KNOWLEDGE IS POWERFUL: The Northern Colorado IMRG Chapter has had a few discussions at meetings and questions asked about tourniquets. Many of us carry them on our motorcycle. Having it is one thing, but being prepared on how to use it can save time and possibly a life. Here is an instructional video on how to use one. It shows two handed version and single handed version as well. Tourniquets are no longer just a last resort. If you feel like the amount of blood is pouring or spurting out is substantial, then use it. The point of the tourniquet is to cut off blood flow before it leaks out of the wound, BUYING TIME. A tourniquet itself DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM, it just delays it. Watch the video below and practice.
