SWAT "T" Tourniquet
TQ, Pressure Dressing, Elastic Bandage

The SWAT-Tourniquet is a unique, latex-free, multipurpose  dressing/device...

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.

Other tourniquets are a one-use device. As we know the operational environment requires personnel and equipment to be both durable and versatile.

Tourniquet

A tourniquet is to be applied when bleeding is severe (arterial) and loss of life is of greatest concern. In most patients tourniquets have proven to be safe for a minimum of two hours. When used properly all tourniquets may cause loss of limb. This is a necessary risk, to bring our patients home at the end of the day.
 
Pressure Dressing

The SWAT-T™ can and should be used as a pressure dressing. When hemorrhage is controlled or for venous and capillary oozing. Place your sterile dressing (or standard gauze / hemostatic dressing) then wrap the SWAT-T™ around the area of injury.

You can then tuck or tape the end, which will maintain pressure on the wound (preventing further contamination and re-bleeding).

If the endpoints are met on the dressing you may have a tourniquet

and should check for good blood return in the extremity (pulse and capillary refill), or you risk the complications associated with all tourniquets.

Pressure dressings should be left in place until definitive wound management can be accomplished.
 

Elastic Bandage

The SWAT-T™ can and should be used as an elastic bandage. Use the dressing to hold ice near sprains and strains, stabilize a twisted knee/ankle, or to sling a shoulder. The dressing can also be used to loosely apply pressure across the chest or abdomen. This can be to help close and protect wounds, contain abdominal contents in evisceration, or to assist in stabilization of the pelvis in blunt pelvic trauma. The SWAT-T™ can be used to splint an extremity to the body, other leg, or to a rigid object for immobilization.
Markings

The ovals = circles, rectangle = squares are symbols on the device. They symbolize a 200% strain on the device and enough for arterial occlusion. This is an additional tool to prevent the non-medic type from putting on a tourniquet when they are trying to apply it as a pressure dressing. The back of the label is a treatment card that also tells users to check the distal pulse after application of it as a pressure dressing.

Durability and Reliability

The SWAT "T" Tourniquet has been tested in bloody, sandy, dirty, wet (etc), conditions. The elastomer was developed to adhere well to itself and lessen slippage.  Even with some movement, the SWAT-T tourniquet will maintain itself as a TQ.  It is also reusable unless soiled or damaged.  The testing done on this device showed no significant change in the device with 5000 pulls to a force much greater than needed to make a tourniquet.

If someone used it to ice a knee, wrap and ankle and later wanted to use it for a tourniquet/pressure dressing there should be no problem in the device’s performance.

 

NOTE:  It has been found that the device should be kept in its packaging to prevent nicks and scrapes that could cause the device to tear.
