Pelican BioThermal – Golden Hour One

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

Pelican BioThermal launched their New Golden Hour One at last week’s SOMSA. It’s the latest generation of award-winning Golden Hour technology — a smaller, lighter reusable container for transporting blood to the battlefield.

The new product is a smaller-scale, nimble, reusable thermal packaging container for transporting whole blood products. With Golden Hour One, military units can more easily transport life-saving blood to far-forward combat areas where they are needed most during the first critical hour after injury — regardless of extreme conditions.

Golden Hour technology was invented by Pelican BioThermal in 2003 at the request of the US Army to address the need to securely, reliably and safely transport blood to battlefields away from fixed medical facilities. These battlefields are often situated in regions with extreme conditions that could result in temperature excursions that damage blood supplies. Golden Hour temperature-controlled containers resolved this issue and received the US Army’s Greatest Invention Award for their innovation.

“Since we developed the Golden Hour technology more than 15 years ago, we have continually expanded the line to meet the ever-evolving needs of the military,” said Kevin Lawler, vice president of worldwide sales at Pelican BioThermal. “The launch of Golden Hour One answers the call for an even more portable container to transport blood supplies from anywhere in the world to any battlefield in the world.”

The ultra-light Golden Hour One holds a single unit of whole blood and maintains temperature for 18 hours under extreme conditions without external energy. And under less challenging conditions, it can keep blood cool for up to 36-plus hours. These temperature controlled containers are easy to use and assemble and consist of safe, reusable non-toxic materials.

Golden Hour One joins Pelican BioThermal’s proven family of Golden Hour products. The original Golden Hour Mobile transports up to four units of red blood cells (RBCs) and maintains temperature control in excess of 72 hours under extreme conditions. Golden Hour Medic stores up to two units of whole blood, keeps blood cool for 24 hours under extreme conditions and performs up to 48-plus hours under optimal conditions.

SOMSA 19 – SAM Chest Seal

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

We all know the SAM Splint but they also manufacture other medical devices like this chest seal.


The chest seal adheres via Hydrogel and integrates a rigid, raised-dome valve to ensure one-way airflow from the chest cavity, no matter the pressure applied. Large side vents minimize internal obstruction from blood clots or soft tissue.


SOMSA 19 – ZipStitch

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

Mover over butterfly bandages, there’s a new way to secure cuts.

Used in clinical settings for several years, ZipStitch is now available over the counter for use at home.

Designed to close wounds up to 1.5″ in length and 1/8″ wide, ZipStitch utilizes an adhesive which lasts up to seven days. The advantage is that you can close a wound immediately without access to definitive care.

You attach the bandage to either side of the wound, pull the tabs taut and trim the excess.

ZipStitch is now even available on Amazon.

SOMSA 19 – Tactical Mechanical Tourniquet

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

Last week, the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) issued a revised list of approved medical devices for TCCC. This is the first time that new tourniquets have been added to the list in years.

One of these new tourniquets is the Tactical Mechanical Tourniquet available through Combat Medical.

The TMT is now the widest approved TQ. Applied within 30 seconds, the buckle secures the running end of the strap and the windless is secured via a clip. You can both hear and feel when the windless is correctly secured. Additionally, it can be self applied if needed with the strap already running through the buckle. In fact, it will fit limbs between 5-3/4″ and 38″.

The TMT has also been assigned NSN 6515-01-656-6191.
