(Health-NewsWire.Net, February 06, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- "We've had some of the best, most comprehensive emergency first aid kits in the business for some time," says First Aid & Safety COO, Anna Loehwing. "Now we've taken one of our best-sellers and added the amazing SWAT-Tourniquet." The SWAT in SWAT Tourniquet stands for Stretch, Wrap And Tuck. It is a multipurpose dressing designed to be quickly applied to control and stop extremity bleeding. Can be applied higher into the groin (femoral) and armpit (humeral) area than other tourniquets. Its ease of use allows it to be applied effectively in seconds with little to no training.
"In this kit we already had the incredible QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, an emergency clotting sponge that has been battle tested and approved by the Department of Defense. Now, with the combination of the QuikClot sponge for localized bleeding, and the SWAT-Tourniquet for major extremity bleeding, our emergency first aid kit has everything you need to handle an emergency situation stat."
In addition to the SWAT-Tourniquet and the QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, the Auto Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet by First Aid & Safety includes a pair of antiseptic gloves for the safety of the emergency caregiver; four (4) antiseptic wipes to clean and protect wounds; a large, sterile gauze pad (5 in x 9 in); a roll of gauze bandage wrap four (4) yards long; and a roll of medical tape for holding dressings in place. The contents of the kit come in a heavy-duty kit bag, with an easy-open zipper and a heavy-duty locking hook for secure storage.
"Everyone should have one of these bags on hand," says Ms. Loehwing. "They're easy to keep handy, and when you need it you just might save a life. Even your own."
The Auto Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is now available on Amazon.
