Tytek Medical, PneumoDart
The PneumoDart is a reliable solution for treating a tension pneumothorax injury, or sucking chest wound. Our robust innovation helps you to get it right, first time.
It offers better efficiency, safety and important physical features. Typical methods for treating this kind of injury include the application of a plastic seal over the chest wound to inserting a needle catheter into the chest to drain air out of the chest and relieve pressure. However, successful application of a traditional pneumothorax needle has proven difficult.
Our needle is 3.25” which is the optimal length as recommended by the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) who inspired the PneumoDart and we developed it with the US Department of Defense during a robust testing and evaluation phase.
