Rescue Bandage TQ Inflatable Tourniquet is a unique life saving device. It’s easy to use and highly effective – when time counts.

With this Traumatic Injury device, you will be ready to handle any emergency where blood loss is present. When everything else fails, the Rescue Bandage TQ will not.

Its compact design is perfect for 4×4, boating, mining, atv, construction and outdoor recreation – every first aid kit needs the Rescue Bandage!

Allens Training partners, Terry and Janet Urquhart from Rescue Bandage in Qld, released this product to the market earlier this year. After working tirelessly to develop this product and have it approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) the product is available for purchase.

To use the Rescue Bandage TQ Inflatable Tourniquet, simply ‘slide and wrap’ the Rescue Bandage around the limb above the bleeding wound. The Velcro Restraint secures the Rescue Bandage in place, and as you pump the inflation bulb, the bladder system compresses the underlying blood vessels to stop the bleed.

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines state that - “Tourniquets should only be used for life threatening bleeding from a limb that cannot be controlled by direct pressure. A wide bandage (of at least 5cm) can be used as a tourniquet 5-7 cm above the bleeding point. The bandage should be tight enough to stop all circulation to the injured limb and control the bleeding. The time of application must be noted and passed on to emergency/ambulance personnel. Once applied, the victim requires urgent transfer to hospital and the tourniquet should not be removed until the victim receives specialist care.

A tourniquet should not be applied over a joint or wound, and must not be covered up by any bandage or clothing”.

The Rescue Bandage conforms to the ARC guidelines and is also workplace approved by Safe Work Australia.

Dear Allen's team - thank you for the information, however, you will find that the Australian Resuscitation Council Guideline 9.1.1 on Page 1 of 4, 1.1 MANAGEMENT actually states the 3 steps for bleeding control:
- Use standard precautions (eg gloves, protective glasses) if readily available.
STEP 1 - Attempt to stop the bleeding by applying sustained DIRECTor INDIRECT PRESSURE on or near the wound as appropriate.
• Lie the patient down if bleeding from the lower limb or severe bleeding.
STEP 2 - If severe bleeding not controlled by above measures, USE A HAEMOSTATIC DRESSING if available and TRAINED IN ITS USE (CoSTR 2015: weak recommendation/very low quality evidence) 5.
STEP 3 - If severe bleeding not controlled by above measures, USE A TOURNIQUET above bleeding point if available and TRAINED IN ITS USE (CoSTR 2015: weak recommendation/low quality evidence) 5.
• Call an ambulance.
• If the victim is unresponsive and not breathing normally, follow the Basic Life Support Flowchart (ANZCOR Guideline 8).

Section 1.3 citing a wide bandage IS NOT a tourniquet with the most recent PubMed Study in 2015 results concluded that improvised tourniquets with NO windlass failed to stop bleeding 100% of the time (80 of 80 tests).

STOP THE BLEED® is a registered and protected words (Stop the Bleed) and logo here in Australia and should not be used without the written consent of the owner (MED Response Pty Ltd). Stop the Bleed® is an international campaign that is now throughout North America, Europe and licensed in Australia to Med Response Pty Ltd.

It is strongly suggested that ALL First Aid training providers UPSKILL to ensure compliance with the ARC Guideline 9.1.1 which was released in January 2016. A formal training program should be undertaken by individuals which will also meet RTO Requirements for trainer currency. A formal structured program such as Stop the Bleed® includes the use of quality simulation which has been proven to enhance the learner's ability to correctly apply a haemostatic dressing, wound packing and tourniquet application.

Stop the Bleed® is currently being provided to departments within the Police sector, security companies, First Aid training companies & first aid trainers, surf life saving etc. The right training will make all the difference which is why I encourage your organisation to embrace international best standard meeting national guidelines for STOP THE BLEED®.
