Combat Medical Systems Announces Combat Gauze XL

by December 12, 2011 12/12/11

Eric’s been out at the SOMA Convention (Special Operations Medical Association) this past weekend checking out the show and grabbed some photos of the new Combat Gauze XL by Combat Medical Systems.

Developed with feedback from the field, where medics were having to use more than one package of Combat Gauze in certain situations and wanted a larger version. The new XL contains 4″ x 4 yds. of Z-Folded Combat Gauze w/ x-ray detectable strip. The standard MIL/LE (green package) of Combat Gauze contains 3″ x 4 yds of Z-Folded Combat Gauze w/ x-ray detectable strip.

Despite the increased width of the XL, the vacuum sealed package is the same overall size as the standard MIL/LE package.

Combat Gauze XL

No word yet if Z-Medica will be producing an XL version of their Combat Gauze LE (for Law Enforcement and trained medical professionals). Something we commonly get asked about with our ETA Trauma Kits is what the difference is between the MIL/LE only version and the Standard version.

As the green package of Combat Gauze is to only be sold to Military and Law Enforcement per Combat Medical Systems requirement, we have to state that the MIL/LE ETA Kit is to be sold to Military and Law Enforcement only. The Standard ETA Kit is exactly the same as the MIL/LE kit, but utilizes the black package of Combat Gauze LE that can be sold to Law Enforcement AND trained medical professionals.

Combat Gauze LE is still Z-Folded, the only difference between the two is that there’s no X-Ray Detectable Strip in the Combat Gauze LE.

I just have to add the guys from CMS are awesome and this is a veteran owned company that is all about the end user. Whether in law enforcement or military.

They took time out of their schedule at SOMA to meet with me which I really appreciate.
