OLAES® 6" Modular Bandage
The Tactical Medical Solutions 6" Olaes® Modular Bandage is the newest generation of trauma bandages and is advantageous for all levels of care providers. Packed with features such as 3 meters of gauze, a removable occlusive plastic sheet behind the dressing pad, and a pressure cup that can also act as an eye cup, the advanced capabilities of the bandage are tucked neatly away and can be utilized or ignored. No hooks or clips to confuse or delay care. Velcro® 'Control' strips prevent the elastic roll from accidentally unraveling and secure the bandage throughout the application process.
Designed with direct input from some of the most experienced combat medics in the world, no detail has been left out. From the adhesive 'brakes' on the elastic bandage that prevent accidental unrolling, to the zig-zag packed gauze that easily feeds from the bandage, this is the most comprehensive feature packed bandage available without any added confusion. No other bandage offers so much versatility in such a small package. Cover minor wounds, apply truly effective pressure dressings, apply occlusive dressings, and have the ability to pack severe wounds with one bandage.
During high stress situations, such as those involving casualties, stress effects on human performance often affect the fine motor skills of individuals. This makes simple tasks such as bandage application more difficult and time consuming. By creating a bandage where application involves only gross motor skills, no direction changes around hooks or bars, the Olaes® Modular Bandage offers a more effective solution in bandage options. The elastic simply requires wrapping, where the elastic stays flat instead of turning into a cord. Control of the elastic roll is maintained by the 'Control Strips' should the elastic be dropped. You no longer have to open or carry a package of gauze and a separate bandage as both are included.
A TRUE PRESSURE CUP
The unique pressure cup generates true focused pressure on top of the wound site where it is required, not circumferential pressure. By generating this focused pressure it helps occlude damaged vessels at the wound site where it is needed. It also reduces the amount of manual pressure required to be held, freeing up the care provider to treat other injuries or casualties. The pressure cup can also be removed and used as an eye cup for treatment of ocular injuries as recommended in the new TCCC guidelines.

Great price. Packs easily since it is vacuumed. Fulfills many rolls so you don't need a ton of different dressings in your bag. Works like an Israeli, a Z-pack gauze, a compression dressing. It also opens easily. I am not sure the plastic cup makes a huge difference but it likely does focus pressure to some degree.
A Must Have Item

This truly is the most versatile trauma dressing out there and at a super competitive price. I could go on and on about their uses and functions but just check them out on youtube. Weather it's a bug out bag, a vehicle emergency kit, an EDC bag, a camping/hunting pack or a glove box in your car, this is a must have multi use trauma item. The vacuum packaging is very rugged and durable so they will last even when thrown around with other gear. They are priced right so be sure to buy at least one more than you want to open up and train/familiarize yourself with. Combine it with a quality tourniquet and your set for any bleeding emergency.
