RevMedx announces TX® Series Added to CoTCCC (Committee for Tactical
Combat Casualty Care) List of Recommended Limb Tourniquets
The TX Series joins the revolutionary XSTAT injectable hemostatic on the TCCC list of
recommended hemorrhage control devices for casualty care.
RevMedx, Inc., a leader in groundbreaking solutions for the control of severe bleeding, today announced that the CoTCCC has added the TX Series ratcheting tourniquets to its list of recommended Limb Tourniquets. Andrew Barofsky, President and CEO of RevMedx, Inc., stated, “We are pleased that yet another RevMedx product is now part of the TCCC guidelines. Our company is dedicated to adding innovative solutions for first responders and medics around the world.”
The United States Army Institute of Surgical Research reports that 30 to 40 percent of civilian deaths by traumatic injury are the result of hemorrhage, many of which occur before the patient reaches an emergency care facility. For victims of violence or accidents, early control of severe bleeding may prevent shock and save a life.
While there are a variety of tourniquets on the market, their narrow width and windlass tightening mechanismpose limitations to ease of use and patient comfort. Some research suggests that wider tourniquets have been known to provide better patient comfort during application and transport as well as having the potential to minimize tissue and nerve damage during application. The TX2 and TX3 (2 and 3 inches wide respectively) are the widest non-pneumatic tourniquets recommended by TCCC. With an intuitive and simple ski boot ratchet design, the TX series enable fast application with minimal training.
