Product Description

SWAT-Tourniquet™ - Our Product

Background: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. The SWAT-T™ is being marketed and distributed by TEMS Solutions, LLC and its affiliates.

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.

SWAT Tourniquet Military Application

Simulated Graphic Event. Working in Tactical Gloves. This video shows some components of TCCC and casualty management using the SWAT-T (as a tourniquet, and separately as a pressure dressing - applied over hemostatic agent). Pressure Dressings may be applied after tourniquet placement - which may allow tourniquet to be taken down by a medic (Trial Tourniquet), or a pressure dressing may be placed primarily for less severe bleeding (venous/small vessel). Wound Packing may be necessary to help control bleeding. Can be done with standard gauze or more preferred a hemostatic agent - such as Combat Gauze depicted in the video.
