HyFin® Vent Chest Seal (Individual) by North American Rescue (NSN: 6510-01-624-0840)
The HyFin® Vent Chest Seal from North American Rescue is designed for the management and treatment of an open and/or tension pneumothorax potentially caused by a penetrating chest trauma. It 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 superior adhesion as the HyFin® Vent Chest Seal is specifically formulated to overcome adverse conditions in which the patient may be covered in blood, sweat, body hair, or other environmental contaminants. 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.
North American Rescue packages each chest seal using its signature Red Tip Technology® red tear notches to ensure high quality performance.
