(Health-NewsWire.Net, April 23, 2015 ) Clearwater, Florida -- First Aid Shoppe, suppliers of high-quality first aid and emergency care products, reports the addition of the advanced designed SWAT-Tourniquet, an effective, quick-use, multipurpose dressing, to their top-tier trauma kit. "Customers were asking for this," says First Aid Shoppe COO, Anna Loehwing. "Our kits were already in high demand, but a kit with an easy-use, fast, effective tourniquet that can be applied in the field was being demanded. We've got that now and customers are very happy."
Ms. Loehwing reports that the SWAT-Tourniquet is filling that demand. She says SWAT is an acronym for what the tourniquet does, while at the same time bringing to mind a more popular acronym for police special units, namely military and civilian Special Weapons And Tactics teams. "SWAT, for our use, stands for Stretch, Wrap And Tuck," says Ms. Loehwing. "Calling to mind the military and civilian units it was specialized for is especially appropriate. SWAT teams operate in situations where there is a high incidence of injuries involving bleeding. Deep penetrating trauma, gashes and deep cuts are, unfortunately, part of the risks. As it turns out most preventable deaths in those extreme operational environments are preventable by stopping blood loss. Our SWAT Tourniquet is optimized for this, and is an industry leader for stopping bleeding at the extremities."
The SWAT-Tourniquet is used by civilian and military special units alike.
"The SWAT-Tourniquet gives up a quick, easy-to-use way to control extreme bleeding from the major arteries," says Ms. Loehwing. "Because of its design it can be applied high into the groin and armpit areas, stopping femoral and humeral arterial bleeding. SWAT can be placed much higher than other tourniquets. The ease of application makes it a great asset in a life-or-death emergency where every second counts. Anyone can effectively apply it quickly and properly with little to no training."
The ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet comes with a pair of antiseptic gloves, four (4) antiseptic wipes for wound cleaning and protection, a QuikClot Advanced Clotting Sponge, a sterile gauze pad, one roll of gauze bandage approximately 4 yards long, and a roll of Medical Tape for holding dressings in place. Contents come in a Kit Bag, with easy-open zipper and heavy-duty hook that locks for secure storage.
The ResQue 1st Trauma Kit With SWAT-Tourniquet is available on Amazon and has both a satisfaction and a money back guarantee.
