Product Description

The SWAT-Tourniquet is a unique and multipurpose dressing. Its name provides a description for usage Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck, but also the communities for whom it was developed - military and civilian Special Weapons and Tactics teams. These teams operate in an environment that has a high incidence of penetrating trauma, and most (two-thirds) of preventable deaths in the operational environment are from extremity bleeding. The SWAT-Tourniquet allows a more rapid means to control extremity bleeding and allows application higher into the groin and axilla than other tourniquets. Its ease of application is one of its greatest benefits; individuals can effectively apply it in seconds with little to no prior training. At a third of the cost and weight of other combat used 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 Journeyman (Para-Jumper or PJ)), Contractor DoJ/FBI SWAT Operations, National Registry Paramedic, and Emergency Medicine Physician. Minimum recommended operating temp. -65 Degree F (-53 Degree C) Maximum recommended operating temp. 180 Degree F (82 Degree C) Preferred long-term storage conditions cool and dry environment.

There seems to be a common reoccurring theme among products, especially like these, that, while common sense in the directions on how to apply... still somehow require a skill set to use properly. I've seen plenty of people apply a cat-t and soft-t that wouldn't have stopped a papercut from bleeding. Putting it on and twisting is HOW you make it tight. However, that doesn't mean that putting it on and twisting... means that it's tight. Just like this one. Wrapping it around a limb, is how you apply it. It actually has a diagram on it, that when you make the ovals/rectangles into squares/circles on it, so you know that you're stretching it tight enough. But again.... somehow something get's lost in translation. The ability for the human element to mess something up, is always prevailing. I've put a cat-t and soft-t onto myself, and tightened it down until I couldn't twist the rod anymore. That hurts, but I can do it. These, I can't get more than 3/4s wrapped (on my thigh) before the pressure is so great I feel like I'm about to crack my femur, or get a hernia. I'm not fat, but I'm 6' 220, my thighs aren't exactly slim.

pros: Versus the cat and sof-ts, *these are VERY lightweight, ridiculously so. *Can get just as tight, and in my opinion, tighter. *Requires less fine motorskills, so CAN be faster to apply when you're nervous, vs fumbling with velcro and tabs. *This has no moving parts. *And, can be applied one handed proficiently,- you wrap it around with no pressure, and then start stretching it, and it will stick to itself, and hold- start wrapping tighter. *Very unlike cat's and soft-t's, where you're a dumb*ss if you never took it out of it's wrapping, because they require preparation to be applied. These, do not.

So you are giving this product a single star because it doesn't hold ice packs in place? That is something that it is not even designed to do. What is your medical cert? It sounds as though you might benefit from some medical training. Even with "real tourniquets (i.e. CAT and SOF tourniquets)," after a single real-time application they should be tossed. For us, after using a tourniquet during training exercises, it will be taken out of circulation for out in the field. This product works, same with ratchet straps, bungie cords, and strips of cloth, etc. You do not need to buy a REAL tourniquet for $25, you have the ability to make you own as well. This product is great, compact, lightweight, and is able to go high in the armpit and thigh regions, where bullet holes like to hide. Trauma surgeons recommend and use this product. Oh, and as mentioned before, all tourniquets have expiration dates on them. Materials do degrade over time, and this way, fire stations, military units, and other first responder programs are able to justify purchasing more, because you can never have too much gear.

Con: A label that is very difficult to remove was placed over the use instructions on the back of the package.

I have a CAT tourniquet but picked up one of these because I found I couldn't always get it around my arm fast enough (you train with your equipment right?). For me, throwing one of those around my arm is much faster and could achieve the same result as a CAT. Also the SWAT-T is roughly the size and weight of a deck of cards.

Pair that with the versatility -- can be used to make a compression bandage with a gauze pad, a sling, assist with splints, and so on. You can't go wrong.

It's an elastic rubber band that can be tightened to stop bleeding. Simple and mostly effective. Might not be long enough for someone who is either very fat or very muscular, especially on the thigh. It's small and light.
The 1 and 2 star reviews are incredibly rediculous. It can't hold an ice pack, but does work as a tourniquet? Well no duh! It's a tourniquet, not an ice pack holder. It's not meant to hold an ice pack.
As for the expiration date, all medical devices and appliances have an expiration date. Yes that means CAT-Ts and everything else too. Even simple cloth bandages have expiration dates.

UPDATE after doing a little more research and some learning.
There is a HUGE negative for this product though. It can apply too much pressure and cause more limb damage. In comparisonn to losing your life though, I'd say it might be a fair trade... BUT I'd rather use something liek a Soft-t or Cat-T even because of the greater control. However if money is an issue, then this is better than nothing, and I'd rather lose an additional six inches of my leg than my life. But again, if you can get a better option do so.
Fortunately though, unless you're out in the boonies, EMS is not that far out so you'll likely be in a hospital before any permanent nerve damage can occur. If out hiking, or if you live in the country where it might take a half hour for an ambulance to show up, you'd be much better served with a better product.
This is an ok solution for a cash strapped PD that has the option of these or essentially nothing.
