Available from Rescue Essentials
SAM Medical Products is a developer and manufacturer of innovative medical products used for emergency, military, and hospital care. Products include the widely used SAM Splint, SAM Pelvic Sling, Soft Shell Splint, CELOX line of hemostatic agents, and Blist-O-Ban blister prevention bandages.
The SAM Splint is constructed from a thin core of aluminum alloy, sandwiched and fixed between two layers of closed-cell foam. SAM Splints are extremely pliable and moldable, and soft enough to cut with ordinary household scissors. But once bent into any of three simple curves they become extremely strong and supportive. This remarkable device can be configured to support or immobilize any fractured or injured limb. One can even use the SAM Splint to create an emergency cervical collar for neck injuries.
CELOX™ is a high performance chitosan-derived hemostatic designed to stop lethal bleeding fast. It is easy to use, extremely effective (clots blood in 30 seconds), and safe (is a CE Marked Class III Medical Device). CELOX comes in five different delivery systems, providing a commitment to aiding the caregiver in treating a variety of difficult and deep wounds. It also does not generate heat and will not burn the casualty or care giver. CELOX works independently of the body’s normal clotting processes. Its clotting ability has been proven to work in hypothermic conditions and in the presence of common anticoagulants such as Coumadin and Heparin.
