DES Tourniquet Training Manikin
This is a relatively inexpensive training aid ($150) that instructors should consider adding to their collection. It's a great tool to reinforce Tourniquet application. When students only apply tourniquets to themselves and fellow students they rarely tighten them enough because they do not want to elicit pain. Not tightening a tourniquet enough can be problematic, properly applied tourniquets should completely occlude all arterial blood flow. This device eliminates the possible training scar of only apply tourniquets loosely during training.
As you can see in the photos above it works with all commercial and improvised tourniquets and it simulates various extremity sizes ranging from adult leg to a pediatric arm. It is 100% made in the USA. It comes empty and you simply fill it with cat litter. Click the Drumm logo below for more information.
