The H-Bandage™ Compression Dressing is the latest in Universal Severe Trauma Dressings. An upgrade to Safeguard Medical's patented combat dressing Cinch Tight, the H-Bandage gives medics and field personnel both an emergency dressing and a hemostat for arterial bleeding and hemorrhaging in limbs. The H-Bandage™ Compression Dressing’s unique design allows for one-handed use under any condition. Designed for First Responders, Military, and Law Enforcement, the H-Bandage™ provides a fast, effective tool for all kinds of serious traumas and injuries involving arterial bleeding.
The unique design of the H-Bandage™ Compression Dressing, with its 8″ thick ABD pad and the unique 5-foot elastic wrap designed for both strength and flexibility along with the H-shaped cinch sewn into the bandage, allows it to satisfy multiple field needs. The H-shaped cinch allows for direct pressure to be applied directly on top of a wound, increasing compression and reducing blood loss.
H-Bandage Compression Dressing TEST RESULTS
Clinical tests for arterial bleeding have indicated that the H-Bandage™ is successful in acting as a hemostat for arterial bleeding in limbs. The testing summary stated:
“The result of this experiment makes it reasonable to suggest that the H-Bandage™ is a suitable design to enable it to be used as an effective packed-focal pressure dressing for the control of non-amputation peripheral artery limb hemorrhage in soldiers on the battlefield.”
Elastic wrap not known to be made with natural rubber latex.
