A fast, effective tool for all kinds of serious traumas and injuries involving arterial bleeding.
The H-Bandage is the latest in Universal Severe Trauma Dressings. An upgrade to H&H patented combat dressing Cinch Tight, the H-Bandage gives medics and field personnel both an emergency dressing and a hemostat for arterial bleeding and hemorrhaging in limbs. The H-Bandage’s unique design allows for one-handed use under any condition. Designed for First Responders, Military, and Law Enforcement, the H-Bandage provides a fast, effective tool for all kinds of serious traumas and injuries involving arterial bleeding.
The unique design of the H-Bandage, with its 8″x10″ ABD pad and the unique 5 foot elastic wrap designed for both strength and flexibility along with the H-shaped cinch sewn into the bandage, allows it to satisfy multiple field needs. The H-shaped cinch allows for direct pressure to be applied directly on top of a wound, increasing compression and reducing blood loss.
The H-Bandage can be used easily and effectively as a field compression dressing and as a sling with improved stability, compression, and ease of use. Because of the strength of the proprietary elastic strap, the H-Bandage can also be deployed as a hasty tourniquet. The H-Bandage has been clinically tested to stop arterial bleeding, making it a complete combat dressing whose multiple functionality makes it a truly comprehensive emergency trauma system.
H-Bandage comes in two options and two different folds:
creates a rounder and tighter package.
- Individual – 8"x10" Regular fold “H” bandage, single
- 1 Case – 8"x10" Regular fold “H” bandage, 100 per case
creates a thinner but wider package.
All H&H H-Bandages come in a sterile, vacuum-sealed 4 mil barrier bag, folded to create a small tight package.
The H&H H-Bandage is standard issue in the following U.S. military kits:
- Individual – 8"x10" Flat fold “H” bandage, single
- 1 Case – 8"x10" Flat fold “H” bandage, 100 per case
- MES TACT CBT MED CARE (UAC 269A)
- MRS TACT COMBAT CARE (UAC 326A)
H&H BANDAGE TEST RESULTS
Clinical tests for arterial bleeding have indicated that the H-Bandage is successful in acting as a hemostat for arterial bleeding in limbs. The testing summary stated:
“The result of this experiment makes it reasonable to suggest that the H-Bandage is a suitable design to enable it to be used as an effective packed-focal pressure dressing for the control of non-amputation peripheral artery limb hemorrhage in soldiers on the battlefield.”
