APLS Thermal Guard Sheath is designed to work in concert with standard military litters and improves patient warmth during transient transport. A fleece-lined panel protects the patient against hypothermia while a treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture.
Symmetric, fleece-lined hood openings at each end of the litter allow the patient to be placed in the APLS Thermal Guard Sheath from either side.
The highly absorbent core contains blood and bodily fluids, thus reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
APLS Thermal Guard Sheath can be used independently, on top of, or as an envelope around a structured litter.
Each APLS pad includes eight reinforced handles that allow for easy carrying and transport.
