DEMRON IS CERTIFIED AGAINST THE CORONAVIRUS RST Demron Apparel is Certified Against the Coronavirus Radiation Shield Technologies offers patented Demron apparel providing healthcare workers and first responders unique anti-Coronavirus protection MIAMI, FL. As concern over spread of the Coronavirus in the U.S. and abroad continues to rise, Radiation Shield Technologies is reporting a growing domestic and international interest in its patented line of Demron and Demron Ice personal-protection apparel. The gear, which is ASTM-certified to provide anti-viral protection from Coronavirus, is considered to provide the highest level of protection available today. For years, the lightweight Demron gear has been deployed worldwide by every branch of the U.S. military, U.S. CST teams, the FDNY, IAEC, DSTA, NASA, and many international first responder and military teams. "The standard gear worn by healthcare workers and first responders is ineffective at preventing transmission of the Coronavirus," said Ronald DeMeo, M.D., CEO of RST, the surgeon who developed the technology. "Demron provides the highest protection that cannot be found anywhere else. With this deadly virus posing increased risk to those caring for the afflicted as well as the general public, it is critical for healthcare workers and first responders to wear the latest gear offering the highest protection." Dr. DeMeo received global news attention in 2011 when he recognized that emergency responders in Japan lacked proper gear while working to contain the country's worst nuclear crisis since 1945. His Miami-based company then donated Demron full-body nuclear radiation protection suits to protect power plant workers and rescue teams. Similarly, Dr. DeMeo is now issuing a call-to-action to help ensure American healthcare workers and first responders utilize the appropriate gear to minimize Coronavirus contamination risk. In addition to face masks which provide the highest level of protection against disease transmission, the Demron suits have patented thermal conductive capabilities which enable health-care workers suits to be externally monitored for the onset of fever, one of the first signs of the disease. Additionally, Coronavirus-infected patients can also be monitored and externally cooled when infection transportation chambers are lined with the Demron fabric. Ongoing testing in this area is being carried out by Dipl. Eng. Pavel Castulik, Ph.D., at the Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment, Masaryk University, Czech Republic. Demron, manufactured solely by RST, is the world's first and only CBRN fabric that provides chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear protection, while also enabling external temperature monitoring. For more than 20 years, RST has pioneered high-performance, multi-hazard fabrics employing Demron for military, firefighters, law enforcement and medical personnel. Demron combines the metallic properties of gamma radiation reduction, trauma reduction and thermal conductivity with advanced nano polymer technology, and is uniquely capable of providing true anti-nuclear protection and heat stress reduction without compromising chemical or biological hazard protection. Headquartered in Miami, RST is an ISO 9001 & 13485 manufacturer that has received numerous awards, and is currently pending NFPA 2007 Class 2 certification for chemical resistance. Whether used in a warm or hot zone, Demron gear provides the ultimate in universal protection against all CBRN hazards as well as Coronavirus. Demron's product line currently includes full body suits, blankets, and tents.

The pills have been available free of charge at select pharmacies, but will now be sent by mail due to increased safety standards.How Potassium Iodide (KI) Works - KI is a pill or liquid that can be used in radiation emergencies that involve radioactive iodine. KI contains non-radioactive iodine. Non-radioactive iodine helps prevent radioactive iodine from being absorbed by the thyroid gland.Workplace Radiation Incidents - Workplaces like health care facilities research institutions, and industrial operations may use radiation sources.Improvised Nuclear Device - An Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) is a type of nuclear weapon. When an IND explodes, it gives of four types of energy: a blast wave, intense light, heat, and radiation. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, at the end of the World War II is an example of an IND.Nuclear Power Plant Emergency - During an emergency at a nuclear power plant, radioactive material could be released into the environment and contaminate air, soil, surfaces, food and water.Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission: Canadian Potassium iodide (KI) Pill Working Group - In 2019, the CNSC established a Potassium Iodide (KI) Pill Working Group and Advisory Committee to provide clarity on the existing plans and associated responsible authorities to distribute KI pills in the Ingestion Planning Zone (IPZ), in the event of an emergency at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station.Patient Information Sheet for RadBlock - Take RadBlock or give to children only when public health officials advise you. In a radiation emergency, radioactive iodine could be released into the air. RadBlock protects the thyroid gland from radioactive iodine. Children up to 18 years of age are most at risk. It is important that you follow the instructions carefully when administering RadBlock to children.What is a dirty bomb? - A dirty bomb is a mix of explosives, such as dynamite, and radioactive powder or pellets. It is also known as a radiological dispersal device (RDD).Dirty Bomb or Radiological Dispersal Device -The main danger from a dirty bomb comes from the explosion, not the radiation. The explosion can cause serious injuries and property damage.Radiation Emergencies and Pregnancy - After a radiation emergency, pregnant women should follow instructions from emergency officials and seek medical attention as soon as emergency officials say it is safe to do so.KI CanadaTel: 416-857-4464 | Email:

Frequently Asked Questions About Potassium Iodide

In Canada, Health Canada, or in the United States, the FDA, is the Federal agency responsible for decisions about appropriate thresholds and dosages for use of potassium iodide:

What is potassium iodide?

Potassium iodide is a salt, similar to table salt.  Its chemical symbol is KI.  It is routinely added to table salt to make it 'iodized'. Potassium iodide,if taken in time and at the appropriate dosage, blocks the thyroid gland's uptake of radioactive iodine and thus could reduce the risk of thyroid cancers and other diseases that might otherwise be caused by exposure to radioactive iodine that could be dispersed by a terrorist activity or nuclear accident.

What is the role of potassium iodide in radiological emergency preparedness?

The purpose of radiological emergency preparedness is to protect people from the effects of radiation exposure after a dirty bomb or accident at a nuclear power plant.  Evacuation is the most effective protective measure in the event of a radiological emergency because it protects the whole body (including the thyroid gland and other organs) from all radionuclides and all exposure pathways.  However, in situations when evacuation is not feasible and in-place sheltering is substituted as an effective protective action, administering potassium iodide is a reasonable, prudent, and inexpensive supplement to evacuation and sheltering.

Potassium iodide is a special kind of protective measure in that it offers very specialized protection.  Potassium iodide protects the thyroid gland against internal uptake of radioiodines that may be released in the unlikely event of nuclear exposure.

What is the benefit of taking potassium iodide during a radiological accident?

When potassium iodide is ingested, it is taken up by the thyroid gland.  In the proper dosage, and taken at the appropriate time, it will effectively saturate the thyroid gland in such a way that inhaled or ingested radioactive iodines will not be accumulated in the thyroid gland.  The risk of thyroid effects is reduced.  Such thyroid effects resulting from radioiodine uptakes due to inhalation or ingestion, or both, could result in acute, chronic, and delayed effects.  Acute effects from high doses include thyroiditis, while chronic and delayed effects include hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer.

Can individual members of the public obtain potassium iodide?

Health Canada has approved potassium iodide as an over-the-counter medication.  As with any medication, individuals should check with their doctor or pharmacist before using it.

What are the recommended dosages of potassium iodide?

Please see chart shown above.
