SKU: AI-SA-SCSV

The SAM® Chest Seal is an occlusive dressing designed to treat open chest wounds, a life-threatening situation that could lead to tension pneumothorax.

The SAM® Chest Seal answers the long-standing need for an adhesive strong enough to adhere to skin that is subject to sweat, blood, hair, sand or water. The featured hydrogel adhesive also allows for the ability to reseal, making it ideal for venting.

The SAM® Chest Seal addresses other military needs including a large coverage area, night vision optimisation and the inclusion of a highly and rapidly absorbent 5ʺ × 9ʺ pad to help clean the wound.

The SAM® Chest Seal, The valved version features a one-way valve when its cap is removed. The one-way valve provides for low-resistance flow of air out of the chest cavity while preventing ingress. The valve is also designed to prevent blockage internally. With the cap in place, the dressing is occlusive.

Product Description

    Details

    The SAM® Chest Seal is an occlusive dressing designed for treating open chest wounds (also known as a sucking chest wound), a life-threatening situation that could lead to tension pneumothorax. This is the second leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield.

    Key features of the SAM® Chest Seal include its strong adhesive and its flexible construction which allows conformability over the wound. The adhesive properties have been tested to simulate various environments including adhesion to hair, sweat, blood, in the presence of sand, submersion in water, and during extended wear. The chest seal also adheres under extreme heat and cold.

    Another key advantage of the strong adhesion is its ability to reseal, making it ideal for venting the wound. The SAM® Chest Seal addresses other military needs including a larger dressing area, and by including a highly and rapidly absorbent 5″ x 9″ pad for cleaning the wound area before application.

    This version features a one-way valve, when its cap is removed. The one-way valve provides for low resistance flow of air out of the chest cavity while preventing ingress. The valve is also designed to prevent blockage internally. With the cap in place, the dressing is occlusive. The domed shape of the valve was specially designed to prevent obstruction of the air channels from items such as blankets, clothing, and body armour.

    NIGHT VISION OPTIMIZED

    With its ultimate use in global combat zones, we optimized the SAM® Chest Seal for night vision. Both the packaging and chest seal can be viewed under no light conditions with the use of a night vision device. This allows for easier placement in all light conditions. The SAM® Chest Seal is made in the USA
