Quick – take the picture will ya!
Yearly tourniquet competency – check!
Few notes for those that want to get/use one.
- We all have bigger clothes (esp in the winter time). Get the larger width and size tourniquet.
- Deploy and activate your equipment using your non dominate hand. It is likely that your primary hand maybe occupied or injured.
- Tighten ALL the way down. And then turn until the bleeding stops.
- Most importantly, train with your equipment…esp immediate critical intervention stuff.
Hope you never have to use this on anyone else or yourself.
