Description

Tourniquets and Haemostatic Dressings if used correctly are now allowed to be used in first aid after the recommendations of the 2021 ERC first aid changes and the 2017 Tourniquet changes. Catastrophic bleeding is life-threatening and can kill in minutes so having a fast and effective method of stopping bleeding is a must have life skill in the workplace, out and about and at home.

This course covers the main types of commercial tourniquets including RapidStop, CAT, MAT, SOFT T, SAM XT, STAT and Improvised Tourniquets. Haemostatic dressings from Celox, Quick Clot, Axiostat and other Haemostatic dressings and powders are also included. The course also covers the use of trauma dressings including the Air Wrap dressings.
