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:
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.
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.
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.
