SAM Pelvic Sling™ II



El Sam Pelvic Sling II se ha diseñado para garantizar la fuerza correcta sobre las fracturas pélvicas, a diferencia de otras "fajas" que permiten que se aplique una fuerza ilimitada sobre el paciente.
Los investigadores del Legacy Health System han realizado estudios clínicos con cadáveres para determinar el grado óptimo de la fuerza necesaria para cerrar de una forma segura y efectiva una fractura pélvica inestable. El sistema "Autostop" patentado del Sam Pelvic Sling II no permite que la fuerza de compresión sea superior a 14,97 Kg. Este factor es vital para situaciones de gran estrés en las cuales el personal médico podría presionar demasiado y ser perjudicial para el paciente.

Sam Pelvic Hevilla
Acabamos con las Dudas
Nuestro sistema de "Autostop" patentado proporciona la fuerza idónea en todo momento eliminando así la duda de cuanto se debe de apretar el cinturón pélvico. Este sistema está programado de tal forma que la hebilla deja de presionar cuando se obtiene la fuerza de compresión idónea. Las dos puntas de la hebilla se sueltan e impiden que el cinturón apriete más.

SAM PELVIC SLING II
FOR STABILIZATION OF PELVIC FRACTURES WITH THE CORRECT FORCE
The SAM Pelvic Sling™ II is the first and only force-controlled circumferential pelvic belt scientifically proven in peer-reviewed studies to safely and effectively reduce and stabilize open-book pelvic ring fractures. The SAM Pelvic Sling II was designed not to over-tighten or under-tighten, unlike other commercial binders which allow unlimited force to be applied to the patient. Researchers at Legacy Health System utilized cadaver studies and clinical trials to determine the optimum range of force required to safely and effectively close an unstable pelvic fracture.
The SAM Pelvic Sling II's patented Autostop buckle is programmed to stop your pull once the correct compression force has been obtained. This is vital in high stress environments where over-tightening by emergency medical personnel under duress could potentially be extreme and harmful.
Trauma surgeons around the world recognize the importance of stabilizing pelvic fractures during the critical first "golden hour" following severe trauma. Because of the potentially devastating hemorrhage associated with such fractures, standard first aid protocol includes applying some type of circumferential binder around the victim's hips.
ONE-PIECE DESIGN
The SAM Pelvic Sling II offers a simpler one-piece design with no detachable hardware. It is compact, easy to use (only three steps), and quick to apply (usually in less than one minute). The standard size fits (without cutting or trimming) 98% of the adult population. It does not require a fine touch to operate and gives clear feedback by sound and feel to confirm correct application.
The sling is durable and unaffected by extremes of moisture and temperature or by exposure to hard or sharp objects. It is also radiolucent, MRI safe, and can be cleaned for re-use with common detergents or anti-microbial solutions.
APPLIES IN 3 EASY STEPS
IMPORTANT WARNING
Based on in vitro testing, the SAM Pelvic Sling™ II will not present a hazard or risk to a patient undergoing an MRI procedure using an MR system operating at 3-Tesla or less. The SAM Pelvic Sling™ II contains ferromagnetic springs in the buckle. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the SAM Pelvic Sling™ II is firmly applied to the patient prior to entry into the MRI environment (as stated in the labeling for this device). Accordingly, there will be no hazard or risk to a patient undergoing an MRI procedure. The SAM Pelvic Sling™ II should not be removed from the patient while in the MRI system room.
WHY DOES CONTROLLING CIRCUMFERENTIAL FORCE MATTER IN THE TREATMENT OF PELVIC FRACTURES?
At the time of initial evaluation, the exact type of fracture is usually unknown. In some cases, too little force will not close or stabilize the fracture; in others, too much force can collapse the pelvic ring. The SAM Pelvic Sling II stands alone as the only pelvic binder pre-programmed to apply the safe and correct force for all pelvic fractures.
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
• Scientifically and clinically proven to provide safe and effective force to stabilize pelvic fractures
• Buckle maintains correct force; cannot be over-tightened
• Standard size fits 98% of population
• "Click" provides clear feedback to confirm correct application
• Pulling gradually and symmetrically increases sling tension and reduces the pelvis
• Low friction posterior slider facilitates transfers
• Front of Sling is narrow and tapered to facilitate urinary catheterization, interventional radiology, external fixation and abdominal surgery
• Fabric does not stretch and cleans for reuse with standard detergents or antimicrobial solutions
• Radiolucent (allowing for X-rays without removal)
• Ease of application: just insert belt through buckle, pull strap, and secure
• Velcro on strap and sling for quick and easy fastening
• Reusable, not a onetime use device
• Latex free
