Chest Seal Application: Saving Lives with Beacon Medical’s Advanced Solutions
As a leading name in emergency medical care, Beacon Medical is dedicated to providing innovative solutions to save lives. One such solution is our advanced chest seal application system, which is crucial for treating open chest wounds in emergency situations. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore how Beacon Medical’s chest seal application techniques set us apart from the competition.
Why is Chest Seal Application Important?
Chest seal application is vital for the treatment of open chest wounds, commonly known as sucking chest wounds. These injuries can lead to a potentially life-threatening condition called tension pneumothorax, where air accumulates in the pleural cavity and impairs the functioning of the lungs and heart. Rapid and effective chest seal application is crucial to prevent this dangerous condition and save lives.
Beacon Medical’s Advanced Chest Seal Application Products

Step-by-Step Guide to Chest Seal Application
Follow these simple steps to effectively apply a Beacon Medical chest seal:
Assess the wound: Inspect the wound and surrounding area, ensuring that you identify both entry and exit wounds, if applicable.
Clean the area: Use a sterile gauze pad to wipe away any debris, blood, or sweat from the skin surrounding the wound.
Remove the backing: Carefully peel the backing off the chest seal, exposing the adhesive side.
Apply the chest seal: Firmly press the adhesive side of the chest seal onto the skin, completely covering the wound. Ensure there are no wrinkles or air bubbles.
Secure the seal: Smooth the chest seal’s edges, creating an airtight seal around the wound.
Monitor the patient: Continuously observe the patient’s breathing and chest movement, checking for signs of tension pneumothorax or seal failure.
