Roadside bombs have become all too common in our fight against terror. Uncontrolled bleeding, already the main cause of death in combat, has become an even more pressing danger.
Combat Medical Systems has developed this atypical tourniquet to help treat as many soldiers & civilians as possible & lower the rate of fatality from roadside or terrorist bombings. This tourniquet acts like a vise to stem the bleeding & can be implemented in seconds.
This tourniquet just received FDA approval to treat wounds of this type. It has already been successfully tested in Afghanistan & domestically.
