I am attempting to write a review article on tourniquets. It will review some history from previous engagements with indications, types used and salvages. I am looking for more up to date info and types used by active duty personnel. I have had a few contacts that are active duty but the numbers are small of tourniquets used. I know there is a new one being field tested right now at Ft. Bragg and overseas: a one handed 'slip-stop and lock' variety as we call them. My review article is for the tactical EMS crowd where there is some use but a lot less than what some of you have seen or done. Any responses are appreciated especially if you have pics or info on the tourniquets used.
Thanks

I have some new ones that I haven't had a chance to use yet. They are called "Tourniquet, Ratchet, NSW". When I go back out, I'll take a couple of pics for you. I've played with it some, and it looks like it will work. Don't know for sure until I get a patient and they consider bad form to create your own patients, so i'll have to wait.

The cravat and stick works well, as I'm sure some of the FOGs will attest to.

I'd be glad to help anyway I can with the study.

You have a Harsey Custom A-F, a Glock, a Tourniquet, and a country full of FARC and ELN, and you can't create your own patients?

Are you the same NDD I used to know?

Get on in there and mix it up, Doc!
