New Field-Use Tourniquet Rounds Out Severe-Injury Trauma Kit
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 24, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- Clearwater based First Aid Shoppe, providers of advanced emergency and first aid tools and kits, announced today the update to their ResQue 1st Trauma Kit to include the advanced quick-use SWAT-Tourniquet. First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing, reports that the SWAT-Tourniquet and the military-approved QuikClot Adanced Clotting Sponge are both included in the kit, and that both are designed to stop sever bleeding.
"When someone's bleeding heavily from a wound," says Ms. Loehwing, "you need the right tools. If you're going to save their life the first thing you've got to do is stop the loss of blood. Everything else depends on this."
Ms. Loehwing says both the QuikClot and the SWAT-T Tourniquet help accomplish that goal. Both are battle-tested and proven to save lives.
"QuikClot promotes clotting within minutes from application and is safe, effective and easy to use," she reports. "It's used in Healthcare, Law Enforcement and the Military. QuikClot is the only hemostatic agent recommended by the Department of Defense for all branches of the U.S. Military, designed specifically to handle severe hemorrhage on the battlefield." Ms. Loehwing says QuikClot products are credited with saving thousands of people from traumatic blood loss every year.
"And then there's the SWAT-T Stretch-Wrap-And-Tuck Tourniquet. This is an advanced Tourniquet, extremely easy to use even by untrained people. Plain instructions show you visually how tight to wrap it."

1 Pair of Antiseptic Gloves - for protection of both patient and care giver.
