Rapid Tourniquet Deployment
Seconds count when a tactical medic, police or military unit encounters someone with severe bleeding.
Rapid deployment of a tourniquet can mean the difference between life and death. The Universal Tourniquet Pouch TMK-UTQ from Chinook Medical Gear Inc. is a heavy duty, easy-to-use pouch that keeps your
tourniquet on your belt for easy access. The TMK-UTQ fits most tourniquets on the market today, including the CAT, SOFT, SOFT Wide, RMT, SWAT-T, Ratchet, and TK- 4. The dual attachment system on the back
makes it both MOLLE and duty belt compatible. Other features include a Velcro closure flap with a red pull
tab for easy one-handed access, elastic sides for a universal fit and a Velcro loop for patch attachment. Constructed of 1000 Denier Cordura nylon, it’s rugged and durable.
Refining the Backboard
If you’ve been in the field of EMS long enough, you probably remember someone in your station cutting plywood into the shape of a backboard and coating it with layer upon layer of
polyurethane. Through trial and error, the backboard has gone through many improvements.
The features of the new Base Board Spine Board 35850 from Iron Duck will add to the list of
evolutionary changes to the backboard. This backboard is made from a tough, completely impervious rotational molded high-density polyethylene shell over non-toxic polyurethane foam
and weighs only 16 pounds. Recent tests show this backboard provides the lowest deflection in
the 400–500 lbs. weight class. The 14 oversized handholds measuring 6" x 2" will accommodate
gloved hands. Ten optional composite pins can be placed in the lower third of the handhold so
they’re out of the way when lifting a patient. A convex bottom helps facilitate extrication, logrolling and lifting. The board is also 100% X-ray translucent.

Cases that Fit Our Environment
Most EMS providers consider their mobile phone to be an
essential part of their uniform and turnout gear, so it has to be
tough enough to take the same beating in the field—
particularly in harsh weather and “dirty” environments. LifeProof has introduced cases for iPhones and iPads that can not only take a beating
and be submerged underwater, but are also easy to clean after a
messy call. The LifeProof fre case for the iPhone 5 is a sleek and thin
case that gives you complete freedom to use your iPhone in any
wet, dirty or rough situation. It’s the only true protective iPhone
5 case that’s waterproof to a depth of 6. 6 feet and tested to military specifications (MIL-STD-810F-516.5) for its drop protection up
to a height of 6. 6 feet onto concrete. The LifeProof nüüd case for
the iPad is water, dirt and shock proof, and features a totally naked
screen that provides a perfect tactile response and visual clarity.
The LifeProof iPad case protects iPad 2 and iPad generation 3 and
