Review: Tourniquet Trauma Kit By Lia Medical

This is a great set to add to an additional first aid kit. My Husband and I are both Medics and we like the idea of being able to have a tourniquet and trauma dressing in our emergency kits and range bag for our personal use away from work should the need ever arise.

This kit comes with a CAT tourniquet, an Israeli trauma dressing and an emergency reflective blanket. All three items come in a small zippered plastic bag (similar to a heavy duty ziplock) which is perfect to throw in an existing first aid/emergency kit.

Obviously we don’t recommend using this unless you are trained in the use of tourniquets but that being said this is a very nice quality kit. We are very happy with it.
