Changes in weather, back-to-school germs, commuter travel, jobs in health care, stress and allergies are just a few of the factors working against you in the cold- and flu-avoidance areas. Bottom line, if your immune system is shaky and you hang around a lot of people, you’re wide open for a virus. And if you’re a stressed out school nurse that takes the train to work, well, um . . . good luck. 🙂
The key to prevention is protection. But with more than 200 strains of cold virus and three types of flu viruses floating around it’s no wonder that so many people catch these highly contagious bugs. All you have to do is inhale infected air, share infected items or touch tainted surfaces then touch your hands to your nose, eyes or mouth and BAM, the virus is yours. Flu shots are formulated to prevent Types A and B viruses, but can’t touch Type C. And the common cold, well, the causes of 30% to 50% of adult colds remain a mystery.
Allegro’s Cold/Flu Season Category has a wide selection of products to help prevent and relieve cold and flu symptoms. Ideal for everyone from individuals to caregivers, schools, offices, stores, clinics, homes and hospitals – it’s time for everyone to take stock and be prepared.
Cold and Flu Products
Personal Protection Masks and Hand Sanitizers – If you are in close contact with cold or flu victims, protect yourself from inhaling virus infected droplets in the air with a face mask (level of effectiveness depends on masks rating) and keep your hands sanitized to provide the first level of protection against viruses.
Exam Gloves– Gloves provide protection from viruses that can survive on surfaces – especially in health care and caregiver settings. Keep a box handy also for household chores, messes and hobbies. Great for changing the oil, gardening, cleaning, pet clean-up and much more.
Shop all Exam Gloves
Cold & Flu Diagnostic Products– With flu comes fever, which is likely the easiest way to distinguish between a flu and a cold. What’s your temperature? Also find tongue depressors, otoscopes and other diagnostic products for kids and adults alike. Say ahhhhhhh.
Shop all Diagnostic Products
Pain Relief / Comfort – Stock up on products that will help you feel better if that ol’ flu or cold bug catches you. Heating pads, cooling pads and fluffy slippers, mostly.

Quit Wettin’ the Bed, Fred
The start of a new school year is stressful for everyone, but even more so for families with bed wetters. Besides the lack of sleep and overall frustration you’re ALL feeling, your child is also likely dealing with significant emotional and social issues associated with bed wetting.
If you are tired of the stress (and mess), try a bedwetting alarm as a training tool.
Bed wetting alarms detect moisture and awaken the child when just a drop or two of urine hits the sensor pad. They are worn in the child’s undergarments. Check out the unisex DRI Sleeper Alarm System. There is also a Nite Train’r for Males and a Nite Train’r for Females.
Crissy, an Allegro customer from Fullerton, CA says, “Our six year old son never had dry nights, even as a preschooler. He is a very sound sleeper, but after two nights he began waking up to the alarm…he has had three dry nights during the third week of use.”
Don’t wait until you’re at the end of your rope. Hopefully a bedwetting alarm will quickly let you remove bedwetting from the list of stressors in the morning rush to school.

No more Starvin’, Marvin
It’s no secret that kids don’t always eat right. At least when they are home, you can do a better job of monitoring it. Once they’re off to school it’s anyone’s bet. If you know, or suspect, or have been told that little Suzy is not getting enough calories, there is a simple answer. Supplement their meals with balanced shakes, juice drinks or puddings. We have a complete selection of Child Nutrition products – our most popular being Pediasure, Boost Kid Essentials, and Boost Pudding.
These products cover picky eaters, skinny kids, special needs, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, reduced appetite, super-active, low-weight, chronic illnesses, short-term illnesses, malnutrition – pretty much everything. There’s no reason for you to worry about Junior getting enough to eat. Kids love this stuff.

Asthma is serious business. According to the CDC there are approximately 16 million Americans who currently have asthma, 7 million of whom are children. In fact, asthma is the most prevalent chronic illness in children affecting nearly 10% of the population.
Asthma attacks can last for minutes or even days and are generally characterized by coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness.
Asthma is generally treated or controlled with anti-inflammatory drugs and bronchodilators but asthma symptoms can be substantially reduced by avoiding exposure to known allergens and respiratory irritants such as pollen, dust mites, mold and animal dander. Other asthma triggers include irritants like smoke, pollution, fumes, cleaning chemicals and sprays.
Popular Asthma Products
Nebulizers– Nebulizers deliver lifesaving aerosolized liquid medicine to the lungs through a tube-like mouthpiece. Allegro offers a wide assortment of nebulizers including the latest piston-powered, pediatric nebs, hand-held ultrasonic nebulizers and compact nebulizers. We suggest the MABISMist II Handheld Ultrasonic Nebulizer, the CompMist Compressor Nebulizer Kit or the Beetle Neb Compact Ultrasonic Nebulizer.
See All Nebulizers and Accessories
Metered Dose Inhalers (MDI)– Doctors most commonly prescribe inhalers to deliver asthma medication, largely because these are more convenient and portable than nebulizers.
See our full line of Breathing Therapy Products.
Peak Flow Meters – Highly Recommended and Low Cost!!Asthma sufferers ages 4 and up should have a peak flow meter at home to help recognize early signs of worsening asthma or a pending attack. Readings can predict an attack hours or even days before asthma symptoms appear. Be sure you always know your baseline measurement that reflects your best breathing.
Peak Flow Meter Ranges per WebMD:
- If your peak flow meter shows numbers between 50% and 80% of your personal best, an asthma attack has likely begun.
- A number below 50% signals an emergency that needs immediate attention.
- Call 911 if you have trouble walking or talking due to shortness of breath, or if your lips are blue or gray.
Finger Pulse Oximeters– A pulse oximeter is a diagnostic tool that enables the indirect measurement of the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin in the blood. Pulse oximetry is commonly used in the assessment of children with asthma and wheezing. Parents or caregivers of children with asthma may have a home oximeter that is used, under a doctor’s instruction and recommendation, when asthma symptoms are present to determine the severity of an asthma attack.
Allergy Products– Half the battle of managing asthma is avoiding asthma causing triggers. See our Allergy Condition for products to help you stay away from asthma and allergy irritants. Pay special attention to our allergy-free bedding and pillows and Humidifiers / Vaporizers.
Visit Allegro’s Asthma Condition product listing for all asthma products and may you breathe easy all the days of your life.

It’s hard to predict how the looming H1N1 Swine Flu Virus will impact your family, community or workplace, but what with all the hooplah it is best to be prepared.
Allegro’s broad range of antimicrobial germ killers lets you order the same products used in hospitals and other health care facilities – for use in your own home, vehicle, office, school or social gathering places. We suggest you order these hospital grade disinfectants and sanitizers today, as demand is expected to be high.
Why stock up on antimicrobials? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the H1N1 virus is thought to spread mainly person-to-person through the coughing or sneezing of infected people. Droplets from a cough or sneeze move through the air and can transmit the flu to people close by. Sometimes people may also become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.
How to Protect Your Health
- When you cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue. Throw it in the trash afterwards… please.
- To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces clean (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) by wiping them down with a household disinfectant. Allegro has many Surface Disinfectants to choose from, including disinfectant towelettes, spray cleaners, sanitizing sprays, wipes, home care kits and foggers.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
- Avoid contact with sick people.
- If you’re sick with flu-like illness, the CDC recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours AFTER your fever is gone, except to get medical care or other necessities.
See All Cold/Flu Season Products including diagnostic aids, pain relief, personal protection items and more.
See All Swine Flu Category Products including gloves, hand sanitizers, masks and surface disinfectants.
Stay current with CDC recommendations at the 2009 H1N1 Flu Website.
