North American Rescue - Hyfin Vent Chest Seal

SKU: FRNR-10-0037
From $66.10 each INC GST

The HyFin® Vent Chest Seal from North American Rescue is used for prevention, management and treatment of an open and/or tension pneumothorax potentially caused by a penetrating chest trauma.

This innovative device provides 3-vented channels that are designed to prevent airflow into the chest cavity during inhalation while allowing air to escape through the vent channels during exhalation.

The 3-vent channels are designed to allow blood to escape and also provide a backup fail-safe system, as even if two of the three channels become obstructed, the vent is designed to remain fully operational.

Advanced hydrogel technology provides excellent adhesion as the HyFin® Vent Chest Seal is specifically formulated to overcome adverse conditions in austere environments where the casualty may be covered in blood, sweat, body hair, or other environmental contaminants when a reliable chest seal is mandatory.

Packaged in a compact, rugged, easy-to-open foil pouch, each chest seal also includes a gauze pad to wipe the wound surface prior to application.

The HyFin® Vent Chest Seal has a large red pull tab for single-step peel-and-apply application, while the transparent backing facilitates easy placement over the wound area, conforming to the patient’s chest.
