New look, new paperback price and new affiliate program for ebook

January 27, 2022

It’s a new year and we’ve got some good news and a little bad news.

First some good news … we recently redesigned our Fedhealth.net site and have a new shopping cart and affiliate program provider for our PDF ebook with some cool new features.

The bad news is due to increased paper and freight costs, our 266-page IT’S A DISASTER! paperback cost for standard red books (by the case) and custom book orders (1k & up) bundled into large bulk prints is now $6.00 U.S. each (60% off list) plus freight.

We will continue to provide free customization, and the freight cost will be whatever our printer and warehouse charges us so we’ll provide estimates before any bulk orders ship.

Some more good news is … a NEW option for anyone wanting custom printed books in small quantities and on rush orders is short-run pricing that will totally depend on the quantity needed. The per book price will be less than our $14.99 list, but more than $6 each price mentioned above due to the smaller print.

Our 282-page PDF ebook is still only $5 each and you can now “gift” ebook purchases to your family and friends. And custom ebooks in bulk are still discounted as low as $2 each.

Fedhealth’s Affiliate Program associated with our preparedness and first aid ebook is now through a provider with more features so consider joining for free to earn 30% (or $1.50) on each $5 ebook ordered using a special link on your site, blog or social media.

Also, if you have a large fan, member or customer base, we can design a custom ebook for free so you can raise funds with it for yourself and/or a charity – learn more.

New paperback pricing + short run options in 2022 (ebooks still 70% or more off)

December 9, 2021

Unfortunately with the price of everything going up it is impacting book publishers with increased paper and freight costs, meaning it is going to affect our clients, as well.

For many years our $5 bulk book price (70% off list) included freight in the U.S., but shipping costs have been brutal on us the past 2 years, so we had to make a tough decision that hopefully we can reverse someday if the economy turns around.

As of January 2022, our 266-page IT’S A DISASTER! paperback (both standard red books [by the case] and custom book orders [1k & up] bundled into large bulk prints) will be $6.00 U.S. each (60% off list) plus freight.

We will continue to provide FREE customization and we always pass through whatever freight discounts are given to us (i.e. we charge whatever our printer charges us.)

Also a NEW option for anyone wanting custom printed books in small quantities and on rush orders is short-run pricing that will totally depend on the quantity needed. It will be less than our $14.99 list price, but again, depends on how many custom books you want. We will have some stepped pricing online soon, and we can always provide estimates in the meantime.

Prices will remain the same on our 284-page interactive PDF ebook that starts at only $5 each (~70% off list) and goes as low as $2 each (or less) in large bulk with unlimited customization.

Please call 520.907.2153 or email sales@fedhealth.net anytime for quotes esp. if you want to lock in the 2021 $5 / book bulk price with free freight for now, and learn more at fedhealth.net

Fedhealth is a sole source, small business registered on many local, state and federal procurement systems in case that helps when using grants.


Subconjunctival hemorrhage (it looks worse than it is … plus first aid tips for other eye injuries)

November 14, 2021

Last Tuesday when I woke up I lightly rubbed my eye a bit since it felt like there was something in it, then when I looked in mirror I saw this red blob in the corner of my eye.

Needless to say we were a tiny bit freaked but, after Bill and I did a quick search, we learned it’s called a subconjunctival hemorrhage (sub-kun-JUNK-tih-vul HEM-uh-ruj).

According to the Mayo Clinic, a subconjunctival hemorrhage occurs when a tiny blood vessel breaks just underneath the clear surface of your eye (conjunctiva). It’s like having a bruise on your skin, but the conjunctiva can’t absorb blood very quickly, so the blood gets trapped.

Mayo goes on to say… despite its appearance, the eye bleed looks worse than it is and should cause no change in your vision, discharge or pain. The only discomfort may be a scratchy feeling on the surface of the eye.

I didn’t have any pain or swelling and the blood was only in the white part of my eye that first morning. Since then blood has spread across most of my eye. We also noticed a tiny bump by my outer eye a few days later so it’s possible it was a bug bite, but no issues or pain.

But I sure look weird – esp. with makeup on one eye and the other looks … just gross. Too bad it didn’t happen a few weeks ago since it would’ve been cool for Halloween.

Cedars-sinai.org says most people will not need any treatment and the subconjunctival hemorrhage will go away in a few weeks. It will turn from red to brown then to yellow.  

(Adding below photo on Day 14 since initial bleed – mine went from red to yellow.)

Now … since we’re on the topic of eyes, we also wanted to share some first aid tips about Eye Injuries in general from our preparedness and first aid manual.

Things to watch for…

Severe or constant pain or burning

Object stuck in the eye (like a piece of metal or glass)

Redness and swelling

Blurry vision, trouble keeping eye open, light sensitive

Vapors or fumes in the air

What to do…

• Avoid rubbing eye since this can cause more damage.

• Have victim sit down with their head tilted backwards.

• Wash hands before touching eye area.

• If injury is from a chemical, make a note of the name for Poison Control if possible.

If the injury is a loose foreign object:

• Gently separate eyelids to see if you can locate a foreign object – can try removing it by wiping gently with damp tissue.

• Ask victim if he/she wears contact lenses, and if so, ask him or her to remove them.

• Have victim lean over sink or lie on back, hold eye open, and gently flush eye with lukewarm water or a saline solution.

• Get medical help if you are not successful.

