Help your patients keep track of alternating medications…
If you’re a clinician, productivity matters. The Comfort Control Clock™ has enjoyed rapid adoption because clinicians quickly realize it takes much less time to teach patients how to alternate medications using it, compared to the time it takes to explain how to use a written log or to download and configure a mobile app on a patient’s device. Clinicians also feel more confident their instructions are understood and will be followed by patients.
The Comfort Control Clock™ is intended as a patient reminder aid, not a stand-alone education document about why and how to alternate medications. You will still need to talk to your patient and/or provide supplementary written information. Use the Comfort Control Clock™ to simplify and shorten this necessary education process.
Increase patient safety and reduce confusion with alternating medications.
A growing number of clinicians are recommending the practice of alternating acetaminophen and ibuprofen every 3 hours to achieve optimal pain control without the use of opioids [REF]. While this approach offers substantial benefits to the patient, some patients have trouble remembering which medication they took most recently. This creates the risk of taking the same medication twice or more in a row, which could lead to an overdose [REF].
The Comfort Control Clock™ is a patent-pending device to help patients remember which medication should be taken at which times. Instead of a phone app, it is designed as a physical device that can be quickly referenced and kept together with the relevant bottles of medication.
Four clock hands are fixed relative to each other and rotate as a unit, so they always point 3 hours apart. Alternating color and labeling indicates which medicines should be used at which times. The hands can be set when medication begins and rotated as needed if doses are taken late or missed.
The Comfort Control Clock™ can be used for acetaminophen and ibuprofen, or other pairs of pharmaceuticals that should be alternated every 3 hours. Instead of a phone app, it is designed as a physical device that can be quickly referenced and kept together with the relevant bottles of medication.
