Make the Boston bombing anniversary your tourniquet and trauma kit training reminder
Do you carry a tourniquet? How about Hemostatic Combat Gauze (a.k.a. QuikClot)? What about an Emergency Trauma Wound Dressing (a.k.a. Israeli Bandage). Have you recently refreshed your skills on their proper application? If your answer to those questions is yes, then I applaud you. I hope you’ve also checked to ensure that your partner, your shift supervisor, and even your family members are squared away too.
If your answer to any/all of the above is negative, this tip is especially for you.
