"H" Compression Bandage
The H Bandage is a Universal Severe Trauma Dressing (a full upgrade to the present patented combat dressing Cinch Tight). The H Bandage was developed to offer the user an emergency dressing that would not only serve as an emergency dressing but also as a hemostat for arterial bleeding and hemorrhaging in limbs, deployed one-handed for use under any condition. The bandage is a sterile, non-adherent dressing for severe trauma wounds. The bandage consists of an 8” x 10” ABD pad fastened to a 4” x 5.2 yard elastic wrap (stretches to 16 feet). The ends of the wrap have Velcro(c) fasteners and with the plastic “H” on top of the pad gives the added compression strength and stability needed for large wounds. When applied, the H Bandage, combined with Primed Compressed Gauze, places heavy pressure over and into the wounded area. Initial clinical test results have proven that the H Bandage will act as a hemostat for arterial bleeding in limbs, a critical component in the dressing’s functionality. The result is that H and H is able to offer the corpsman, medic, first responder, and the individual an all-in-one emergency and combat bandage for all traumas.
