First Care Products
The First Care Emergency Bandage has become an integral component of emergency hemorrhage control and wound treatment in pre-hospital situations. Its unique design, ease of use and broad range of sizes and styles makes it ideal for treating any bleeding wound. All First Care products are manufactured to the strictest international standards and are protected by international patents.
The patented pressure applicator applies about 15 kg pressure on the wound and the bandage can be attached by one hand. The vacuum package takes the minimum amount of space before its usage.
In these bandages there are many innovations that are crucial in emergency situations, for example, Stop & Go mechanism to prevent unintentional unraveling of the wrapping leader, built-in closure bar and non-adherent pad. These innovations make it easier, faster and safer to get the bleeding stopped.
