Portable Severe-Injury Trauma Kit Recommended By Extreme Sports Enthusiasts
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 02, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- First Aid Shoppe, makers of first aid and extreme injury products, has announced that their ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet advanced kit is being embraced by extreme sports enthusiasts.
"We're hearing from the pros that this kit is the item they've been needing," says First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing. "If you're involved with any sort of high-risk activity, especially ones where you might be on your own or with a small group, no immediate medical help to hand, you need to be able to take care of yourself. To handle a serious injury until help can arrive. This kit is meant to give you the ability to do exactly that."
According to Ms. Loehwing the ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is a specialized kit intended to provide a way to respond to and treat serious bleeding and life-threatening injuries at the scene. The purpose is to provide stabilizing treatment for the victim until help can be sought or until help arrives.
"Once you've handled breathing and hear beat," says Ms. Loehwing, "CPR, essentially, blood loss becomes your biggest concern. Our kit is designed to handle extreme blood loss. You can set bones, other things can be handled later, but bleeding needs to be handled now. To do that we include two of the industry's leading products, both of which are designed to handle specific types of severe bleeding." According to Ms. Loehwing these items are the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, and the SWAT-Tourniquet. She says the QuikClot Sponge is an advanced clot-inducing sponge that has been approved by the military and is employed by all four branches. It is an advanced hemostatic (clotting) agent that stops bleeding at the point of application. The SWAT (Stretch Wrap And Tuck) Tourniquet is a dam against arterial bleeding. It can be placed high in the groin or armpit areas.
"These two items will handle just about any major bleeding," says Ms. Loehwing. "The kit is easy to carry, which means it's easy to take and have with you when you're out having fun. I recommend it to anyone who's out and engaged in extreme activities."
The ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is available on Amazon.
