Description

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.


From the manufacturer

North American Rescue Hyfin Vent Chest Seal

The HyFin Vent Chest Seal Twin Pack from North American Rescue sets the standard for the prevention, management and treatment of an open and/or tension pneumothorax potentially caused by a penetrating chest trauma. Two seals, each individually packaged, are designed to allow the user to apply a seal to both an entry or an exit wound while also giving the option to only apply one and store the other until needed as the situation requires. This innovative design provides 3-vented channels designed to prevent airflow into the chest cavity during inhalation while allowing air to escape through the vent channels during exhalation. The 3-vent channels are designed to allow blood to escape and also provide a backup fail-safe system, as even if two of the three channels become obstructed, the vent is designed to remain fully operational.

Advanced adhesive technology provides superior adhesion as the HyFin Vent Chest Seal Twin Pack is specifically designed to overcome adverse conditions in austere environments where the casualty may be covered in blood, sweat, body hair, or other environmental contaminants when a reliable chest seal is mandatory.

Packaged in a more compact, rugged, easy-to-open twin foil pouch, each chest seal also includes a gauze pad to wipe the wound surface prior to application. The HyFin Vent Chest Seal Twin Pack has a large red pull tab for single-step peel-and-apply application, while the transparent backing facilitates easy placement over the wound area, conforming to the patient’s chest.

Features

  • Patented, new design with 3-channel pressure relief vents
  • Two Chest Seals designed for the treatment of both entry/exit or multiple penetrating injuries

    Great productI bought this for my medical kit and luckily I haven’t needed to use it but glad I have it just in case I need it

  2. Amazon Customer

    Happy to say that I haven’t needed thisI am fortunate to say that I havent experienced an emergency requiring the use of this product, but I feel safer knowing it’s in my first aid kit. I added this (and 3 maxi feminine napkins) for super absorption should an emergency call for it. I pray the need for a chest compression, blood absorbing super-duper absorbing first aid tool never arises.

    i hope i will never have to use thisI hope i will never have to use this product, but if i do I am sure it will perform. I am just a Retired Military man with some more than just basic field medical skills. I do know you need every drop of blood that your body has to keep healthy. I didn’t rat the adhesion or ease of use because haven’t used it yet.

    American made chest seals- 2 pack sealed together back to backThis is a great, life saving product, which is made in America, I’ve never actually used one luckily but the design appears to be the best and I’ve read many experts say that they’re the best. Even with the two chest seals folded together and sealed in plastic they’re extremely thin- you could fit a bunch of these in the average men’s jean front pocket. Hyfin also makes a larger sized chest seal which is packaged individually but they are green and square instead of grey and rectangular. They also make training chest seals which have less sticky adhesive so they can be reused on mannequins to cut costs and not make a mess. I think the thinness of the product is what may have led to the following issue:Right now the highest rated reviews for this product say that they only received one seal- the way these chest seals are manufactured two of them are always connected by that dotted red line, then folded so that they’re back to back, and then sealed in a clear wrap. If you look at the section of this page that says “From the Manufacturer” you’ll see what I mean, it may look like one seal because it’s in one package but flip it over and you’ll see the second one. Both sides are identical because that’s the front of each seal, the backs are hidden because they’re sandwiched together back to back.If someone definitely only received one seal it would be because of a dishonest seller, because they’re not meant to be sold that way- this is a twin pack and the way they’re manufactured it’s not possible that the manufacturer could have only made one chest seal and sent it to a seller.

    Never had to use one.. thank goodness..From opening one they seem very adhesive and seem like would do job.. I have never had to use one, I hope never have to.. seems a good addition to car med kit though..I hope never to have to use one, but better ready with one than not..

    I had to use this product patch a bullet wound but…Here is my take on this product. It worked great to stop the bleeding from a bullet wound to the leg, being in mid panic I didn’t even wipe the blood off of the area before applying it and it still stuck very well. I can only imagine how good it would stick if you did wipe the area off first. However here is the problem.This person lost a ton of blood before I was able get the bandage open and ready… Pealing the protective layer off of the pad is next to impossible if your hands are covered in blood. Even if they aren’t covered in blood it’s extremely hard to pull off. To the point where I literally had to stop and read the directions to make sure I was doing it right.
