Tourniquet testing by Lazarus Training- the RATS

The use of tourniquets in pre-hospital care is now widely accepted, at least it is within “sensible” circles.

The use of tourniquets is a staple part of many of our first aid courses [such as our FPOS I and media first aid training] and we therefore take quite an interest in new products hitting the market. As we become aware of new models we like to put them thorough a series of tests to check the ease of use and ease of training.

We will be uploading a product review and tourniquet test in the next few days, so keep checking here or subscribe to our YouTube Channel [you can do this by clicking here].

Lazarus Training has been running medical training for police firearms teams for some time now, but we are delighted to announce that we have recently entered an agreement with the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care.

Our D13 medical training [both enhanced and standard level] courses are now licensed by the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care of the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

Our training has always been known for its practical, hands on approach, but now successful completion leads to both a Lazarus and Faculty certificates.

Each delegate received a Faculty authored course manual.