If there is an object sticking out of the eye:

• Put thick soft pads around the object that is sticking out.

• DO NOT try to remove or press on the object!

• Carefully wrap with a roller bandage to hold thick pads around the object.

• Get medical attention immediately!

If injury is from a blow to the eye:

• Apply an icepack to reduce pain and swelling.

• Seek medical attention if damage to eye or blurred vision.

If the injury is from a chemical:

• Call your local Poison Control Center (or 1-800-222-1222 in the U.S.) and have name of chemical handy, if possible.

• If victim is wearing contact lenses, ask Poison Control if they should be removed and whether to keep or dispose of them! If okay and able to take out, ask victim to remove lenses.

• Have victim lean over sink, lie down, or get in shower – hold eye(s) open, and gently flush with lukewarm water for at least 15 minutes. (If only one eye has chemical in it, make sure head is turned so it doesn’t pour into the other eye.)

• Tell victim to roll eyeball(s) around while flushing to wash entire eye.

• DO NOT press or rub the eyes!

• May want to cover eyes with clean dressing & bandages but ask Poison Control or check label on bottle. For example, if chemical is mustard gas (sulfur mustard) you should not cover eyes … but wear shades to protect them.

• Get medical attention immediately!

Things you should NOT do…

• DO NOT try to remove an object that is stuck into the eye!

• DO NOT try to remove their contacts (if any)… let the victim do it!

• DO NOT try to move the eyeball if it comes out of the socket!

Things you SHOULD do…

• Protect your eyes with safety glasses or goggles when playing sports or working with tools or chemicals … and wear shades during the day (to help reduce UV exposure).

• When an eye injury occurs, have an ophthalmologist (an eye physician and surgeon) examine it as soon as possible. You may not be realize how serious an injury is at first.

Add Mossy Oak GameKeeper Kennels QuickDerm pet wound care products to your kits

June 23, 2019

Our friends at VetCare recently shared some great news ~ QuickDerm is now being co-labeled under the Mossy Oak GameKeeper Kennels brand.

Photo: VetCare.usQuickDerm, a product that has been on the market and widely available to veterinarians for 9+ years, provides a moisture-retaining protective barrier that impacts inflammation and promotes rapid healing for ALL animals that have slight to severe wounds and skin conditions.

Per Mossy Oak blog: “… At Mossy Oak, our dogs are a major part of our families,” said Bill Gibson, Director of Gun Dog Operations for Mossy Oak GameKeeper Kennels. “Whether in a duck blind or on the edge of a dove field, our dogs can be found at our side and we make it a point to provide them with the best products to keep them as healthy as possible. ….”

According to Libby Robinson, President of VetCare, “As a native Mississippian, I’m proud and excited to be partnering with Mossy Oak. With QuickDerm, I am confident that I am absolutely offering Mossy Oak and their customers the very best animal wound care product on the market.”

Read the full story on MossyOak.com.

The technology behind QuickDerm was first introduced for human health applications for hard-to-heal wounds, including burns, skin irritations, abrasions and cuts.

We personally used it after I got bit twice on my face by a black widow while sleeping several months ago. Someday we’ll share more about the ordeal but let’s just say it was a rude awakening.

Libby expedited some QuickDerm ointment to us that Monday and, in less than 2 days, one wound was almost completely gone and other healed very rapidly.

A few days later both wounds were totally gone, there is no scarring whatsoever and we now keep both ointment and spray in our kits and cabinets.

Here’s an amazing before and after shot of a canine injury from VetCare…

If you have pets, horses or other critters, visit https://vetcare.us to order Mossy Oak GameKeeper Kennels QuickDerm wound ointment and spray for your preparedness and first aid kits … and again, read more about the VetCare and Mossy Oak partnership here.

Earn referral $$$ with FSC-USFRA D/FW preparedness book project

May 16, 2019

Fedhealth Services Corp is printing 20,000+ preparedness and first aid manuals (with some ads) for the U.S. First Responders Association that will be distributed to Dallas/Fort Worth communities in 2020.

The goal of the project is to educate the public, help lessen the burden on responders, and save people money on everyday items and services with proceeds benefiting USFRA.

Plus people, ad agencies, nonprofits or groups like Volunteer Fire Depts, CERTs, VOADs and others can earn money for helping spread the word.

Basically we are…

  • Offering limited # of ads and prices start as low as 1.25 cents per book after 20% off inaugural rates so only $250 total or less;
  • Books will be divided up and delivered free to all advertisers;
  • FSC will print a few thousand extra books for first responder families;
  • Advertisers get additional benefits (e.g. on USFRA’s Partners page, use USFRA seal, etc.);
  • Advertisers and sponsors are included in drawing for prizes fall 2019;
  • Payment plans now available with 25% down to lock in ads + several discount options;
  • No need to sell or close anyone ~ FSC will work with contacts to negotiate deals, placement, etc.

Again, FSC does all the work and donates a portion of their ad purchases back as directed. And referrals are paid on-going so if businesses do ads in future printings, you’ll receive 20% each time.

Interested in referral commissions/donations?

Share ideas with business contacts and have them mention your name or group on form or when they call.

And realize this is the inaugural print and we plan to spread this to communities across the country and do reprints annually or as requested going forward.

Call 520-907-2153 with any questions and visit http://www.fedhealth.net then let’s collaborate to benefit you, the U.S. First Responders Association, and our nation’s heroes.
