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® 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.
