Inventor Issued Patent For Revolutionary
New Wound Dressing
Unique bandage is impervious to chemical and biological warfare agents
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 15,
2004--Local resident, Jeremy McGowan has been granted a patent for a revolutionary bandage
which is impervious to chemical and biological warfare agents. Not only is this a
tremendous advance for the care of soldiers and other personnel wounded in potentially
chemically and/or biologically contaminated environments the astounding part is he wrote
this patent himself without having a medical background.
Jeremy McGowan, the inventor of the
Chem-Bio Dressing announced today he has received a letter from the United
States Patent and Trademark Office stating his new, multi-layered wound dressing, which he
predicts will result in numerous saved lives in the Military and Law Enforcement
communities will receive a patent. The wound dressing is impervious to chemical and
biological warfare agents such as: anthrax, tabun, sarin, soman, VX gas, and numerous
other lethal gases and liquids.
Mr. McGowan is currently seeking a
partner in the wound care industry to manufacture the dressing for commercialization in
the U.S. market, which is estimated at $2.5 billion.
The idea for this wound dressing
came to me several years ago while I was in the Air Force. I was training in a simulated
chemical warfare environment when I fell, ripping my protective suit and cutting my leg.
Our combat medic came to my aid and put a normal bandage on my leg, then sealed it by
wrapping duct-tape around the bandage and around the ripped chemical suit. I
thought to my self there has to be a better way. So, at the end of the exercise I went
home and began researching bandages, and developed this one. This bandage is impervious to
chemical and biological warfare agents and has the unique ability to have the absorbent
pads removed and replaced or added to without disrupting the wound healing process. It
also has the ability to de-contaminate the wound. In my opinion this is one heck of a lot
better than duct-tape.
