Tourniquets

The range of tourniquets available at SP Services have been specifically designed for use within a number of different combat scenarios, all of which are lightweight, cost-effective, easily stored and accommodate a number of different needs.

Tourniquets have many uses, including being used to gain IV access for intravenous fluids or medication, these are commonly known as ‘quick release tourniquets’.

To gain IV access a tourniquet will be applied just above the area of cannulation and this engorges the veins to the top of the skin to make it much easier to see and feel for the insertion of a cannula, different types include disposable and reusable tourniquets.

Another type of tourniquet is for the control of catastrophic bleeding from major trauma injuries to limbs and these are generally known as CAT tourniquets.

CAT tourniquets are used by putting the device above the injured site, the device is then tightened using the windlass rod and it is then secured in place using the rod locking clip. The CAT tourniquet is used when someone has experienced a major trauma injury or an arterial bleed. A CAT tourniquet applies large amounts of pressure to stem the blood loss.
