Tourniquets & Tourniquet Holders
A tourniquet is an essential tool that’s designed to restrict and control the flow of blood to the extremities and prevent severe blood loss when used properly. This device consists of a strap with a buckle and a long skinny handle (also known as a windlass) for tightening. This especially comes in handy when responding to a car accident, treating gunshot wounds, deep cuts, and other emergencies where hemorrhaging is more likely.
Before using this device, it’s important to first find the source of the bleeding and apply direct pressure to the wound. If this fails to stop the bleeding, you will then need to employ a tourniquet. Please note that tourniquets are meant for limb injuries only. They cannot be used on the head or torso. Also, keep in mind that you understand how to apply a tourniquet before attempting to use one as it requires some level of basic medical training.
Since timing is of the essence when there’s a hemorrhaging patient, keeping a tourniquet close to you can mean the difference between life and death. That’s why at Galls, we carry a large selection of tourniquets and tourniquet holders to speed the process along. Choose from some of the top-selling brands we carry including North American Rescue, Chinook Medical, Tactical Medical Solutions and more.
