The Olaes® Modular Bandage is the newest generation of trauma bandages and is advantageous for all levels of care providers. Packed with features such as 3 meters of gauze, a removable occlusive plastic sheet behind the dressing pad, and a pressure bar that can also act as an eye cup, the advanced capabilities of the bandage are tucked neatly away and can be utilized if required or simply ignored. No hooks or clips to confuse or delay care. Velcro® 'Control' strips prevent the elastic roll from accidentally unraveling and secure the bandage throughout the application process.
Designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, no detail has been left out. From the adhesive 'brakes' on the elastic bandage that prevent accidental unrolling, to the zig-zag packed gauze that easily feeds from the bandage, this is the most comprehensive feature packed bandage available without any added confusion. No other bandage offers so much versatility in such a small package. Cover minor wounds, apply truly effective pressure dressings, apply occlusive dressings, and have the ability to pack severe wounds with one bandage.
During high stress situations, such as those involving casualties, stress effects on human performance often affect the fine motor skills of individuals. This makes simple tasks such as bandage application more difficult and time consuming. By creating a bandage where application involves only gross motor skills, no direction changes around hooks or bars, the Olaes® Modular Bandage significantly offers a simpler and more effective solution in bandage options. The elastic simply requires wrapping where the elastic stays flat instead of turning into a cord. Control of the elastic roll is maintained by the 'Control Strips' should the elastic be dropped. You no longer have to open or carry a package of gauze and a separate bandage as both are included in the same package.
A TRUE PRESSURE CUP-
The unique pressure cup generates true focused pressure on top of the wound site where it is required, not circumferential pressure like an ineffective tourniquet. By generating this focused pressure it helps occlude damaged vessels at the wound site where it is needed. It also reduces the amount of manual pressure required to be held, freeing up the care provider to treat other injuries or casualties. The pressure cup can also be removed and used as an eye cup for treatment of ocular injuries as recommended in the new TCCC guidelines.
Elastic wrap with built in 'Control Strips' to prevent inadvertent unraveling.
3 meters of sterile 4 ply gauze.
Plastic occlusive sheet included in dressing pocket Transparent pressure cup that focuses pressure on the wound site and allows for visual inspection of uncontrolled hemorrhage.
Available in both 4" and 6" bandages.
Combat Gauze LE provides the same level of performance as the military version in a compact Z-folded packaging. The primary difference between the two versions is the absence of the X-ray detectable strip in the LE version. Combat Gauze LE is 3” by 4 yards of kaolin impregnated gauze and is recommended as the primary Hemostatic agent for all branches of the US military. Each pack of combat gauze is vacuum sealed in an easy tear pouch for rapid access.
The Russell Chest Seal™ arrives on the market with the test data and real world feedback to back up its performance claims. The hydrogel-based dressing creates an airtight seal even when placed on a sweaty or hairy patient, and patient comfort is greatly increased due to the soft backing on the hydrogel seal.
Another component that makes the Russell Chest Seal™ unique is its valve mechanism. It is constructed from a thin but tough material which makes it very compliant. This allows it to open and close with very small changes in pressure (2O). The valve is large and nearly transparent so the dressing can be positioned accurately over the wound. Four peripheral apertures are large enough (36Fr) to allow blood to escape if necessary without blocking the valve. The four apertures provide substantial redundancy: if up to three of the four holes become obstructed the valve will still remain fully operational.
The Russell Chest Seal™ has a unique low profile and flexibility. It is supplied in a pre-folded form to make it easy to stow into medical packs. In low light conditions, the valve can be 'felt' to be working making it ideal for military operations. At 7 ¾" x 6", the Russell Chest Seal™ is one of the largest chest seals currently available.
