The SWAT-Tourniquet™ is a unique and multipurpose dressing. Its name provides a description for usage: Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck, but also the communities for whom it was developed – military and civilian Special Weapons and Tactics teams. These teams operate in an environment that has a high incidence of penetrating trauma, and most (two-thirds) of preventable deaths in the operational environment are from extremity bleeding.
SWAT-Tourniquet™ is an efficient tool to control extremity bleeding. It can be applied in limbs, groin, armpits and even in the neck. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits: it can be effectively applied in seconds with little or no prior training. Its light weight and small size makes this tourniquet essential in battlefield as well as in any emergency situation.
The SWAT-Tourniquet™ allows a more rapid means to control extremity bleeding and allows application higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits; individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no prior training. At a third of the cost and weight of other combat used tourniquets, this tourniquet should find its way forward with every tactical operator.
