The MARCH™ Dart™ gives providers at any skill level the confidence and capability to perform reliable chest decompression and improve outcomes for casualties with a tension pneumothorax, the third leading cause of preventable traumatic death.1

The Dart™ is a sterile, 14 gauge x 3.25” needle with a uniformed, thick walled catheter. The design minimizes risk of catheter collapse in the intercostal space.  The sure-grip hub ensures stability in difficult environments. The rugged case was designed for easy, one-handed opening and doubles as a sharps container for patient and practitioner safety.

The Dart’s™ six-year shelf life lowers lifecycle costs when compared to most chest decompression needles.
