Designed to quickly package traumatic amputations, burns and large pattern wounds with minimal effort.
The Prometheus Blast Bandage allows you to quickly package traumatic amputations, burns and large pattern wounds with minimal effort. It provides a 50cm x 50cm treatment area, but packs to 10cm x 10cm.
The large non-adherent wound pad can be easily wrapped around limbs and secured with the attached elastic wrap. It provides a large sterile protective covering for shrapnel wounds or burns. The emergency trauma bandage also offers a removable occlusive layer that will cover a 48cm x 48cm area or can be used to cover abdominal contents minimising the loss of heat and moisture.
Velcro Control strips prevent the elastic roll from accidentally unravelling and secure the bandage throughout the application process. By providing multiple points of adhesion, the brakes prevent slippage of the elastic during the wrapping process. This creates a more secure, effective bandage and decreases the chance of the wound being exposed during movement.

Advantages, features & benefits
- A large non-adherent wound pad and an integral elastic bandage - for the quick and simple achievement of effective haemostatic stump pressure following traumatic amputation.
- Quick and simple to use
- Large, removable occlusive dressing - multi-purpose, e.g. to cover eviscerated bowel; as a robust burns dressing; as an occlusive dressing for multi-penetrating chest wounds.
- Brakes - to help prevent accidental unrolling of the elastic wrap during application, especially helpful during the dressing of amputations. These multiple points of adhesion prevent slippage of the elastic during the wrapping process, making the bandaging process much easier to achieve, with a more secure end-result.
