More effective than regular petroleum gauze, the Asherman Chest Seal (ACS) is a standard issue for use in emergency situations with open pneumothorax wounds. The ACS is the one item every responder needs for the field treatment of open chest wounds. It features a circular design and a one-way valve, designed to let air and blood escape while preventing either from reentering. The clear pad design allows for a provider to easily monitor the wound. The strong pressure sensitive adhesive will create an effective seal regardless of amount of body hair.
