IFAK Chest seals (Video)

https://youtu.be/VI4nycwiqnY Its more important now than ever that we have the right people with the right gear. Getting ready for an emergency is everyone's personal responsibility with in the boundaries of their capabilities. We have tested multiple chest seals here at CAGmain and I have of course experience while on active duty. The reigning champ so far is the Hyfin vented twin pack. There are other good products but for the cost and durability we use the Hyfin. Available at SHOPCAG $14.99 More on the Hyfins: http://cagmain.com/shop-cag/#!/Hyfin-Vent-Chest-Seal-Twin-Pack/p/50869901/category=13227552 They can also be found in the CAG tier 1 IFAK: http://cagmain.com/shop-cag/#!/CAG-Tier-1-Med-Pack/p/50478734/category=13147503 Here's a link to the new compact version that we haven't tested yet: http://www.narescue.com/portal.aspx?CN=6A6CFEAD5E58 Product specs from the manufacturer: North American Rescue The new HyFin Vent Chest Seal Twin Pack from North American Rescue sets the standard for the treatment of penetrating injuries to the chest. Providing two vented chest seals in one unique package for treatment of both entry/exit or multiple penetrating injuries to the chest. The new HyFin Vent Chest Seal design provides 3-vented channels that prevent airflow into the chest cavity during inspiration while allowing air to escape through the vent channels during exhalation. The 3-vent channels allow blood to escape and also provide a backup fail-safe system, as even if two of the three channels become obstructed, the vent will remain fully operational. Advanced adhesive technology provides superior adhesion in the most adverse conditions, including sweaty or hairy casualties. Packaged in a rugged, easy-to-open foil pouch, the perforated packaging allows rescuers to open only one dressing at a time as needed. Each chest seal also includes a gauze pad to wipe the wound surface prior to application. Each HyFin Vent Chest Seal has a large, Red-Tip ™ pull tab for single-step peel-and-apply application and allows for the burping of the wound if necessary. The clear, transparent backing allows for easy placement over the wound area and conformability to the patient’s chest. Meets or exceeds the current EMS Standard of Care and TCCC & TECC Guidelines for treatment of penetrating injuries to the chest, the new HyFin Vent Chest Seal Twin Pack is the superior prehospital chest seal. Special Features: Patented, new design with 3-channel pressure relief vents Two Chest Seals for the treatment of both entry/exit or multiple penetrating injuries Advanced adhesive technology for a superior seal in the most adverse conditions, including sweaty or hairy casualties 3-vent channels that prevent airflow into the chest cavity during inspiration while allowing air to escape through the vent channels during exhalation Vent channels allow blood to escape and provides a backup fail-safe system as even if two of the three channels become obstructed, the vent will remain fully operational Easy-to-grip, large Red-Tip™ tab for single step, peel-and-apply application that allows for the burping of the wound if necessary Rugged, easy-to-open foil package featuring signature Red-Tip Technology™ tear notches with perforated packaging allowing rescuers to open only one dressing at a time as needed Weights and Dimensions: Packaged: Folded: H7.5 in. x W4.5 in. x D0.25 in.

Austere Medicine: Weekend roll up

The week end November 14th and 15th was a trauma heavy training blow out here at CAGmain! We had 2 full crews of 4 students a day and burned thru multiple high threat TACMED scenarios. [caption id="attachment_2451" align="aligncenter" width="660"]Intro to Austere Medicine Intro to Austere Medicine[/caption] Medical emergencies are statistically the most likely event you will encounter in a disaster. Take a look at the headlines, its easy to see why civilian trauma skills can and will pay off if the right person with the right skills is ready to take action..... Here's a quick breakdown of a few take home points for the students as a whole (both groups):

  • Remember to do the "Meat Check" following pulses
  • PRACTICE taking vital signs. Pulses can be hard to find.......
  • If the supplies are available, dress wounds that have been treated by a tourniquet for infection control.
  • If you have limited medical supplies, focus on untreated limbs before the tourniquet limb.
  • Do the chest exam the same way every time and learn what normal feels like. This way when a patient presents an injury it sets off your red flag during a high stress event.
  • Commit to one role or the other. At this phases of your medical career its important to decide definitively to either perform the medical procedure or to address the threat to you and your patient. Don't try and apply a tourniquet AND shoot bad guy. As we saw this week end, its a recipe for an ineffective treatment.
  • Know your gear. If you're using a new IFAK or someone else's gear, take a second to make sure you know EXACTLY what your using. GEN6 and GEN7 CAT TQs are out there and in some cases apply differently. The 2 seconds you take to confirm the gear prevents the two minutes of redoing a treatment that was applied incorrectly.
  •  Super glue creates a super mess...... Be deliberate when opening your chest seals.
  • The emergency blankets in the CAG Tier 1 IFAKs work. Every student had a chance to be the patient and was exposed to the cold floor, then insulated with the blanket. Use them....
  • Watch the membership videos to rehearse your assessment sequence.

ADMIN NOTES:

  • Make sure students come class with clothes they are willing to get stained and dirty! There will be blood!

The total for this weekend: 8 students and they all earned their Austere Medicine tabs! As you would expect, CAG members show up ready to learn and ready to work. Both classes worked hard and were able to get full training effect and value as civilians learning austere/TCCC medicine. We had variety of students that participated in training this week end. Young and old, hurt and healthy, male and female.

Great job to the students, ya'll kicked ass!
