A 48 year old surfer was attacked by what is thought to be a tiger shark off the island of Oahu. The incident occurred in the morning, off an area known as Has Bush. EMS officials stated that paramedics arrived on scene, controlled the bleeding, and transported the surfer to the hospital. 

What can be learned from this incident?

1. Know how to apply a tourniquet.

2. Know which tourniquet is made for surfers; carry and use a marine tourniquet, or tourniquet leash.

3. Regularly train with your tourniquet to help reduce the effects of stress.

When it comes to surfing, water sports, and marine environments the recommended tourniquets are OMNA.

OMNA makes all of their tourniquets to marine specifications, they do this because surfers, divers, boaters, and the like require materials that can be used repetitively in and out of the water. Other tourniquets void their warranties when you open the packaging, and are known to degrade to roughly 50% efficacy.

Be ready, in the water with the right tourniquet, an OMNA Tourniquet.
