The MARCH™ Dart™ gives providers at any skill level the confidence and capability to perform reliable chest decompression and improve outcomes for casualties with tension pneumothorax, the third leading cause of preventable traumatic death.

The Dart™ is a sterile, 14 gauge x 3.25” needle with a uniformed, thick-walled catheter. The design minimizes the risk of catheter collapse in the intercostal space.  The sure-grip hub ensures stability in difficult environments. The rugged case was designed for easy, one-handed opening and doubles as a sharps container for patient and practitioner safety.

The Dart’s™ six-year shelf life lowers lifecycle costs when compared to most chest decompression needles.
