A tourniquet is a very effective treatment for bleeding wounds in the field. We recommend you have one in every first aid kit and get trained on how to use it.
Stopping a heavy bleed is a high survival priority. Most bleed stops require pressure and a tourniquet is very effective at applying intense pressure. Stop severe bleeds to save lives.
A tourniquet is effective for severe bleeding situations when you need to stop the bleeding to save a life for bleed injuries in the field. They apply so much pressure to a body limb that fluid movement is stopped. You can lose a limb if you use a tourniquet so we strongly recommend getting trained to know when and how to use one.
Every first aid kit should have one for serious cuts and trauma situations.
