For Venting Both Blood and Air, Sentinel Sticks With You

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
