Direct pressure, if administered quickly, may eliminate the need for a tourniquet by restricting blood loss and haemorrhaging without the hazards associated with untrained tourniquet use.
The Israeli Emergency Bandage enables injury victims acting alone to complete the entire bandaging operation using one hand, and is intended for both untrained laypeople and paramedics.
The bandage was invented by an Israeli military medic named Bernard Bar-Natan, the founder of First Care Products Ltd. Since then, it has become the medical standard for military organisations, police, fire departments and emergency response teams worldwide.
As a trauma and secondary dressing in one, the in-built pressure applicator bar on the Israeli Bandage exerts direct pressure on the injury as the bandage is pulled to increase tension. A sterile secondary dressing pad keeps pressure strong and stable, and reduces the risk of infection.
The Israeli Emergency Bandage condenses several bulky first-aid items into one quick and compact pressure bandage. It can be used as a field dressing or pressure dressing, as a makeshift tourniquet, a sling, or even as an ACE bandage wrap.
The Israeli bandage is highly recommended as part of an effective emergency IFAK bag for high-risk workplaces, police departments, fire departments, and individuals.
