Foxseal Chest Seal is a pioneering occlusive dressing for the treatment of open chest wounds as a tool in prevention of pneumothorax.
- Compact, fits IFAK without folding, to avoid creases.
- Strong adhesion in extreme conditions.
- Two per pack for ballistic wounds.
- Simple no-valve design.
- Vent with large, easy to operate tab
Other dressing options are often folded when carried in kits, leading to a permanent crease which can prevent a true seal. Foxseal is a compact size to fit neatly into pouches, to avoid creasing. Two seals per pack allow entry and exit wounds to be treated. Patient monitoring is vital in these injury types and the design is a simple valve-free option, for simple use. The chest can be vented with the easily-gripped tab and the adhesive re-seals.
