Revision on 2012.05.29: since 0 of 6 people found my review unhelpful, I'll try to do better. Here goes:
First, let me state that I have not opened the package so as to not contaminate it, nor have I ever used one of these.
This kit consists of a 5 1/2 " round piece if latex with an adhesive coated surface on one side.
There is a piece of gauze included.
In the center is the piece that goes outside the wound wound, which avoids air being drawn into a chest wound, but allows air to escape, at least that's what I understand from reading about its use on the internet. This keeps the lung expanded.
It appears to be a simple, but effective device.
Alternatives I read of are the Bolin Chest seal (more expensive), or making your own from items in your first aid kit or what is available.
You can search the internet for explanations on how to use it.
If you still find this review wanting, please add a comment with a constructive suggestion. Thanks.
It was delivered fast, and I hope we never need to use it!
