Illuminate the Way to Safety with the Break Away

Not surprisingly, two of the major hindrances currently affecting how emergency medical professionals do their jobs involve sight, or a lack thereof. Foxfire, a pioneer in the development of energy-efficient, eco-friendly products designed with advanced photoluminescent technology, specializes in assisting first responders to face these obstacles with their illumination products in a number of ways: by improving positional orientation, illuminating search areas, and easily locating personnel. Their new Break Away Safety Vest, an ideal tool for use while performing public safety work, will ensure that you’re highly visible and well-protected, no matter if it’s day or night. Here’s why:

Ease the Burn With New Water-Jel Dressings

It’s no secret that dealing with burn patients presents the most fear to emergency medical professionals. With any burn, regardless of its severity, the importance of adequate analgesia cannot be overstated. Therefore, it is crucial that EMS providers incorporate proper burn-wound care and aggressive-pain management as part of their treatment plans. This is why EMTs and paramedics need to rely on new Water-Jel Burn Dressings: They effectively stop the burning process and burn progression, all while dissipating extreme heat and (most importantly) relieving pain. Here’s why:


Water-Jel Burn Dressings


The Water-Jel Burn Dressings feature a new, crystal-clear, and fragrance-free gel, which incorporates hyaluronic acid along with a paraben-free, broad-spectrum preservative system. Thanks to its transparent gel, you can get an unobstructed assessment of the patient’s burn wounds at any time, which allows you to maintain the viability of zone stasis.

The Water-Jel Burn Dressings are pre-saturated, so no water is needed, and its easy application makes it ideal for dealing with mass-casualty incidents. Patients with hot, damaged clothing can be easily treated thanks to its connective cooling (not evaporative cooling), which also reduces the risk of treatment-induced hypothermia. Additionally, the Water-Jel Burn Dressings are flight-safe and have a five-year shelf life. Take a look at the following sizing options below:

Control hemorrhages with the Tactical Multi Bandage

As an emergency medical professional, you know all too well about the deadly repercussions of exsanguination: Over 40 percent of trauma-related deaths occur in the first 24 hours following an injury due to massive blood loss. First Care Products, a PerSys Medical Company, specializes in the development of innovative products for pre-hospital emergency care that work to quickly and efficiently apply direct pressure on wounds, control bleeding, and forestall shock and death. As a product that is renowned for setting the standard for hemorrhage control, the 8-inch Tactical Multi Bandage is designed to treat a wide variety of large wounds, exposed organs, and keep moisture at the wound site. Here’s why:

PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage



Regarded as an ideal choice for a medical provider who is looking to carry a substantial, multi-use trauma dressing, the PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage can effectively treat and cover large abdominal wounds or traumatic limb amputations. The bandage is housed in a 10-inch by 5.5-inch by 0.5-inch package; these accommodating dimensions allow it to snugly fit into any medic’s bag, right along with any additional gear for hemorrhage control and wound care.

PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage



The PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage’s moisture seal is a non-adherent plastic sheet that seals in and maintains moisture, which provides a cooling effect on wounds. In cases of exposed organs, the moisture prevents the formation of adhesions. If the moisture-retention sheet is not needed, simply tear it away to expose the pad. To use its elastic bandage to treat catastrophic, abdominal-related injuries, simply wrap it around the torso and secure it with its plastic hook.

PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage



Need to perform an amputation in the field? The PerSys First Care Emergency 8-Inch Tactical Multi Bandage’s pad can be centered over a stump right after the procedure is completed; secure it firmly in place by utilizing its elastic wrap. To better control the bleeding that inevitably follows an amputation, just apply the desired amount of pressure by using its plastic pressure-application bar. This unique bar features more pressure than what a normal dressing can offer, which will greatly improve your chances of avoiding exsanguination.
