SICH-Tourniquet (Strengthened Individual Combat Hybrid Tourniquet) is a strengthened hybrid of two famous tourniquets. It is achieved through using metal strengthening components. Due to aluminum furniture and special patented adhesive tape, integral structure and telescopic platform, this unique tourniquet stood under double pressure and worked successfully even being dirty from bleeding, from any grease or oil, and it didn’t lose its efficiency at extremely low or high temperature (-40 / +50). The tourniquet did not impact soft tissues at its application. Moreover, it can be applied with just one hand.
SICH-TOURNIQUET WILL ALWAYS RESCUE!
MODERN WORLD IS FULL OF DANGERS
Wars, car accidents, terroristic attacks extinguish thousands of lives every day. Wherever it happens, on the battle field or in the course of duties there is not anybody more reliable than you personally, your skills and individual medical kit. Even if your one hand is injured and incapable, SICH-Tourniquet can be applied by one hand just for 8-10 seconds.
And it doesn’t matter, if you are a military man, civil person, tourist, driver or highly qualified medical man. If you have SICH-Tourniquet in your individual medical kit, you will control bleeding for sure and, so, you will get a chance to survive in extreme situations.
Battlefield is not a sterile operation room. It is snow, grass, bog, fuel, water, frost and so on..
But nothing from the mentioned above prevents SICH-Tourniquet to perform its function – to stop bleeding. It is to give a chance to survive.
And to wait for medical men to care of you….in a sterile operation room.
There are things which are beyond your control. But at the same time there is something depending only on you, and it saves lives at the moment of accident and after it:
— fastened safety belt and safety bags,
— SICH-Tourniquet in car individual medical kit.
But in these moments one mistake can cost your life, or your people’s life (wild animals, landslides, rockfalls, avalanches, or just through negligence).
Only serious preparation and something really reliable will keep you from the mistake: team, training and outfit.
SICH-Tourniquet will not treat you in the forest or in the mountains, bit it will stop critical bleeding and will help to wait for evacuation.
Before applying the tourniquet some soft material should be placed between the body and the tourniquet (if it is not available) for minimization of any soft tissues impaction and necrosis;
The tourniquet is fastened till complete stop of bleeding;
The time of tourniquet application should be indicated the note or directly on the tourniquet (if it is provided according to the construction);
Nobody except for the medical staff is allowed to unfasten or to remove the tourniquet.
It is prohibited to place any bandages on the applied tourniquet.
Tourniquet application is not the same as limb loss. Although there is such a risk, if the applied tourniquet is not removed for a long time and blood circulation in the limp is not restored. The period of time allowed for stopping blood circulation in the limb depends on many factors (physiology, temperature of environment, applied force and compression square).
The imaginary “red” indicator of time which should not be exceeded is 2 hours. In most cases the limb is lost not because of the applied tourniquet, but, mainly, projectile traumas followed by major bleeding caused by extensive injuries of soft tissues, great vessels, cartilages and bones. High kinetic energy of bullet slug or a piece of mortar bomb produces missile wounds, and there are secondary wounds of great vessels and limbs breaks.
In case of gunshot wounds it is very important to consider the nature of wounds, if it is а through-and-through or blunt wound. It is conditional upon the fact the outcome bullet hole can be located far from its income hole, so improper diagnostics can be the reason for critical bleeding and death of wounded person at transportation.
Military conflicts in different corners of the world do not disappear and make the power players to search for diplomatic and military solutions. Efficient tools in soldiers’ medical boxes along with weapon and diplomacy strengthen the position of some states at the international political arena. That’s why, the developed countries pay their attention to improvement of available devices for medical pre-hospital emergency. And who knows, maybe, a new revolutionary instrument for saving people’s life is born now in the laboratories of leading institutes.
