Review of NURU Emergency First Aid Card Deck, With Giveaway Contest

Recently I was asked if I could review a deck of Emergency First Aid cards that are sold by NURU.

The deck overall is full of useful information that you would need in order to help someone during a medical emergency. I also give my personal thumbs up for a job well done in getting all of the information needed onto just thirty cards, which I am certain was no easy task.

The information is easy to read, well thought out and and covers things like CPR reminders, Heart Attacks, Shock, Monitoring Vital Signs, and Working With EMS. As a former First Responder, the last one is my personal favorite that I wish would be taught in every school.

I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first in how good these cards would be, since stopping to read the cards during an emergency is not really productive. However, the first few cards cover this, and they recommend taking a first aid course, which I also recommend. They also suggest reading the cards while waiting in line, or on the bus and other such places. The cards make a great way to refresh the information, and take quick action.

If you do not have any first aid training these cards would best serve you if you read through them and perhaps refer to them if you must, but if you read through them, you should know enough to handle the situation until first responders arrive.

I recommend these cards to have on hand for reference during emergencies and to read at your leisure. At a cost of only $8.00 they are well worth the money and would make a great gift for someone you care about, or even a co-worker.

Seems like a great product to throw in a first aid kit in your backpack when camping or hiking! A lot more compact than a book!

These look amazing. We work in the emergency preparedness business and these would be great to have in any emergency kit. It's nice to see a fair price as well.

I think this is PERFECT for our girls. We are working on first aid training as a troop and these cards would be great for everyone to have as a personal pocket reference as reminders. You should consider offering discounted prices to scout groups for this purpose. At a price of $8 per deck, when you have 15 girls that expense really adds up quickly.

These cards really are an excellent way to have first aid tips handy. Personally I think they are well priced, but perhaps if you contact them directly mention you found them here on Disaster Preparedness Blog you can get a discount.

Can't guarantee that you will get one but it does not hurt to ask them directly. Unfortunately I cannot help you directly in that area.
