Instant Cold Pack Faqs FAQs

Why are instant cold packs not reusable?

Instant cold packs are activated by a chemical reaction. It is a single chemical reaction, that will occur once and then will need to be disposed of.

What are instant cold packs used for?

Cardinal Health instant cold packs are used for minor injuries and sprains at schools, sporting events, and other events that require instant pain relief.

Is it better to use ice or cold packs?

The cold pack can get colder than ice can and will not melt. Other than the temperature, both serve the same purpose of reducing swelling, pain, and inflammation. A cold pack is more convenient than ice as it can be packed away and activated in a doctor's office or in the woods.

Does an instant cold pack need to be put in the refrigerator?

Instant cold packs do not need to be put in the refrigerator. They are built to be used at any moment by chemical activation that changes the temperature of the pack.
