Delfi´s™ Emergency & Military Tourniquet
Emergency & Military Tourniquet fra Delfi Medical Innovations Inc. er en pneumatisk tourniquet som kombinerer den in-hospitale kvaliteten og effekten av en pneumatisk tourniquet med de pre-hospitale behovene for brukervennlighet og kvalitet, som sikrer effektiv blødningskontroll på en tourniquet-krevende skade. Da tourniquet'en er bredere enn de tradisjonelle taktiske tourniquet'ene og således trenger lavere kompresjonstrykk før den stanser blødningen, gir den mindre smerteopplevelse og mindre sannsynlighet for nerveskade.
Tourniquet'en anbefales av CoTCCC som en effektivt pneumatisk tourniquet som kan erstatte, utfylle eller til bruk over lengre tid, for "medic's" og ROLE I/II/II-team og andre evakueringsplatformer.

Vi sakser litt fra produsenten;
Lightweight and Compact The EMT weighs only 220 grams (7.8 oz) in total, and wraps up to a total packed size of only 5 x 2.75 x 2.5 inches, making it ideal for medical workers on the move.
Single-handed Application Volunteer tested for one-handed application and inflate to occlusion pressure: the average time required was less than 30 seconds after a 5 minute training session. If a medic is trying to maintain pressure on a wound, it can be crucial to apply the tourniquet with only one hand.
Fits Upper & Lower Limbs The EMT can pass over a limb, or wrap around (if the distal end of limb is inaccessible). It can be used on an arm or a leg, with a maximum circumference of 34″ or a minimum circumference of 3″
Reliable Design Sturdy aluminum clamp is lightweight and durable; not easily damaged in the elements.
Rapid Manual Inflation The clamp pinches the bladder at exactly the circumference required, so inflation is only necessary for the used length of bladder. The average tester required less than 30 seconds to apply and inflate.
Optimized Bladder Width A wider bladder width results in the need for lower pressure to fully occlude the limb. In this case, it is also far less painful and will cause less nerve damage.
Hospital Safety & Performance in the Field
Delfi’s unrivalled Emergency & Military Tourniquet is designed to deliver the highest level of tourniquet safety with durable portability. In ground-based tactical situations and first response trauma incidents, the EMT is used as a life-saving haemorrhage control device.
Based on over 40 years of Delfi’s world leading tourniquet technology, the EMT’s wide bladder pneumatic design is proven to completely stop arterial blood-flow on both upper and lower limbs, unlike narrow tourniquets which are often ineffective no matter how tightly they are applied, potentially causing further injury to the limb.
The EMT is fast and simple to self-apply, and requires minimal training, and has been recommended for medics and medic vehicles by the US Army Institute for Surgical Research.
An independent assessment completed by the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) found the EMT to be effective in 100% of all trials. In addition, the EMT was found to be “wider and thus significantly less painful than any device tested and is much less likely to induce nerve damage”, compared to either of the strap tourniquets (SOFTT and CAT).
