A MULTI-FUNCTION TRAUMA CARE DEVICE.
MULTIPLE DOCUMENTED SAVES!
The SWAT-T will treat a variety of injuries, minor to life-threatening. The SWAT-T™ is being carried by Military (Conventional and Special Operations medical and non-medical personnel), EMS, Law Enforcement Officers, Contractors, Federal Agents, and prepared citizens (individually or as part of active shooter kits). Carried by many as a pressure dressing, all-purpose wrap, primary and/or back-up tourniquet.
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.
SWAT-T™ has been heavily researched and it is field proven.
EASY TO USE
Simple application method. Effectively apply in seconds with little to no prior training.
Effective for self-application. Effective even in wet/bloody conditions.
Successes in pediatrics, adults and canine after other tourniquets failed.
SWAT-T™ is 1/3 of the cost of other market leading tourniquets.
Higher axillary and groin applications!
Wider = Safer - Better occlusion at lower pressures!
High axillary, Pediatric, and K9 saves after strap/windlass failures!
FOR RESCUE ORANGE
Bright color makes the SWAT-T easier to identify, and therefore safer.
USE AS TOURNIQUET
When bleeding is severe (arterial) and loss of life is of greatest concern.
Stretch for tourniquet-place above the wound (between wound and heart). Wrap tightly, ensuring ovals/rectangles change to circle/squares. And Tuck. (Pre-plan the tuck for best results)
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.
USE AS PRESSURE DRESSING
When hemorrhage is controlled or for venous and capillary oozing.
Wrap the SWAT-T™ over hemostatic agent or sterile dressing then tuck or tape the end to maintain pressure, 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.
USE AS ELASTIC BANDAGE
When you need to hold ice near sprains and strains, stabilize a twisted knee/ankle, sling a shoulder, among hundreds of other applications.
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.
What research tested and field proven arterial tourniquet has also been used to:
sling a shoulder, splint a leg fracture, occlude an axillary sucking chest wound, splint a pelvic injury, function as an elastic wrap and pressure dressing?
Hint 1: It is also the same multifunction trauma care device that has been used to create a snare, create a hawaiian sling, patch a kayak, mend a ski boot binding, patch a leaking fire hose on a fire scene, and mend a boot (sole separating on rugged hike).
Hint 2: It is also the same low cost and light weight device that has saved pediatric, adult, and canine patients after failures of other leading commercial tourniquets.
