LUVERNE, AL –-(Ammoland.com)- “Without a doubt, tourniquets were a difference maker and saved lives.” said Dr. Joseph Blansfield, Trauma Program Manager, Boston Medical Center days after the Boston Terrorist Attack.

Dr. Blansfield went on to say, “Tourniquets that were applied both in the field, on the scene…as well as applied either en route, or on arrival at any of the trauma centers…was really a direct benefit from the experiences that were appreciated in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

If you are even involved in a traumatic injury situation, you will want to do something. The big question is will you have able to doing anything effective to aid the victim. Your ability will be based upon your training, experience, and available gear. Rather than waste precious seconds improvising, why not have the gear with you, ready to go?

A large pack, filled with trauma gear is naturally preferable, but these aren’t likely to be immediately available when you need them. The Pocket Life-Saver EDC Med Kit is designed to be a compact, easy to carry, stop-gap trauma kit to immediately deal with a life threatening injuries while awaiting the arrival of professional medical personnel.

Pocket Life-Saver Contents:

  • 1- TK 4L ready-made Tourniquet control Major Bleeding
  • 1- Package of Medical Gauze Wound Care
  • 1- NPA (nasopharyngeal airway) Open Airway for Unconscious Patient

Phl: You are dangerously under-educated and need to upgrade your skill set. https://themobiletrainingteam.com/Blog.html


Only apply a Tourniquet if direct or indirect pressure does NOT stop or slow the bleeding.
You can cause more damage by applying a Tourniquet.
If you must, use your belt.
