The Sentinel® Chest Seal is a device designed to seal an open chest wound and minimize the risk of developing a tension pneumothorax, a leading cause of preventable battlefield death.1 This seal maintains static placement for spontaneous relief of tension pneumothorax and ensures effective channeling for the release of blood and air.

The Sentinel Chest Seal patented design minimizes vent occlusion while permitting simultaneous release of blood and air. The 360° layer of Sentinel 10x™ adhesive sticks in place and remains fully adhered to the casualty in all environments while the transparent design allows a clear view of the wound. Together, these features reduce the need to apply multiple seals and lower the risk of tension pneumothorax, a leading cause of preventable battlefield death.1
