Introducing 6 New NSNs!

Six New National Stock Numbers

Chinook™ Medical Gear is proud to announce that we have received six new National Stock Numbers.

NSN products are officially recognized as the standardization of parts and supplies for civilian and military operations by the United States government, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and many governments around the world, including the Department of Defense (DOD). The 13-digit NSN code is used to identify and monitor all criteria as per the Defense Logistics Agency, including military requirements for testing and evaluation.


Ultra-Lite Gamow™ BagUltra-Lite Gamow Bag

The Ultra-Lite Gamow™ Bag (pronounced ‘Gam-off’) is a unique, portable Hyperbaric Chamber for the treatment of altitude sickness. By increasing air pressure around the patient, the Ultra-Lite Gamow Bag simulates a descent of several thousand feet, thus improving the symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). The Ultra-Lite Gamow™ Bag is constructed out of a durable lightweight nylon fabric and reinforced with circular nylon webbing that is capable of litter carry.  A lengthwise zipper allows for easy entrance and exit for the patient and the 2 clear windows allow for patient monitoring. The Bag is pressurized with ambient air up to 2 psi by use of a lightweight foot pump; there is a release valve to prevent over-inflation.


The Ultra-Lite Gamow Bag and foot pump are packaged in a lightweight nylon drawstring bag for transportation and weighs a total of 7.7 pounds, making it 5 pounds lighter than the standard Gamow Bag.
