A Tourniquet can be the difference between life and death. When you are in the ocean or waterways anything can happen. This isn't limited to Sharks or Crocodiles.

The tourniquet should be applied above the wound. 3 simple steps make OMNA Tourniquets easy to rapidly apply. Pull Tight, Wrap, Lift Ratchet. Improvised Tourniquets can't be applied with one hand.
