BLUF: Preventing massive blood loss is the number one life saving measure during a trauma incident.
Anybody can be exposed to trauma incidents. Vehicle accidents, sporting mishaps, workplace accidents, violent attacks, and natural disasters are all common mechanism which can lead to traumatic injuries resulting in massive blood loss. Having a tourniquet available, and knowing how to properly apply it could save your own life, or the life of a loved one.
The SOF® Tourniquet Gen 4 is built upon its original ruggedness and durability, which was the result of an exhaustive 24-month research initiative compiling end-user research and laboratory studies. The tourniquet is comprised of high-strength, lightweight alloy components. Its design allows the tourniquet to slide over a limb or, if the limb is trapped, the tourniquet can be rapidly disconnected and reconnected around the limb without rethreading the strap. With one application method for both the arm and the leg, the Gen 4 is the easiest tourniquet to operate under stress, which can lead to reduced levels of blood loss and ultimately better quality patient care.
The Gen 4 still maintains its true 1.5" tourniquet strap, providing a wider compression pattern than most standard tourniquets or tourniquets with a 1" constricting band moving through a 1.5" sleeve. The wider compression pattern results in additional arterial compression and increased patient comfort.
Additionally, each tourniquet is shipped with two UV-resistant black rubber bands for mounting to your individual equipment..... 👈🏽= money😉
The SOF® Tourniquet Gen 4 is one of only two windlass tourniquets approved for use by the Department of Defense, one of only two windlass tourniquets approved for use by the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, and the tourniquet of choice for the American Red Cross. It is used by everyone from elite military operators around the world to the largest police departments in the country to fire and EMS paramedics on the streets to civilians in everyday public places just trying to be prepared.
