Aesthetic nurse prescriber Jacqueline Naeini has launched Managing Complications Emergency Bags for practitioners, which includes essential tools in dealing with possible complications post procedure.
The British Association of Cosmetic Nurses member, who runs the Face Training Company in South Yorkshire, initially created her own emergency bag due to travelling between locations and fear of forgetting necessary items.
Naeini said, “In the past, I have shown delegates my own emergency bag and its contents. Because of this, I received many requests to create additional emergency bags, so I decided it would be a good idea to allow all delegates the chance to purchase one on completion of the course.”
She continued, “We now receive independent requests from nurses in the specialty, who say that they feel much safer having all emergency supplies in one organised bag.”
The emergency bag contains; a copy of Expert Consensus on Complications of Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Filler Treatment by Mr Christopher Inglefield, Fiona Collins and Marie Duckett, guidance and consent forms on the use of hyaluronidase, a guidance document on the possible event of an anaphylactic reaction, syringes and needles, heat pads, a respiratory support mask, aspirin, antihistamines and sterilising materials. Practitioners are also advised to add prescription drugs such as adrenaline and hyaluronidase to coincide with the recommendations outlined in the AMEG Consensus.
Practitioners who have not completed a training course with the company are still able to request an emergency bag.
