The Lightning X Vented Chest Seal is an occlusive dressing designed to treat open chest wounds. Injuries to the chest that result in open chest wounds may lead to tension pneumothorax, the second leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield.
Chest Seal is made with a medical grade hydrogel adhesive strong enough to adhere to skin that is exposed to blood, sweat, hair, sand or water.
With the entire package measuring only 6″ x 4″, it’s configured to fit in IFAKs and small personal trauma kits. The 4 vent design maximizes venting and ensures proper chest seal function in the event of an obstruction.
Dimensions: 6″ x 6″. The LX-CSV is a great value minded alternative to higher priced chest seals such as Hyfin by North American Rescue, Halo, SAM and Fox.
