- North American Rescue Hyfin Chest Seal
The HyFin Chest Seal is a self-adhesive occlusive dressing designed for the treatment and management of an open chest wound caused by a penetrating trauma, such as a gunshot or stab wound.
A penetrating chest wound creates an opening in the chest wall through which air can enter the chest cavity; commonly referred to as an "open pneumothorax." The HyFin Chest Seal utilizes an enhanced adhesive gel formulation designed to create a superior seal even in extreme conditions to treat and manage an open pneumothorax while preventing the development of a tension pneumothorax, which is one of the top three leading causes of preventable deaths on the battlefield. The HyFin Chest Seal is specifically designed to overcome adverse conditions in austere environments where the casualty may be covered in blood, sweat, body hair, or other environmental contaminants when a reliable chest seal is mandatory.
Featuring a large 6 x 6 in. size, the transparent design allows for accurate placement directly over the wound, easily conforming to the casualty's chest. A large, easily-visible red elliptical tab facilitating single step peel-and-adhere application is incorporated into the HyFin's design. Made in America and 100% latex free, each chest seal is packaged using its signature Red Tip Technology red tear notches in a rugged, easy-to-open, foil pouch to ensure high quality performance.
