is taken in a second and the thermometer is clinically proven to be accurate and safe.

The Company's CEO, and pediatric clinician, Dr. Christopher F. Tirotta says, "Our goal here isn't to alarm, but simply to keep the public informed on prevention methods and symptoms to watch for. Being that we have been receiving multiple inquiries in regards to using the Thermofocus to diagnose swine flu symptoms, we want to let the public know that we are here to help."

Dr. Tirotta continues:

"The virus is not food-borne and has nothing to do wit
