The SWAT Tourniquet is a unique and versatile dressing. Its name provides a description for using Stretch, Wrap and Tuck, but also the communities for which it was developed – military and civilian special weapons and tactical teams. These teams work in an environment that has a high incidence of trauma, and most (two-thirds) of avoidable deaths in the operating environment are from extremity bleeding. The SWAT tourniquet allows faster control of extremity bleeding and allows higher application in the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its easy application is one of its biggest benefits, individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no previous training. At a third of the cost and weight of other combat tourniquets, this tourniquet should find its way forward with every tactical operator. The SWAT-T was developed by a former operator/medic with 14 years experience in operational medicine – former USAF pararescue journman (para-jumper or PJ), contractor DoJ/FBI SWAT operations, National Registry paramedics and emergency medicine t. Minimum recommended operating temperature: -53°C maximum recommended operating temperature. 82°C Preferred long-term storage conditions, cool and dry.
