A typical day at a clinic or hospital: A nurse answers the phone and a frightened woman asks "Is my bleeding normal"? The nurse asks "How much are you bleeding"?
Patient response: HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW? I DON'T KNOW!
RedSpot has the answer that many women need to know. Is their vaginal bleeding normal or abnormal. RedSpot offers women and their nurses' the ability to match their bleeding to a visual display of sanitary pads loaded with 1 ml to 35 mls of simulated blood. (pad images are uploaded to nurses or can be viewed privately)
It gives women the knowledge to quantify bleeding on their pad in order to improve their communication with healthcare providers. This service is expected to decrease unnecessary clinic or hospital visits, medical costs and offer peace of mind to women and their families.
