Duration Health


How will I know how to use the medications?

Every bag comes with online and printed educational materials explaining the appropriate use of each medication or supply, risks and benefits of use, and when to avoid use. Furthermore, medications in the bag have been specifically chosen for their low risk of complications and low toxicity, and have a long track record of safety.

Our treatment protocols are based on well-established nursing triage and emergency medical services protocols, with clear instructions in emergency scenarios when no doctor is available.

What if I'm allergic or experience side effects from a medication?

Allergic reactions are a possibility with any medication. All bags include first-line medications to self-treat an allergic reaction should one occur.

Your provider will discuss potential side effects with you and when you should discontinue use of a medication.

Use of any medication is associated with some degree of risk. We believe that in an emergency situation, the benefits of having these medications immediately available to you may outweigh the potential risks.

Can I contact a Duration Health provider if I have a question about a medication?

Yes, you can reach our providers at [email protected]. However, we do not provide emergency consultations via email. In an emergency, call 911 or seek local emergency care. We do not provide clinical support by phone.

I'm a medical professional. Can I use the medications in my bag to treat others?

No. Your bag, including any medications prescribed to you, is for your personal use only.
