If you know anyone suffering from Lice, Super Lice or Nits this post is for them!
#HealthCare4All are always searching the globe for the BEST products that are not going to break the bank! We have found an amazing gadget that will rid your children of LICE AND NITS and we have been ITCHING to tell you about it! Its called the LiceTec V Comb. #HealthCare4All are also the UK Distributors!
Why is it so amazing?
Unlike most products on the market today, the LiceTec Comb removes both Lice AND Nits. It is completely safe & extremely easy to use. It works by vacuum, so there is no risk of an electrical current to the user or the patient.
You can actually see the lice and nits getting sucked into the illuminated filter so you KNOW that you have caught them! This eliminates the guesswork you have from other products. It even works on Lice that are resistant to chemicals which is becoming a worldwide problem called SUPER LICE!
It can be used as many times as necessary which a major reason we love it so much. The alternative is using lotions that cost £10- £15 and can only be used once! The LiceTec V comb is only £36.95 from HealthCare4All!
What we also love about the LiceTec V-comb is that after it has sucked the lice and nits into the filter, you simply put the cap on and throw the filter away and you KNOW they have been safely disposed of!
As it is a registered medical device, it is marked with CE & FDA approved to give you peace of mind that you have a quality product!
We like to test our internationally sourced products and one thing that we suggest is that Technique on how to use the Comb is important. So please take a look at the instruction videos below.
If you want to read more about Super Lice, there has been so much in the press recently. I have listed a few of them below FYI
We know there are cheaper models available, however for us, the most important thing to note when searching for Oximeters is Accuracy and Reliability! This is why if someone asks me at my pharmacy or at HealthCare4All for my opinion, these are the BEST finger pulse oximeter to buy.
What are Pulse Oximeters?
Pulse oximeters help you monitor the amount of oxygen carried around your body. Its completely painless and all you have to do is attach it to a fingertip for a few moments to get a reading.
An oxygen level of greater than 95% is generally considered to be a normal oxygen level and a level of 92% or less suggests low blood oxygen.
In addition to oxygen level it also tells you your pulse rate. For adults a normal pulse rate is 60-80 beats per minute, however your heart rate would be expected to increase with exercise and and oxygen saturation may slightly decrease (it should still remain at 90% or greater though).
I wanted to find one that is easy to use at home for at-home patient monitoring. For people with COPD, pulse oximetry is useful as a tool for patients to use at home to assist with their management under physician guidance. Monitoring your oxygen saturation level will help you to adjust your oxygen flow at home, during exercise, and during social activities. It can also assist your doctor in deciding if your COPD is getting worse.
For People with COPD, asthma and other lung diseases who want to be active, the quality of the oximeter they use is important. Accurate readings are very important – particularly when patients are active and their oxygen level may be dropping to provide accurate readings especially when you are active.
The Prince 100F handheld pulse oximeter is a portable device for monitoring SpO2, pulse rate and pulse strength. It is robust, fast and reliable, so the device is suitable for use both at home and in a hospital environment.
It is an upgraded model of the 100E, the main differences being as follows:

