Rapid Stop Tourniquet

Category: SKU: RST-B

Description

An individual who has sustained an injury to the arm or a leg and fully severed either the brachial, radial or ulnar artery has a window of approximately 60 seconds to stabilize the limb before decreasing blood pressure renders the individual unconscious. Shock can set in even sooner. Achieving full occlusion in the shortest time possible is critical. Faster application means the injured are stabilized sooner and/or more victims can be saved.

This intuitive, strong, lifesaving tourniquet should be an essential part of First Aid Kits where the risk of extreme trauma is high:

  • Military
  • Civilian First Responder
  • High Risk Industries
  • Extreme Outdoor Sports
