Snake Bite BandageRegular price $9.95 Save $-9.95
TacMed Australia is now stocking the AeroForm Snake Bite Bandage.
This bandage was purposely designed for the Pressure Immobilisation Technique (PIT), which is used for the treatment of all Australian Snake and Funnel Webbed Spider bites, Blue Ringed Octopus and Cone Shell sting.
The AeroForm Snakebite Bandage is 10cm wide and longer (3.5M) than most crepe or elastic bandages. This bandage stretches to an incredible 10m which is sufficient length to bandage a large adult leg. The unique stitching technology ensures the correct pressure is evenly applied to the entire limb. Both of these requirements are a must for the effective treatment of snakebite.
This bandage is a definite must-have item in a remote or wilderness first aid kit!

BurnTec DressingsRegular price $30.15 Save $-30.15
In partnership with North American Rescue, TacMed is proud to introduce the addition of BurnTec Burns Dressings to our range. Used throughout Europe and the USA, BurnTec dressings are the latest hi-tech development in pre-hospital treatment of burns. BurnTec hydrogel dressings differentiate from all other burns dressings due to their 'stable-sheeting' hydrogel structure.
Owing to the stable-sheeting hydrogel structure, the BurnTec dressings guarantee even coverage and distribution of cooling activity over the entire burn surface - even for the most extensive of injuries. BurnTec dressings effectively cool the injured area and ensure a soothing effect for up to 24 hours. The sterile non-stick dressing is also absorbent, therefore trapping wound secretion and bacteria within the gel.
Permeable to water vapor and oxygen but impermeable to bacteria, BurnTec dressings protect wounds from external contamination while allowing them to breathe.
The composition materials are biocompatible and hypoallergenic. BurnTec has received recognition for its breakthrough innovation at the: -42nd World Exhibition of Inventions and Innovation Brussels Eureka -International Exhibition of Inventions (IENA) in Nurnberg -International Exhibition Genius in Budapest.

Setopress High Compression BandageRegular price $21.75 Save $-21.75
Setopress High Compression Bandage
The Setopress High Compression Bandage is perfect for use with the Pressure Immobilisation Technique (PIT). PIT is used for the treatment of all Australian Snakes, Funnel Webbed Spiders, Blue Ringed Octopus and Cone Shell stings.
The Setopress High Compression Bandage is popular with people who work or play outdoors. The visual application guide makes it easy to apply the Setopress bandage consistently and correctly when the adrenaline is pumping and the seconds count.
Offering two compression options, the Setopress bandage has brown rectangles printed on one side (recommended for PIT), and green rectangles on the other. When stretched correctly the rectangles become squares which provide over 30mmHg (brown square) and 20mmHg (green square) of pressure. This easy to use visual guide ensures that the limb has the correct amount of pressure applied for a PIT.
Unlike other bandages, the Setopress is 3.5m long un-stretched. This is long enough to treat even the longest of limbs! Being able to completely bandage a limb is a must with snakebite.
