Why would I want a tourniquet in my leash?
Having a tourniquet integrated in your leash enables you to quickly mitigate extremity life threatening bleeding on yourself or others.
Why using the leash cord is bad?
- Has no mechanical advantage for tightening.
- Cannot be secured in place.
- The narrow cord can cause additional tissue and nerve damage.
How quickly can a person bleed to death?
A person can bleed to death in as little as 3 minutes.
How long can a tourniquet be worn?
A tourniquet can be worn for roughly 3 hours, with 2 hours being the optimum time to not exceed.
What is the likelihood of complications from using a tourniquet?
Tourniquets that have been properly applied and have been worn within the range of 1-3 hours have a low risk of complications.
If I use a tourniquet won’t I lose my arm or leg?
Not necessarily, if you do lose a limb it is likely that you would have lost the limb due to the trauma that caused the injury, and not because you applied a tourniquet. What the tourniquet does is ensure you won’t die from blood loss caused by the trauma.
When should I apply a tourniquet?
A tourniquet should only be applied for life-threatening bleeding.
What about tourniquets for non-surfers?
Our Amphibious Tourniquet was specifically designed for non-surfers, and is ideal for all other water sports, beach activities, and almost any adventure or profession. It can be worn on the body, or equipment with unparalleled convenience and comfort.
