Severe wounds do happen and you might only have seconds to help before it’s too late. Using a trauma wound dressing means you can stem the flow of blood from a wound and protect it from dirt and debris until professional help arrives..
Emergency trauma dressings are thicker and more robust than regular dressings to help absorb heavy bleeding and provide a decent cushioning pad to apply even and consistent pressure over a large area.
