What is Suresign Meningitis Emergency Test?

Meningitis is a life-threatening illness that can kill in hours. Be prepared with Suresign’s meningitis emergency testing kit that can aid the detection of meningitis. Included in this kit is a magnifying test bar and a full symptoms chart so you can act quickly if you spot the signs of meningitis.

How to use this product

Always use this Meningitis Emergency Test exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Use the included chart to make reference of your symptoms, and if you have a rash, you can use the test bar. To use, press the bar firmly against the rash and rock it gently from side to side. If the rash doesn’t disappear, you must seek emergency medical help.

What is meningitis?

Meningitis is a very serious infection that affects the protective membranes surrounding the brain and the spinal cord (meninges). Meningitis can affect anyone, but it’s most common in babies, children, teenagers and young adults. If it’s not treated quickly, it can cause life threatening blood poisoning known as sepsis (septicaemia) that can cause permanent damage to the brain or nerves.

How to prevent meningitis

Meningitis can be spread through sneezing, coughing and kissing. Usually the infection is spread by people who carry the virus or bacteria in their nose or throat, but they are not actually unwell themselves.

To prevent meningitis, it’s important that you and your child’s vaccinations are up to date–speak to your GP if you’re unsure. Meningitis can be caused by many different infections, so several vaccinations may be needed to protect you against it. If you need more information about what vaccines protect you against meningitis, visit the NHS website.
