Tourniquets have evolved! The plan is always to survive. The SAM SX Extremity Tourniquet has increased survival in extreme injuries. We all hope to never need a tourniquet; however, if if one is ever needed, the SAM SX is what you want available. The SAM XT was designed, engineered, and built by SAM Medical. It uses an innovative design with a metal windlass rod, a slackless TRUFORCE buckle, targeted pressure TRUFLEX plate, time band and nylon precision strap.
The best description of the SAM XT tourniquet is the simple ratchet we all know about. This medical ratchet is built with high-quality, durable and weather-resistant materials to MIL-STD 810G specs.
How to Operate the SAM XT Tourniquet
Pull the strap around the area, click it into place, twist the windlass rod and secure it in place with the Time Band. The SAM XT comes in a black on black Military version or an orange on black Civilian version.
