The Sentinel® Chest Trauma Kit is a comprehensive set of products that deliver an enhanced level of user confidence and improve casualty outcomes when faced with symptoms of tension pneumothorax, the third leading cause of preventable traumatic death.1

For open chest wounds, the Sentinel® Chest Seal maintains static placement and ensures effective channeling for the simultaneous release of blood and air. The transparent material provides a clear view of the wound and the design minimizes vent occlusion, reducing the need to apply multiple seals and lowering the risk of tension pneumothorax.

When a casualty requires chest decompression, responders must be confident that they have a reliable needle accurately placed into the second intercostal space at the midclavicular line. The Dart needle and the Dart Target give responders at any skill level the confidence and capability to perform accurate chest decompression and have a direct impact on casualty outcomes.
