Heterotopic ossification (HO) refers to the formation of mature lamellar bone in nonosseous tissue. In the setting of high-energy wartime extremity wounds, HO is expected to complicate up to 64% of patients, has a predilection for the residual limbs of amputees, and remains a significant source of disability. Although the inciting events and the definitive cell(s) of origin continue to remain elusive, animal models and human histology samples suggest that HO formation follows a predictable sequence of events culminating in endochondral ossification. Primary prophylaxis is not medically or logistically practical in most cases because patients have generally sustained massive wounds and are undergoing serial debridements during an intercontinental aeromedical evacuation. Surgical excision of symptomatic lesions is warranted only after an appropriate trial of conservative measures and is associated with low recurrence rates in appropriately selected patients. Future research regarding prognostication and defining the early molecular biology of ectopic bone may permit individualized prophylaxis and development of novel targeted therapies.

A wound dressing is made of multiple layers and includes a collection chamber that is in fluid communication with a drainage channel. When applied over a wound, the wound dressing provides protection for the wound while allowing air and fluids to evacuate from the wound through the collection chamber and out through the drainage channel. The wound dressing can include a valve that restricts air and fluids from entering the wound, which is beneficial for treating pneumothorax.

A container having a base and a cap is disclosed herein for protecting needles and/or catheters during transport. The base has a cavity for storing the needle and/or catheter and a flange region for securing the needle and/or catheter within the base. The cap can be releasably coupled to the base and provide a seal to protect the needle and/or catheter from contamination. Semi-permeable plugs can be disposed on the ends of the base and cap to enable gas sterilization of the container and the needle and/or catheter contained inside.

A durable and reliable illuminating scissor is disclosed herein having a cutting shear and a light source for illuminating the cutting area. The light source can be connected to a part of the cutting shear and can have an internal power source and light bulb. The light source can shine a visible, or other type of light, toward the cutting area to increase visibility for the user.

A template for locating a proper place for inserting a needle. The template has two reference indicators (14, 16) that are placed on a persons body and an elongated body (12), with incremental markings (20) on each side of the elongated body, that moves relative to the two reference indicators. The incremental markings on each side of the elongated body can be scaled differently. One reference indicator (14, e.g. shaped like a bone) is placed over the clavicle and the other (16, e.g. having a round shape) is placed over the nipple on the same lateral side. The elongated body is moved until the reference indicators are each lined up with equivalent incremental markings on each half of the elongated body. When the reference indicators are lined up with matching incremental markings, a fixed target (18), positioned between the two sets of incremental markings, will indicate a proper location for inserting a pneumothorax relief needle.

A wound dressing includes a wound-filling member attached to a hemostasis inducer that can be impregnated with an active compound, such as coagulants. The wound dressing can be placed in wounds to provide pressure, as well as chemical action, to promote blood coagulation and thereby arrest bleeding. A wrap can be attached to the wound dressing to provide an easy and quick method of securing the wound dressing. The wound dressing can be compressed in a small package for easy transport.

A wound dressing can include an adhesive dressing with a diaphragm vent that allows the passage of gas out of a patients body but restricts the flow of gas into the body. A sensor device is positioned so as to be able to sample gas passing through the vent and measure one or more gas characteristics, such as temperature, humidity, and/or pressure. If the data from the sensor device exceeds certain parameters suggestive of a pneumothorax, a processing device can activate an alert system, such as an indicator light, audible alarm, and/or wireless signal, to alert the care provider.
