You may have heard of this tourniquet before. Maybe because it was awarded by the US Army as one of the Top 10 Greatest Inventions in 2005. Or maybe because it was recommended by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care and proven to be 100% effective by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research. This tourniquet was also awarded the best pre-hospital tourniquet in the February 2008 supplement of The Journal of Trauma.
There is a reason for all that fame. This tourniquet is arguably the best tourniquet ever made. It has the strongest ever windlass rod with an improved grip that will allow you to stop bleeding quickly and efficiently. And the security tab includes a writeable area to record the time of the application. Do the right thing – get yourself one of these.
