Portable First Aid Kit Adds Advanced Quick-Use Tourniquet
(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 02, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- Anna Loehwing, COO of First Aide Shoppe, makers of advanced first aid kits and first aid products, announced the addition of the SWAT-Tourniquet, a unique multipurpose dressing designed for quick use in the field, to their top-tier advanced trauma kit. Ms. Loehwing said SWAT is an acronym for Stretch, Wrap And Tuck.
"That's the technical name," said Ms. Loehwing, "but the similarity with the SWAT name we know for police forces is intentional. This is a serious tourniquet and we wanted it to invoke the communities for which it was developed -- the one we're all familiar with, the military and civilian Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) teams. These highly-trained teams operate in situations that have a very high incidence of severe trauma. Most (two-thirds) of these traumatic injuries can be handled on the scene with the right equipment. Preventable deaths in the operational environment result from extremity bleeding, and with the SWAT-Tourniquet that can be controlled. SWAT acts to stop that bleeding fast and save lives."
Ms. Loehwing reports that the SWAT-Tourniquet is included in the First Aid Shoppe. This is First Aid Shoppe's top-tier trauma kit and also includes a pair of antiseptic gloves, four (4) antiseptic wipes, the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, a sterile gauze pad, a roll of gauze bandage, a roll of extra-strength medical tape and a sturdy kit bag for holding all items.
"We've made the bag tough, small and easy to store," says Ms. Loehwing. "By having one of these kits on hand in an emergency can save your life or someone else's. Be prepared. This kit will cover the most serious injuries, and it's easy to have in the car, or in your gear if you're climbing mountains, riding a bike, camping. In life dangers can present themselves at any moment. Keeping one of these kits on hand gives you a way to rapidly help when a severe injury occurs. Medical personnel are usually going to be at least a few minutes away sometimes much longer than that, if you're out in the woods or somewhere further from civilization. This kit gives you a way to stabilize the victim, fast, and survive until help arrives."
The First Aid Shoppe ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is now available on Amazon with a money-back guarantee.
