Developed by an EMT and a Paramedic in San Diego, who, after getting spewed on one time too many decided to design a disposable body fluid containment bib.
And thus the Barf Bib company was born.
The Barf Bib is now manufactured with a tear resistant outer shell, an elastic neck opening for quick fitting and a flip up splash guard for ‘unresponsive patients’.
After a 3 month trial period The Barf Bib Company received significant positive feed back from police, first responders, and the general public that we decided to offer the BB08 to everyone. The BB08 offers complete protection for the conscious and unconscious patient. The BB08 has many features that make it a safe, fail resistant, and a practical way to go. Your protection is no joking matter.
As nurses, we are always having to deal with the perils of emergency evasive action from that semi-digested flying vomitissimo.
What do you think…..a useful bit of kit?
I would like to see the IBB100 (Intoxi-Barf Bib) specialised modification that has a draw string along the top so you can just pull it up and secure it over their head. I’m kidding of course.
It would need to be Velcro.
And a self sealing compartment that folds out neatly into a postal pack, so the ‘patients belongings’ might be mailed back to them. Still kidding.
OK then, I just know I am going to regret asking this, but…….Care to share your own experiences or tips with managing sick?
Wait. Oh yes…I have more. For your emisiserial edification, here is my own worst worst experience with Barf. (Warning: not to be read whilst eating).
Mouth to mouth regurgitation.
