Green Dot Systems
We are dedicated to providing medical products and devices for Military medics and austere rescue practitioners that are unparalleled by any other in the field. Our products and devices are unconventional in design and function. Our product design process begins with the ideas and requests of military medical and austere medical practitioners. Our focus is on filling the need, eliminating or decreasing process steps by simplifying applications to optimize efficiency under the most adverse conditions using an “outside the wire” mentality.
Green Dot Systems trilaterally with our technical and manufacturing partners are continually researching and developing new and unique devices and products in an effort to provide the best quality and the latest technology to create products that will benefit practitioners in the austere medical theatre.
The accurate and timely delivery of critical care in austere environments proves challenging both from a logistical and tactical standpoint. The form factor and weight of any product carried forward on the battlefield is of maximal importance, especially when the provider is limited to what they can carry on their back. Ideally, all devices that are carried have multiple uses and purposes.
The Critical Care Line is a solution for the full spectrum of casualty care; from point of injury through evacuation to the surgical bay.
Current guidelines from the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care (CoTCCC) place blood product administration as the first-line for any casualty requiring damage control resuscitation (DCR). The use of plasma (freeze-dried or liquid) is also recommended. All blood products (fresh whole blood, packed red cells, plasma, etc.) require at a minimum 170 micron filtration prior to delivery to the patient.
Currently, there are no products on the market that fulfil this need in conjunction with medication administration. These medications include Tranexamic Acid (TXA). The Critical Care Line fills this capability gap. The Critical Care Line gives providers in the far-forward environment a tool to reduce logistical footprint and deal with the complex multi-trauma system patient with confidence and ease.
The U.S. Army has developed a Critical Care Paramedic Program for all MEDEVAC medics, the Air Force has long had Critical Care Air Transport Teams (CCAT), and the Navy has used its “Shock Trauma Platoons” with great success. Special Operations Forces have been using blood products for several years. The CCL will enhance already delivered care and ensure that the raised skill levels of the military medical provider are met with appropriate armamentarium. There is a need for this product.
With the addition Blood products as first-line for the combat casualty and the already adopted use of Tranexamic Acid (TXA), the Role I provider is faced with a capability gap. Either carry multiple lines for these separate tasks, or carry the Critical Care Line- “the last line your patient will ever need.” TXA must be administered within three hours of injury, and the trauma patient is a logistically depleting task.
The critical care line increases the care delivered to those in their darkest hour and reduces the stress on the provider delivering their care.
