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.
You might have noticed our “Tourniquet testing” videos gradually appearing on our YouTube Channel [see below], but the latest addition which has literally just arrived is the RATS – Rapid Application Tourniquet System.
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].