Plethysmogram display of SpO2

Why we love the Heal Force Prince
The reason we love the Heal force prince is because not only does it work straight out of the box, it can be used for both adults and children! There are cheaper models on the market, however, with Oximeters it is imperative the readings are accurate otherwise the product is pointless. The Heal Force Princes readings are Very accurate and reliable and will give you peace of mind!
In order to use it for children or infants you simply attach a probe and then it will work for all ages! Allow me to introduce you to the Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port. Its very similar to the 100f however is £119.99 (inc VAT), so thats £70 CHEAPER and a fantastic bit of kit.
It comes with preset alarm limits (these cannot be adjusted by user), and also When the external paediatric or infant sensors are connected, the finger clip sensor will be deactivated and the alarm limits change automatically! Please see below for the limits*
HealthCare4All are not the only ones that love it. Its fans include GP Surgeries and health clinics too as its so versitile, and its readings are accurate and reliable. All you need to do to use it is put your finger in it! It automatically switches on.
Our verified customer reviews have been amazing, here are just a couple of examples…
The Heal Force Prince 100I Fingertip Pulse Oximeter + Probe Port is in a class of its own. I was initially taken aback by the above average cost of this device. I have used several other much cheaper brands over the last several years with mostly disappointing results (inconsistent results, early breakdowns etc.). However having used this device most days for a few months I can testify to its reliability, excellent build quality and consistently accurate results. On every occasion it has held up..
Excellent product, we bought this to monitor our two year olds oxygen levels as he suffers with asthma and we were having to continually rush him to the doctors to be checked. At first we tried a cheaper monitor which was not accurate and hard to obtain a reading. We ordered this one and it has given an accurate reading every time (without either of the children’s probes being needed). Well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Fantastic product which will give us peace of mind.
To sum up…
The Prince 100I fingertip pulse oximeter is suitable for adult use using the integrated finger clip probe and infant or paediatric use via a wired probe (3 versions: infant bandage-style probes, paediatric clip sensors, and paediatric fingerstall probes available as optional accessories from stock).
The 100I oximeter is suitable for use in the home, medical institutions and care homes.
Its is ridiculously easy to use due to the lack of operational buttons.
Simply insert your finger into the oximeter and the unit powers on, takes a reading and then turns off 8 seconds after the finger is removed.

A nebuliser is a medical device that transforms medication from liquid to a mist so it can be inhaled into the lungs more easily. Being inhaled through a mouthpiece, the dissolved drugs are able to reach affected areas directly and quickly. Nebuliser machines are an effective way of delivering certain types of medication to infants and children suffering from asthma, or anybody else who finds it difficult to use an inhaler.
As Web MD informs using nebulisers to deliver certain medication is often referred to as “breathing treatment.” Nebuliser machines are available in both table top models, typically designed for home use, and portable versions. Whilst table top models have to be plugged into the electricity mains, portable nebulisers machines are usually smaller and are run on batteries.
What are nebulisers used for?
Nebulisers are used for the treatment, both domiciliary and emergency, of many respiratory conditions.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF)
People who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis are one of the primary users of nebuliser machines. Those with CF often rely on saline nebulisers, as the machine can allow the patient to inhale saline solutions more easily. The saline helps to thin mucus, preventing bacteria to grow in a warm environment. This helps antibiotics be delivered more effectively
Chronic Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
As the BBC informs, nebuliser machines are also used by patients suffering from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a type of obstructive lung condition, which is characterised by an individual having poor air flow in the long term.
Emphysema affects millions of people around the world. Smoking is one of the leading causes of this lung condition. A nebuliser machines is often used to give emphysema patients medication through steam formation to help them cope with the disease and feel better. As My Emphysema Symptoms writes, nebuliser machines can be a faster and less time-consuming way for emphysema patients to get treated without having any side effects.
If an asthma patient has used a nebuliser during a hospital visit, they may be recommended one at home, if their GP or consultant believes they may benefit from one. These machines can be an effective way to provide respiratory assistance to people who find it difficult to use an inhaler, such as young children.
There are many different types of nebulisers to buy. Healthcare4all has a range of nebuliser machines available to buy, including asthma nebulisers, emphysema nebulisers, turboneb nebulisers, allergy nebulisers, COPD nebulisers, portable nebulisers, world traveller nebulisers, microair nebulisers, microneb nebulisers, amongst others.
The Beurer IH50 Portable Ultrasonic Battery/Main Nebuliser is an ultrasonic portable nebuliser that is designed for the treatment of the upper and lower respiratory tract. It is used to treat colds, asthma, and respiratory diseases such as COPD and emphysema. With a vibrating membrane nebulisation, the Beurer IH50 Portable Ultrasonic Battery/Main Nebuliser provides fast and effective inhalation.
