What Makes the Best Tourniquet?

The best tourniquet is one that can quickly and effectively stop a massive hemorrhage while simultaneously eliminating as much pain, tissue damage and other side effects as possible.  The HALO Tourniquet achieves this through its advanced design that promotes rapid employment. 

 

How To Apply the HALO

Applying the HALO Tourniquet is a simple 5 step process:

  1. Detach Red Buckle from base, slide the strap high on the injured limb and re-attach Red Buckle to base.
  2. Pull the strap tight by pulling away from the base using the finger pull as necessary, then wrapping the strap back over itself around the limb.
  3. Free locking tab from stored position by pulling outward, then using the palm push lever fully over.
  4. Secure lever in place with locking tab.
  5. Check for pulse and/or control of hemorrhage.
