Simply remove from the pack and apply in any orientation. 512 vents to release air and prevent the development of tension pneumothorax. Smart geometric pattern design of 24 adhesive islands preventing creases from affecting vent performance.
Same hydrogel base technology as Foxseal occlusive dressing, supplied to NATO military forces.
Easy grip re-seal tab, allows to peel the dressing off, apply decompression and re-seal when ready, maintaining strong adhesion.
Foxseal Vented performed at a steady low pressure in-vitro (Between 0.1 and 0.5mm Hg), even when fully covered with heavy clothing. Minimising the risk of developing tension pneumothorax (circa 10 mm Hg).
Adhesion strength consistently higher than the specification standard (4 N), across all dressings, tested in-vitro.
All dressings tested in-vitro displayed high adhesion strength after being carried in an IFAK flat, rolled and folded over an 8-week period, in -24oC and 55oC (-11.2oF and 131oF). Consistently higher than the specification standard (4 N).
