Save Time and Lives with Water-Jel Fire Blankets

Burn wounds and injuries are usually devastating, inflicting long-term consequences on their victims. As an emergency medical professional, you need to be adequately prepared to effectively deal with burn-related emergencies, as every second becomes critical to saving lives.

As a leading authority on all types of burns, burn treatment, and household-burn safety, Water-Jel Technologies offers dressings and blankets that are ideal for first-aid burn treatment in a pre-hospital setting. The Water-Jel Fire Blanket is a vital tool to have in areas where high-heat flames, arc flashes, hot liquids, or chemicals pose serious burn injury-related risks. Here’s why:

Utilized by both emergency medical professionals as well as firefighters worldwide, the Water-Jel Fire Blanket’s gel is crystal-clear and fragrance-free, containing a 96% water-in-a-gel form to allow convective cooling – as opposed to evaporative cooling – which minimizes the risk of treatment-induced hypothermia. It is non-adherent, featuring hyaluronic acid and a paraben-free, broad-spectrum preservative system.

Water-Jel Fire Blanket

Additionally, an improved canister design allows the blanket to be easily and quickly removed for use, which means you can treat burn victims quicker and save more lives.

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:
