The suspension strap allowing for convenient suspension from the operator during Tactical Field Care and Combat CASEVAC. It can also be hung via conventional means when available.
It rapidly converts to an improvised pressure infuser when combined with an adult sphygmomanometer. This feature allows for the even application of positive pressure to the IV fluid supporting IO infusion and easing horizontal transport near the casualty. This minimizes the dependence on gravity, IV poles, and lengthy IV lines during Tactical Field Care and Combat CASEVAC or MEDEVAC operations.
The use of IV fluids across the environmental spectrum is made possible by combining low-temperature resistant vinyl with lightweight neoprene to provide insulation and suspension strap provides a means to hang one or two bags assisting in the maintenance of optimum fluid temperatures.
