EMI, having cultivated 35 years of product development geared toward meeting the complex, ever-changing needs of emergency medical professionals by offering gear wrought with intensity, insight, and impact, has enjoyed tremendous growth, exponentially expanding its product offerings and garnering industry acclaim along the way. A prime example of EMI’s focus on developing products influenced by modern, industry-related trends and enmeshed with the company’s dedication to supporting and serving EMS professionals is the popular Pro Response II Medical Trauma Bag.


EMI Pro Response II Medical Trauma Bag


Fully equipped with everything emergency medical professionals need to handle the most serious medical and trauma emergencies, the EMI Pro Response II Medical Trauma Bag is constructed of durable 1000 Denier nylon. It measures 20 inches long by 12-and-a-half inches wide and stands 9-inches tall. Equipped with a removable-center section with 11 padded compartments and three adjustable sections, the bag is more than capable of accommodating the included supplies: bandages and accessories, airway-management tools, and EMS supplies and equipment, some of which include elastic bandages, eye pads, adhesive tape, alcohol prep pads, a plastic bite stick, and much more.

Transporting all the essential gear once securely stored in the bag is efficient and easy due to a top-carrying handle and an adjustable/detachable rifle-sling strap. The EMI Pro Response II Medical Trauma Bag is also well-ventilated: The top flap has elastic loops for airways. When working on-scene in poorly lit conditions, the bag’s bright-yellow trim on its two large, zippered-end pockets make them clearly visible, should you need to get to their contents quickly. Weighing 8.5 pounds, the bag is available in Orange or Navy colors, and a stylish Star of Life emblem adorns the top flap. 

Additionally, a Pro Response Complete Refill Kit is available separately, which includes all the supplies that accompany the EMI Pro Response II Medical Trauma Bag, save for a blood pressure cuff and stethoscope, tourniquet, instrument pack, Lifesaver Plus Seat Belt Cutter, and bag.

The CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System Is a Lightweight, Quick, and Secure Way to Safely and Comfortably Secure a Patient

Highly regarded as an industry-leading designer, manufacturer, and worldwide distributor of rescue and work-at-height equipment, CMC Rescue is also well-known as a globally respected, emergency-response educator. They have fully embraced a mindset geared toward meeting the needs of their customers, while simultaneously exceeding their expectations through innovative, problem-solving techniques.


CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System


A longstanding, patient-care-related issue involved the loss of critical, patient-packaging time due to the accepted method of securing a patient in a litter: the use of improvised internal and external lashings using a one-inch tubular web. In many cases, the finished lashing was either too tight or too loose. After much testing of prototypes in rescue-school classes, CMC developed their Patient Tie-In System as viable solution. Here’s how it works:

The CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System is a lightweight, quick, and secure way to meet all of the patient’s comfort-based requirements when on-scene. Emergency medical professionals need only to adjust the litter so that it is in a heads-up position so that its durable pelvic harness can securely support the patient’s weight.


CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System


The CMC Rescue Patient Tie-In System can easily accommodate either a one-piece or a two-piece litter. It can be used with the pelvic harness system or for a patient on a backboard. Additionally, the system is conveniently color-coded, which allows it to be easily managed and organized.
