The Sentinel Chest Seal is a dual vent chest dressing with strong adhesive properties used for the treatment of open chest wounds. The revolutionary design allows simultaneous release of both blood and air. The Sentinel has an internal collection area for blood to collect & drain through the lower vent "while air is released through the "upper vent". This allows the strong adhesive to remain fully adhered to the casualty.
The design of the seal allows it to be folded for easy storage without the risk of damaging a valve. This seal provides an excellent balance of capability and size while still offering the ability to vent.
