Tutorial – Learn About HemaShock® Application & Removal
Note the difference in color between the feet.
HemaShock® removes blood (exsanguinates) and blocks it from re-entering (tourniquet).
The time limit for safe use of HemaShock® is 120 minutes
Important TIPS for Applying HemaShock®
- Remove shoes. There’s no need to remove pants.
- If there is a bleeding leg injury, apply HemaShock® to the injured leg first. HemaShock® will serve as TOURNIQUET if rolled up higher than the injury.
- If there are a fracture and instability of the leg, apply AXIAL TRACTION. Pull the foot distally, while rolling HemaShock® up. It requires an assistant.
