Easing Hospital Fears with 4Umedicaldesigns

Guest Blogger, Nick Nastasi from 4UMedicaldesigns

What is 4Umedicaldesigns?

At 4Umedicaldesigns we have a mission to reduce medical anxiety by decorating dismal/intimidating medical devices like IV bags and syringes to look more child friendly. As a child, our founder Nicholas Nastasi was briefly on an IV bag and also had a huge fear of needles, so he decided to create a product to help alleviate these medical worries for young children. Our patent-pending medical device stickers cover the blank portion of a syringe or IV bag with kid-friendly images and don’t cover any of the measurements or information on the device.

Who does it help?

4Umedicaldesigns Medical Stickers help pediatric patients that receive needles procedures and IV bags. Studies show that decorative IV bags reduced patient aversion by 83%, fear by 53%, and anxiety by 73%. Decorative syringes reduced patient aversion by 79%, fear by 53%, and anxiety by 51% (Department of Internal Medicine, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center).

Where to purchase

Our IV bag and syringe stickers can be purchased at 4umedicaldesigns.com where we offer a range of different sticker designs and sizes. For large order inquiries and quotes, we can be reached at info@4Umedicaldesigns.com.
