From the producer
Proven technology from the company that supplies you the Celox™ range. FoxSeal has been tested in extreme conditions, comes with two dressings in a compact package, which is crease free and designed for IFAK carry and used for treating potentially lethal open chest wounds. Foxseal™ is designed for simple, consistent performance in the field as a tool in prevention and treatment of pneumothorax.
The advanced adhesive works on wet or hairy skin. Foxseal™ is a compact size to fit neatly in Individual First Aid Kits, so that leaks from creased dressings that are stored folded are no longer an issue. Two seals per pack allow entry and exit wounds to be treated and the design is valve-free. The chest can be vented with the easily-gripped tab and the adhesive re-seals. Foxseal™ provides dependable adhesion in the most challenging situations and extreme conditions.

• Injuries up to 15cm maximum length.
•Adhesion performance maintained at -18° and +55°C.

Instructions for use
- Wipe out dirt / fluid from skin around wound.
- Grip tab and peel to remove one FoxSeal from clear liner. This exposes adhesive side.
- Place dressing centered on the wound, adhesive side down.
Preferably do this while patient exhales as air pressure in the pleural cavity should be less than during inhalation.
- Firmly press dressing to skin around wound to seal.
- If another wound is present, repeat steps 1-4 with second seal.
- Use tab to vent and re-seal, if required.
