Under pressure / stopping the bleeding

Under pressure
Under pressure

When a victim is suffering a severe blood loss from an open injury, it is important to continually apply pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding, as losing 20% of lood in the body would put his/her life in danger.

Most injures patients have difficultly applying pressure on their own wounds to stop the bleeding. However this concept utilizes inflation to create the pressure needed to prevent further blood loss, thus allowing the patients to stop the bleeding without the help of others. This is a disposable product, must be disposed after use.
