The Asherman Chest Seal is an innovative sterile dressing for the emergency management of an open pneumothorax and/or prevention of a tension pneumothorax.
The chest seal allows paramedics and first response personnel to eliminate unwanted air in the pleural cavity and prevent it from re-entering, dramatically improving a patient’s chance of survival.
Asherman Chest Seal is also useful in needle thoracentesis where the catheter is left in the chest with the valve placed over it and the hub of the catheter in the mouth of the valve. This facilitates a one-way valve for the catheter.
Features and Benefits:
Circular design - aids conformability and covers the wound
Pressure sensitive adhesive - ensures quick and efficient application
No invasive procedure - less risk to patient
One way valve - eliminates the intake of outside air
Incorporates a sterile dressing - cleans and dries the wound area
