The first minutes following a traumatic injury are crucial in saving a life. Uncontrolled bleeding can result in death within minutes–even before emergency medical services or other emergency responders can arrive. The North American Rescue (NAR) Public Access Bleeding Control Station provides bystanders and initial first responders with quick and easy access to essential medical equipment to stop life-threatening bleeding in public buildings and populated public areas. Designed to be mounted on a wall at a designated location or to be co-located with Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs), the NAR Public Access Bleeding Control Station provides publically accessible medical supplies to control major bleeding.
Each NAR Public Access Bleeding Control Station contains:
One (1) Public Access Bleeding Control Pack, which includes eight (8) Individual Bleeding Control Kits with step-by-step pictorial instructions on how to use the provided medical equipment that is contained inside of an easy-to-open carrying case
One (1) NAR QuikLitter™ used for moving injured casualties
Stored in a durable, clear polycarbonate cabinet that is easily accessible with highly visible “Stop the Bleed” placards for fast identification.
The rugged storage case provides both physical and environmental protection. It also contains an eyelet that allows for a secondary safety seal to easily identify if the station has been opened or tampered with. The clear design of the storage case allows visibility at any angle and the external mounting tabs enable the case to be easily installed on any wall. The internal design includes a wire shelf that supports the Public Access Bleeding Control Pack and the exterior has rounded corners to help prevent injury if bumped into and comes complete with the mounting hardware.
The Basic version of the NAR Public Access Bleeding Control Pack provides 8 complete kits containing life saving bleeding control equipment such as tourniquets, pressure dressings and gauze bandages and puts them into the hands of the public to help control bleeding and save lives. It also includes the NAR QuikLitter™ for moving injured casualties.
Includes all equipment found in the Basic Public Access Bleeding Control Pack with each of the 8 complete kits also containing the added capability to treat penetrating chest wounds with the HyFin® Vent Compact Chest Seal Twin Pack (for entrance and exit wounds). It also includes the NAR QuikLitter™ for moving injured casualties.
