 Product Description

Also known as a chest decompression pneumothorax needle the new and improved Air Release System ARS® for Needle Decompression from North American Rescue combined the best minds and data in the field.  The result? Our patented design improves the probability of success when managing casualties present with signs and symptoms of a tension pneumothorax.

To achieve this end, we participated in a two-year collaboration with pre-hospital providers. We continuously analyzed data obtained from ongoing combat operations for patients whose symptoms suggested a collapsed lung (difficulty in breathing, chest drains, etc.). We applied the Analytical Thinking, Evidence-based Medicine and Human Factors engineering model to identify inherent survival stress behaviors.

Then, North American Rescue went one step further. We incorporated failsafe characteristics into the product design. For example, an easy-open container protects the needle from damage during deployment. Also, we removed the flash cap from the needle system to allow immediate confirmation of placement.


  • Rugged needle/catheter protective tube
  • Easy ID textured twist top with handy clip
  • Easy-open container for quick access
  • Capless flash chamber for immediate confirmation of needle placement
