Performance Systems presents an innovative, combat proven first-aid device for the staunching of blood flow from traumatic hemorrhage wounds in pre-hospital emergency situations.
This 6" wide, all-in-one device consolidates multiple first-aid devices such as a primary dressing, pressure applicator, secondary dressing, and a foolproof closure apparatus to secure the bandage in place. This internationally patented and FDA approved bandage is the ideal solution for emergency treatment when every second counts.
The Emergency Bandage is designed for quick and easy application by professional and non-professional caregivers to provide effective, multi-functional treatment.
The Emergency Bandage's sterile, non-adherent pad applies pressure to any site, can be easily wrapped and secured, and has an additional application, similar to a tourniquet, to further constrict blood-flow.
The product is so easy to use that even an injured person can self-apply thebandage with one hand.

"Thank you very much for your effort to get the EB to us just before Op Iraqi Freedom. During the war the bandage performed spectacularly. Every medic in my unit had them in his aid bag, we used it in our combat lifesaver bags and our aid station used it as the primary dressing for bleeding wounds. It performed well and was easy to teach to the non-medical personnel. It was less expensive to equip my medics with your dressing than the standard equipment, and took up less space in their aid bags. My chain of command is sold on your dressing... we will continue to use it as my unit's primary trauma dressing, replacing the standard field dressing."
1LT Mike Nesbitt, PA-C Battalion, Physician Assistant, 1-9 FA Battlekings
"We just debriefed from Seal Team 3, your bandage was a big hit in Afghanistan. Our Seal corpsmen used them on Seals, Army and Marine wounded. All our Seal platoons will now deploy with your dressing!" SFC Robert M Miller, Medical Plans, Requirements and Standardization, 75th Ranger Regiment "As of 10 December 2002 the Emergency Bandage is the official primary battle dressing for the 75th Ranger Regiment, United States Special Operations Command. The EB was selected as the "Best in Class" based on manufacturing, effectiveness, ease of use and price."
Carl Bernstein, HM1/ 18D / SEAL TEAM 7
"Sept. 11, 2001 will always be a day in history no one will ever forget. Now Sept. 12, 2002 will live on as a day in history for the Pasco Sheriff's Office because on that day while executing a narcotics search warrant one of my brother deputies was shot in the head just above the right eye, penetrating and shattering his sinus cavity. Two weeks prior to this incident I attended a Tactical Medic Class, at this location I learned about your bandage and its amazing features. On the evening of Sept. 12, 2002 I placed one of the sample bandages in my SWAT Medic bag and once I assessed the Deputy's wound I by-passed any traditional bandages and immediately used the EB because of its effectiveness in controlling and securing to hed wounds in a matter of seconds. The Deputy spent only four days in the hospital and was released pending further evaluation, but your bandage was a Godsend for me that night. I am now working on issuing the SWAT team these bandages as standard equipment."
Cpl. Peter Roehrig, Pasco Sheriff's Office
"Those exposed to the bandage have been overwhelmingly amazed and interested in its ease of use and function. Especially when compared to the "traditional" field pressure dressing. I found it interesting just how quickly "non medical" personnel were able to adapt to the bandage and use it properly."
William Madden, Medical Operations, 10th WMD CST
"The emergency bandage has proven worth its weight in gold during combat maneuvers in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am really impressed with the versatility of the bandage combined with the speed and ease of use. During use in treatment of patients with multiple wounds, including the unique tourniquet application, the emergency bandage has saved time and lives. The emergency bandage is well on its way to being one of the greatest assets emergency personnel can have."
Bob Scavelli, PA - C
"A couple of years ago I was sent to Afghanistan to do some hospital construction. One of the items I was given in my first aid kit was one of your compression bandages (part # FCP-01 stock # 6510-01-460-0849). Yesterday I had a chance to see how well the worked. I was doing some wood carving and somehow managed to push one of my chisles into my wrist. In the process I punctured a vein. Lots of blood coming out real fast. I manage to loose about a pint before I got your bandage on.
When I finally applied the bandage I was able to accomplish it with one hand. The bleeding slowed immediately and stopped completely before I could get to medical help. Later in ER when they removed the bandage the wound was clean and sealed while the bandage was removed without sticking. I can compare your bandage to the one I was given in the 1970's and 1980's when I was on active duty. I have now used both in trama situations and while I would prefer not to have the occasion to use either, yours is so much better the the original. I don't know how many lives your bandages have saved but I want to thank you for each one, especially mine."
