OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage
The World's Most Versatile Trauma Bandage
The OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage combines the globally recognized OLAES® Modular Bandage with battle tested HemCon® ChitoGauze® PRO to create the most comprehensive trauma bandage for multiple injury profiles. Both proven life-saving devices are now together in a single, easily accessible package to increase any level of pre-hospital care provider’s treatment capabilities while reducing application times and saving space in your kit.
One of few CoTCCC recommended hemostatic dressings, ChitoGauze® PRO features chitosan as the hemostatic agent, is X-Ray detectable, and is located inside the bandage’s wound pad for rapid access at the point of injury. The included hemostatic gauze is located inside the bandage’s wound pad for rapid access at the point of injury.
The convenience of having both products in a single kit item allows you to have more time to focus on treating your patient rather than locating and opening multiple packages. Its flat packed version easily fits into most standard IFAKs, giving you options to best fit your trauma kit space requirements.
It was designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, first responders here at home, and our end-users so no details are left out, making the OLAES® Hemostatic Bandage the best multi-functional piece of gear inside your kit.
