Warning Tourniquet / Medical & Injury warning

Warning Tourniquet
Warning Tourniquet

Existing tourniquets emphasize good regulation but ignore the time limit of hemostasis. Prolonged hemostasis can severely damage the tissue. In large-scale accidents, the tourniquet has a timing function. Tourniquet binding time is limited. Press the countdown button on the upper limb for 60 minutes, or lower limb for 90 minutes. Sounds and red lights remind the medical staff to relax the tourniquet so that the medical staff can grasp the hemostatic situation of each injured patient. The warning tourniquet not only has the function of dispersing tourniquet pressure and good regulation but also emphasizes the alarm function.
