New Nylon Bag For Emergency Kit Adds Durability
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 16, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- "We've given some extra style, durability and compactness to our top emergency first aid kit," says First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing. "It's now a bright, easy-to-see blue with black trim, sturdy Nylon, an easy-open zipper and heavy-duty locking hook for secure storage where you need it."
The ResQue1st Trauma & Auto Emergency First Aid Kit with QuikClot Blood Clotting Bandage & SWAT-T Tourniquet is a high-trauma severe-injury bleeding emergency first aid kit that includes two key items for stopping severe blood loss: the SWAT (Stretch Wrap And Tuck) quick-use tourniquet, for stoppage of arterial (femoral and humeral) bleeding; and the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, for promoting fast clotting at the site of the wound. The new kit bag is made of sturdy nylon with an easy-open no-snag zipper, with a sturdy plastic hook. The dimensions make it easy to store, at 7.5 inches by 3 inches by 5 inches in size. Total kit weight is less than one pound (10 ounces).
"This kit is light and easy to keep on hand," says Ms. Loehwing. "It fits easily in a drawer, or in your camping gear or backpack or just about anywhere. We see a lot of outdoorsmen picking these up. It's the ultimate emergency first aid kit for real injuries. We're not talking cuts or bruises -- I'm talking an accident or injury with serious blood loss, where a life is on the line." The SWAT-Tourniquet and QuikClot Sponge are designed to stop major bleeding long enough to allow a victim to be transported, or to survive until help can arrive. The SWAT-Tourniquet fits high into either the armpit or groin area and is easy and quick to apply. The QuikClot Sponge is applied directly to the site of the wound and begins to clot the injury at the moment of application.
"This kit contains what you need to stop bleeding fast," says Ms. Loehwing. "QuikClot is the same revolutionary Advanced Blood Clotting Product now used by all branches of the Armed Forces. Now with the new bag it's even easier to store or hang where needed, so you're ready if catastrophe strikes."
The ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is available on Amazon.
