The Tactical First Response (TFR) Kit - Advanced from Rescue Essentials is designed to provide personnel with a compact and durable kit to treat bleeding from traumatic injuries. This kit is vacuum packaged for small cubic displacement. It is designed to fit into a BDU pocket, vest pouch or individual bag. This permits personnel to carry a compact bleeding control kit on their person, where it is needed most. The vacuum sealed package is rugged, durable and easy to open. The TFR-A includes the hemostatic agent CeloxTM which, in conjunction with direct pressure, can control even severe arterial bleeding.
The key difference between the Basic and Advanced kits lies in the inclusion of the CELOX hemostatic agent in the Advanced and the replacement of the petrolatum gauze dressing as an improvised chest seal with the Hyfin Chest Seal from North American Rescue. The advanced kit contains a higher quality and more versatile 4" Trauma Dressing and also includes a 5.5" Trauma Shears.
Black Talon Gloves are the most durable nitrile glove on the market today. They offer both maximum protection and unsurpassed tactile sensitivity, and come in tactical black. A Laerdal Face Shield is compact, easy to use, and provides user protection during CPR. This complete wound kit includes a 5 x 9 Trauma Pad to be used as a first application for direct pressure to control hemorrhaging. One package of CELOX 35gm Hemostatic Agent, which is a Chitosan based blood clotting agent, is the most advanced product on the market. A 4" Emergency Trauma Dressing allows for increased compression when applied. When nothing else will work pull out the SWAT-T Tourniquet. This stretchable tourniquet can be applied with one hand and, can also function as a pressure wrap. A Hyfin Chest Seal is the final premium life saving component. Other useful items include Combat Medic Reinforcement Tape and 5.5" Trauma Shear.
