The Rolling Mass Casualty Kit The Rolling Mass Casualty Kit provides sig- nificant enhancements in capabilities, functional- ity and versatility over every other multi-casualty kit. A large rolling duffle, complete with removable shoulder straps, enables the kit to be quickly and easily transported over long distances and in stairwells. Inside are ten removable Trauma Pouches, each individually capable of treating 3-4 casualties having traumatic injuries. These pouches include tourniquets, pres- sure bandages, hemostatic agents, chest seals, airways and other essential equipment. Two additional internal pouches contain much larger abdominal bandages and hypothermia blankets. Within the lid are multiple moldable splints and burn/blast dressings. Tucked away on either side of the inner compartment are six disposable pole-less litters. The Rolling Mass Casualty Kit was specifi- cally designed for civilian first responders to use in any location where large crowds typically gather. Due to its easy transportability, there are several options for deploying this kit: • Permanently Positioned – Shopping Malls, Schools, Transportation Hubs, etc. • Pre-staged for Special Events – Stadiums, Arenas, Tent Events, etc. • Transported by Vehicle – Carried on Emergency Response Vehicles. As with all TACOPS® medical kits, TSSi will modify the contents of the Rolling Mass Casu- alty Kit at the user's discretion to best support your organization's budget and specific equip- ment preferences. ZANFEL Get Troops Back in the Field in 3 Minutes! What is Zanfel? Zanfel® Poison Ivy Wash is the only product clinically shown to remove urushiol, the toxin found in poison ivy, oak, and sumac, and many other plants around the world, ANYTIME after outbreak of the rash. Zanfel relieves itching within 30 seconds. Unlike Zanfel, other products temporarily reduce itch- ing but do nothing to remove urushiol. With a small amount of water, Zanfel removes urushiol during a 3-minute skin wash. Once the urushiol has been removed, the body is in a position to immediately heal the rash. In addition to being used as a treatment for poison ivy, oak and sumac, Zanfel is also extremely effective for pain and itch associated with: • Mosquito and Chigger Bites • Sand Flea and Sand Fly Bites • Bee, Wasp and Hornet Stings • Fire Ant and Black Ant Bites • Other Insect Bites and Stings NEW ITEM! Zanfel can be applied on any external body area, including the face and genitals. There are no known side effects. Zanfel is available at your local Exchange Store, along with retail pharmacies. Zanfel Benefits and Savings to the Medical Command and the Warfighter: • Force protection and readiness through rapid and improved return to duty (RTD) rate, after outbreak. • Improved training success, as a result of reduced student recycle rates. • Significant and immediate cost savings to the unit and medical command. • Reduced cost to the force and dependents globally for DoD. XSTAT® 12 RevMedx™ and Panakeia Introduce XSTAT® 12. The United States Army Institute of Surgi- cal Research reports that 30 to 40 percent of civilian deaths by traumatic injury are the result of hemorrhaging; of those deaths, 33 to 56 percent occur before the patient reaches an emergency care facility. RevMedx, Inc. and its partner, Panakeia are pleased to offer the XSTAT 12, a recently FDA- cleared hemostatic device that will help save lives by treating life-threatening bleeding from penetrating wounds in junctional areas (where the legs or arms meet the torso). XSTAT 12 works by injecting a group of small, rapidly-expanding sponges into a wound cavity using a syringe-like applicator. In a wound, the sponges rapidly expand and exert hemostatic pressure. Each sponge contains an x-ray detectable marker to confirm complete surgical removal. "We are pleased to provide medical profes- sionals with this additional tool for responding to life-threatening bleeding" said Pamela Jack- son, COO & Co-Founder for Panakeia. "XSTAT 12 will save lives by providing professional first responders expanded capa- bilities across a wider range of life threaten- ing situations, including penetrating trauma from smaller caliber bullets and stab wounds," added Andrew Barofsky, CEO and President of RevMedx, Inc.
