|Giveaway Combat Application Tourniquet|
Three Critical Items:
- Use the tourniquet only when it necessary to save a life.
- Use the windlass to increase pressure to stop bleeding.
- After you apply the tourniquet do never take it off only a physician can do so.
I tested it on my wrist and was impressed with the ultra long velcro band. This would be good if your "patient" were of considerable size and needed the band placed on a robust thigh. Granted, I've never seen a tourniquet in person before. Ever. But, in a bad situation, I would do my best to help one that needed it.
