Do not spray in eyes. Over spraying may cause frostbite. Freezing may alter skin pigmentation. Use caution when using product on persons with poor circulation.

Apply only to intact oral mucous membranes. Do not use on genital mucous membranes. Consult your pediatrician when using on children 4 years old and younger.

Gebauer’s Ethyl Chloride Only:

Ethyl Chloride is FLAMMABLE and should never be used in the presence of an open flame, or electrical cautery equipment. Inhalation should be avoided as it may produce narcotic and general anesthetic effects, and may produce deep anesthesia or fatal coma or cardiac arrest. Cutaneous sensitization may occur, but appears to be extremely rare. Long term exposure may cause liver or kidney damage. Published clinical trial results support the use in children three years of age and older.

Being part of a positive team versus one that is negative can make a world of difference. Hopefully, you have participated in teams that have been so gratifying and productive that you want to work with those people again or replicate that success to other team environments in your life. Conversely, many of us may have participated in a group or committee where some of the members did not participate, say or did things to only “stir the pot” or sabotaged the work of others.  These can be frustrating experiences and can decrease morale and productivity.

Stress is a normal part of life. In moderation, stress can be good for you! It affects everyone, no matter what your profession, if you are on the job or at home. According to a study printed in a National Institute of Health (NIH) publication, healthcare professions are among the most stressful professions. Healthcare professionals are responsible for the care given to many generations of patients from birth to geriatrics.
