Checking out the @snakestaffsystems ETQ/ETQ Wide today on #medicalmonday. Very excited about these. I appreciate that someone has put out an easy to carry tourniquet that seems like it will actually work well. Although, it looks like it was designed for #lawenforcement and #tactical people in mind, hopefully it encourages the general population to carry a TQ now that there is one you don’t even notice on you (I’m intentionally claiming ignorance about another compact TQ that shall not be named). Also, for the civilians, get you some training. First aid/CPR/AED takes a day and TQs are now standard for stopping bleeding. At the very least, do a stop the bleed course.

ARTOS also will cover tourniquets in our May 20-21 wilderness first aid course. Sign up now!
