SECURELY SEALED – IMMUNE TO THE ELEMENTS
SAM® Chest Seal is engineered to seal and reseal open chest wounds under the majority of circumstances. After simple and quick application, SAM® Chest Seal sticks relentlessly – in extreme heat or cold, and in the presence of all elements. Meets CoTCCC-preferred features.
SAM® Chest Seal’s rigid, raised-dome valve ensures one-way airflow from the chest cavity, no matter the pressure applied. Large side vents minimize internal obstruction from blood clots or soft tissue. Whether in transport or in the presence of heavy body armor, the TRUFLOW™ Valve will continue to vent.
SUPERIOR HYDROGEL ADHESIVE
Medical professionals have long needed an adhesive strong enough to seal a wound covered in sweat, blood, hair, sand, water, and more. The superior Hydrogel adhesive not only adheres under these conditions, but even after removed for venting, SAM® Chest Seal will reseal the wound.
1. OVAL SEAL
Larger than other occlusive dressings, its oval shape maximizes the surface area of the seal, and its transparency, elasticity and conformability ensure effective adhesion.
2. DUAL APPLICATION TABS
Tabs facilitate the proper placement and removal of adhesive (dressing), with the ability to vent and reseal.
3. FORTIFIED GEL
Strong Hydrogel adheres in the presence of blood, hair, sweat and sand, or when submersed in water.
4. TRUFLOW™ VALVE
Reinforced dome-shaped, one-way valve allows airflow from the chest cavity no matter the patient’s position, preventing ingress and reducing internal obstruction from blood, clots or soft tissue.
5. THIN EDGE LAYER
The thin edge layer resists lifting or peeling, maintaining a formidable seal.
6. NIGHT VISION OPTIMIZED
Optimized for night vision, the packaging, pouch, dressing backing, and tabs provide ideal contrast for visibility in normal light, low light, and night conditions (using a night vision device).
7. TRUFLOW™ VALVE WITH CAP
Reinforced dome-shaped, one-way valve allows airflow from the chest cavity no matter the patient’s position, preventing ingress and reducing internal obstruction from blood, clots or soft tissue. Remove cap to activate TRUFLOW™ Valve.
