SAM Junctional Tourniquet
SAM Medical Products
The SAM Junctional Tourniquet is a multipurpose device. It can serve as a junctional hemorrhage control device, performing the same function as a traditional tourniquet, or in areas where tourniquets wouldn’t normally be effective. It’s also designed to stabilize pelvic fractures. Its patented buckle provides the clinically correct force, taking the guesswork out of tightening. The unique aspect of the device is its special Target Compression Device (TCD) that fits under the band and is held in place by a military-grade Velcro. Placed at or near the injury site, the TCD is pumped up until the bleeding stops. Two TCDs can also be used to occlude blood flow bilaterally if needed. It’s also been FDA 510(k) cleared.
iTClamp Hemorrhage Control System
Innovative Trauma Care
The iTClamp Hemorrhage Control System is an FDA-approved hemorrhage control device that can be used on the extremities, axilla, inguinal and scalp. The device seals the edges of a wound closed to create a stable clot to mitigate further blood loss until the wound can be surgically repaired. Preclinical trials showed the iTClamp to be superior to wound packing in terms of patient survival, survival time and total blood loss. Applied in seconds with minimal pain to the patient, the iTClamp is ideal for emergency medical personnel.
Blizzard Light is a cost-effective solution for caregivers seeking control when a patient’s core temperature drops, even in the warmest conditions. In addition to trauma scenarios, the Blizzard Light blanket can also serve as an emergency insulating blanket in cold-weather conditions. Blizzard survival hypothermia prevention products from PerSys Medical use a multilayer Reflexcell material, adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense, to create insulation between the environment and patient.
BEAR Stair Chair
Like its predecessor the Original BEAR, the BEAR Stair Chair attaches to a conventional stair chair or rescue chair to become part of it. Once the patient is seated in the stair chair, the nylon mesh, UV- and chemical-resistant fabric wraps around the patient’s abdominal mass in two directions. The lower part of the device comes from the bottom and pulls upward, embracing the thighs and hips of the patient. The top portion of the device feeds through specially designed slide pockets and, once adjusted properly, provides support to the otherwise uncontrollable abdominal mass.

It’s non-biological and non-hazardous, washes from skin and clothing with soap and water and is stable for six months.
FAAC’s MILOResponse interactive response training simulator will change the face of EMS instruction. Instructors can teach tactics and strategies for situational awareness and threat recognition/de-escalation. The simulator teaches communications strategies using real scenes displayed on a large video screen. Video “branches” can be used to alter the course of events at a moment’s notice. Students get hands-on and interact with situations in a real-time controlled setting. Each exercise can also be replayed for debriefing/analysis.
