First Aid Kit Designed Specifically For Outdoorsmen Now Available
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 25, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- First Aid & Safety, a Clearwater based provider of high-end emergency-use first aid kits and equipment, reports the addition of their latest trauma kit to their lineup. The kit is designed specifically with outdoorsmen in mind, says First Aid & Safety COO, Anna Loehwing. Ms. Loehwing says the kit was put together for people who engage in potentially dangerous activities, and especially activities that take them far from medical facilities, such as hikers, campers, boaters, climbers and extreme sports enthusiasts.
"We kept the kit compact," says Ms. Loehwing. "And we kept it packed. This is our most advanced trauma kit, and it's got exactly what you need to keep someone alive on the scene, or until they can be transported or during transport. Bleeding is the biggest thing to handle with extreme injury and that's exactly what our kit targets. Bones can be set, concussions treated later. Cuts and bruises can be band-aided or bandaged. With most anything else you've got time for treatment. With bleeding, especially bad bleeding, you simply have no time. You've got to stop it and you've got to stop it fast. Only by doing that can you save a life. Other treatment can come later."
The Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet by First Aid & Safety contains items specifically for this purpose. The QuikClot Advanced Clotting sponge is a high-trauma hemostatic agent (stops bleeding) approved for use by the military and designed to clot major bleeding at the injury. The SWAT-Tourniquet is a quick-use tourniquet made to halt arterial bleeding, and is made to be applied high in the armpit or groin area. With these two options most all forms of bleeding can be stopped, allowing time for transport to or arrival of professional medical personnel.
"You simply need one of these if you're far from help and putting yourself in risky situations," says Ms. Loehwing. "It's easy to keep one on hand, and it could save your life or another's."
The Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is available on Amazon.
