Code 1 Supply's tourniquet is a true one-handed tourniquet proven to be 100% effective by the FDA and a registered medical device. Tests proved that this tourniquet completely occluded blood flow of an extremity in the event of a traumatic wound with significant hemorrhage.
The tourniquet utilizes a durable windlass system with a free-moving internal band providing true circumferential pressure to the extremity. Once adequately tightened, bleeding will cease and the windlass is locked into place. A hook and loop windlass retention strap is then applied, securing the windlass to maintain pressure during casualty evacuation. The unique dual securing system avoids the use of screws and clips which can become difficult to operate under survival stress or where fine motor skills are compromised.
• A true 1 ½” constricting band for increased constricting pressure and patient comfort.
• Featuring a red elliptical tip to assist user in locating and threading during application.
• Reinforced windlass clip & highly visible security tab includes a writeable area to record the time of application.
• Proven to be 100% effective in occluding blood flow in both upper & lower extremities by the U.S. Army’s Institute of Surgical Research.
