A New Tool in the Box

Tourniquets are a valuable, life-saving tool, and providers should be well-versed in their use to control bleeding and prevent hypoxia.

Jason Clark reports on the first in-the-field use of the iTClamp, a new device designed to control bleeding but still allow blood flow to distal areas.
