APLS Life Guard

APLS Life Guard — A Small Pouch That Becomes A Life Saver

APLS Life Guard is an extremely compact portable litter that provides essential thermal and absorbent protection during emergency rescues and evacuations.

APLS Life Guard provides the features of a more extensive portable litter system, but in a more efficient and streamlined design.

The compact portable litter features a Mylar lining that helps retain body heat while a treated nylon backing protects against wind and moisture.

A highly absorbent cellulose core wicks fluids away from the patient, thus providing an additional level of protection.

A robust Velcro zipper provides easy access to the patient and eight padded handles enable first responders to quickly transport the patient.

APLS Life Guard can retain 1.7 liters of bodily fluid while safely supporting up to 350 pounds.
