What does a bleed control kit contain?
The kit contains specialist equipment to help stem extreme blood loss before ambulance crews arrive. The pack is lightweight and in a high visibility red. It is housed in a bleed control cabinet so it is available and accessible 24/7.
Remember, a bleed control kit can be used to stem a catastrophic bleed in ANY situation, be that a severe injury at work, a car accident or a car vs pedestrian incident, a heavy fall, or a number of other different situations. Our bleed control cabinets and kits are in what the emergency services would regard as high traffic areas – be that on a main road, near a park, at a train station or in a factory or warehouse.
The kit has been developed by Prometheus and it contains:
Basic instructions for the lay person to have a straightforward understanding of the equipment included and where/how to apply. Remember, you will have a first responder on the end of the phone talking you through using the kit too.
This is designed to control moderate bleeding and should be placed on the bleed itself, not slid on.
This dressing that is very effective, designed to control moderate to very severe haemorrhage
An innovative dressing for emergency treatment of a penetrating chest wound.
The latest evolution of the SOFTT-W tourniquet. The tourniquet cuts off blood supply and should only be used by a trained first aider or if an emergency service responder tells you to use it – as cutting off blood supply may stem an injury but also have other consequences.
These gloves are non-latex and are for personal protection whilst dealing with the injured person.
In an emergency you may need to cut off clothing, so the scissors are there to help.
