Tourniquets for Serious Arterial Bleeding

Do the Maths here, and you will see why you need to help yourself, not wait for help to come to you. Arterial bleeding is time critical
Do the maths; You have 5 to 6 litres of blood in the body. The heart beats 70 times a minute and ejects about 70 ml of blood each time it beats.
That equals 4.9 litres of blood circulated by the heart each minute.
So your heart can eject your entire blood volume in minutes from arterial bleeding. Yes, I understand the variables, but the principle remains the same.

This workshop is designed as part of our overall first aid philosophy and fantastic for those that work in high-risk environments. Those who pursue hobbies with a higher degree of risk, and first responders or first-aiders who want to understand this critical skill. If you are in remote environments, travelling on a yacht or working with chainsaws, land care groups or diving and surfing communities. You all have the potential need for this training.

On Enrolment, you will have the option to purchase a discounted military training tourniquet and Israeli emergency bandage for practising and demonstrating the application and use of these products. This allows you to get “hands-on” experience with the equipment before an emergency. You will need a military style tourniquet to demonstrate its application via video submission if you want to receive a certificate.

What will I learn about how to stop the bleeding in serious trauma?

Learn what it really means to stop the bleeding and how vital a first aid skill it is. The Australian Resuscitation Council, the body who sets the standards for first aid training in Australia, has in its latest guidelines said that the control of life-threatening bleeding takes precedence over any other issue in an emergency first aid response.

Our unique approach will show you a plan to develop the confidence to effectively control arterial haemorrhage with a range of new and excitingly effective products like the CAT tourniquet or the emergency or Israeli bandage.

Do the maths, 5 to 6 litres of blood in the body. The heart beats 70 times a minute and ejects about 70 ml of blood. That equals 4.9 litres of blood circulated by the heart each minute. So, your heart can eject your entire blood volume in minutes from arterial bleeding. Yes, I understand the variables, but the principle remains the same. You can read all about this blood loss principle that shows the urgency required to stop the bleed.

Use Specialised Equipment
