WHAT IS THE SAMŽ CHEST SEAL
The SAMŽ Chest Seal is a new occlusive dressing designed for treating open chest wounds (also known as a sucking chest wound), a life-threatening situation that could lead to tension pneumothorax. This is the second leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield.

WHY THE SAMŽ CHEST SEAL
Key features of the SAMŽ Chest Seal include its strong adhesive and its flexible construction which allows conformability over the wound. The adhesive properties have been tested to simulate various environments including adhesion to hair, sweat, blood, in the presence of sand, submersion in water, and during extended wear. The chest seal also adheres under extreme heat and cold.

Another key advantage of the strong adhesion is its ability to reseal, making it ideal for venting the wound. The SAMŽ Chest Seal addresses other military needs including a larger dressing area, and by including a highly and rapidly absorbent 5" x 9" pad for cleaning the wound area before application.

ONE-WAY VALVE OPTION

This version features a one-way valve, when its cap is removed. The one-way valve provides for low resistance flow of air out of the chest cavity while preventing ingress. The valve is also designed to prevent blockage internally. With the cap in place, the dressing is occlusive.

The domed shape of the valve was specially designed to prevent obstruction of the air channels from items such as blankets, clothing, and body armor.

NIGHT VISION OPTIMIZED
With its ultimate use in global combat zones, we optimized the SAMŽ Chest Seal for night vision. Both the packaging and chest seal can be viewed under no light conditions with the use of a night vision device. This allows for easier placement in all light conditions.
