There is no evidence to support tampons being effective in hemorrhage control, and multiple tests have proven that they are ineffective in a major bleed. Z fold combat gauze, Quik Clot ect for junctionalaxial wound, tq's for limbs and Tagaderm or chest seals for trunk injuries

@Thatotherguy no, and at that point you might as well use wound packing gauze. Listen in all seriousness of you are untrained in a procedure DO NOT PERFORM THE PROCEDURE. If you've never pack a wound before the worst time to learn is the real thing. Alot goes down in a little bit of time.

Think of it like this, you get shot in the groin and your illiac artery rupturs and starts bleeding perfusely. If you don't stop that bleed quick you'll die. No what if about it. It will take no less then 3 minutes to bleed to death after the rupture of a major artery and you only have a minute tops to control it yourself before stock starts setting in and you lose fine motor skills among other things. Shock can Cause Alerted Mental Status, make you confused and act irrational

Another tq to look into, BE ADVISED THOUGH, IF THE RACHET FAILS THEY TELL YOU TO TREAT IT AS A CAT. At that point you should buy a cat but this is another TCCC approved tq https://youtu.be/QMNaNZek-xQ

Actually its because yall are blocked. Tampons are not meant to replace medical equipment when you can get proper materials. The point was if supplies are dried up and you had two options, use it or bleed out, it can be used. It was a trick passed along by a SF medic who was at FOB Keating with my unit. It is fine that in your experience things are different. It is also fine if you want to bleed out when all other materials are gone. Also bitch boy winchester, surely you can start a message better than 'your an idiot' As for me i was the lone paramedic for a county where the hospital was a 3 hour drive if you are lucky. I will focus on my men while yall stroke off over eachother.

Further more there's a 1001 better options then packing a wound with fucking tampons "if supplies dry up" once again you don't under stand he idea behind wound packing and because some wanna be said they did it a few times everyone thinks it works. And i gaurentee any SF unit is going to have the proper medical equipment. Everyone has a right to their own opinion until it's an opinion that is going to get another human being killed. Then i have a huge issue with that. I've seen trauma patients go to shit quick, once shock sets in in the field your chances of saving the patient drop substantially, ever if you run ALS you can only maintain them for so long before they decompensate and expire. Furthermore your sticking your foot in your mouth for someone who after MULTIPLE TIMES BEING ASKED BY BOTH MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND THE ADMIN TEAM REFUSED TO RELEASE THEIR LEVEL OF TRAINING OR PROVIDER STATUS. So all your doing is making your self look like a jackass to defend some mcguiver wanna be medic bullshit that does not and will not work on any wound that actually requires wound packing

@Rosiland#7984 I highly doubt you were any count of paramedic if you legitimately believe any of the garbage you just posted, I also doubt you were ever anything more than an EMR.
