The Prometheus Bleed Control Kit was developed with the input of the West Midlands Ambulance Service and Birmingham Community Safety Partnership to provide a comprehensive bleed control solution.
The pack is lightweight, allowing it to be attached to personnel, hung up or kept within vehicles. The kit is in a high visibility red pack, allowing for rapid identification. It includes basic instructions for the lay person to have a straightforward understanding of the equipment included and where/how to apply.
The kits are purchased through Prometheus Medical Ltd. and ensures it conforms to the Critical Injury Pack requirements of British Standard BS8599:1:2019
For every pack sold a donation of £5 will be given to the Daniel Baird Foundation.
Instructions are already included in the kit and Prometheus are also in the process of developing some training videos on how to use the kit.
