LifeWrap Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) Now Available on VIAVIA Global Health
The LifeWrap NASG is a lightweight and reusable first aid compression device used to treat shock and manage obstetric haemorrhage. Once in place, the LifeWrap NASG applies enough circumferential counter pressure to decrease blood loss and reverse shock by increasing blood pressure to the heart, brain, and lungs. In so doing, it reverses hypovolaemic shock resulting from Obstetric Haemorrhage, and has proven effective in stabilizing patients for up to 3 days, while patients are transported to a health center with the ability to administer blood transfusions and provide definitive medical or surgical interventions.
“The NASG is a true life saving device for women in shock and close to death due to PPH. This is a major life saving support device, easy to administer by any health personnel and needs to be available for pregnant women everywhere and particularly in low resource countries.”
