Infographic: Tourniquet Vs. Packing Vs. Seal

You know I love my infographics. I found this one today on Facebook. It was produced by the Proactive Response Group which is a training company out of Chapin, South Carolina. Thanks to North American Rescue for reposting it which is how I found it.

This infographic goes over what is the best method to stop the bleeding by area of the body. What you do for an extremity is not what you would do for the abdomen.

  1. I find it amusing that someone felt the need to have an infographic to state that you only put tourniquets on extremities. No kidding?

    Also, no mention of tampons or clotting agent.

    Good advice on “don’t pack abdomen”. I probably knew that but probably didn’t actually think about it and might have overlooked it in an emergency.
