For Hemorrhage Control & Pelvic Immobilization
The SAM Junctional Tourniquet (SJT) for hemorrhage control is designed to control bleeding in areas where standard tourniquets would not be effective, such as with IED/Blast injuries or high level amputations. The SJT can be used to control hemorrhage in the inguinal or axilla areas. With these types of injuries, time is of the essence.
The SAM Junctional Tourniquet is compact, easy to use, and quick to apply (typically under 25 seconds). The Target Compression Device (TCD) is placed at or proximal to the injury site and inflated until the bleeding stops. Two TCDs can be used to occlude blood flow bi-laterally if needed.
