Emergency Tourniquet Description

This emergency tourniquet is designed similarly to the renowned C-A-T Tourniquet (“Combat Application Tourniquet”), known for its effectiveness in emergency situations. Tourniquets are crucial devices used to apply pressure to a limb, restricting or completely stopping blood flow to prevent excessive blood loss following severe trauma.

Emergency Tourniquet Key Features:

  • Robust Construction: The tourniquet features a durable looped band designed to be tightly secured around an injured limb.
  • Efficient Windlass Rod: The windlass rod, a critical component, is twisted to further tighten the band, applying the necessary pressure to constrict blood flow and halt severe bleeding.
  • Temporary Use: Designed for temporary application, the tourniquet should only be used as a last resort in dire emergencies.

Detailed Usage Instructions:

  1. Preparation:
    • Remove any clothing obstructing the injured limb.
    • Ensure the limb is clean and accessible, placing the tourniquet 50 – 75mm above the injury (towards the body, away from the extremity).
    • Apply the tourniquet directly to the skin, as thick clothing can impede its effectiveness.
  2. Application:
    • Fasten the Band: Pull the band tight around the limb and secure it with the Velcro fastener. Avoid wrapping the Velcro over the windlass, as it will be needed in the next step.
    • Twist the Rod: Turn the windlass rod (in either direction) until the bleeding stops. This process will likely cause pain to the patient. Ensure to check for a pulse below the tourniquet. If a pulse is still present or bleeding continues, further tighten the rod.
  3. Securing and Monitoring:
    • Lock the Rod: Secure the windlass rod inside the clip to maintain pressure.
    • Record the Time: Note the exact time the tourniquet was applied. This is crucial information for medical personnel to assess and manage further treatment.

Important Considerations:

  • Proper Training: This tourniquet should only be used by individuals trained in its application to avoid potential complications.
  • Potential Risks: Improper use may result in permanent damage to nerves, blood vessels, and tissue, and could even lead to the loss of a limb.
