SAM Medical, a manufacturer in the pre-hospital, trauma care market, has announced the availability of its new SAM Bleeding Control Kits designed to empower more bystanders to take an active role in stopping massive bleeding caused by everyday traumatic emergencies, natural disasters and man-made disasters. Featuring its award-winning SAM XT Extremity Tourniquet, the easy “click, twist and secure” tourniquet, each kit is outfitted with the most essential and easy-to-use supplies to stop life-threatening bleeding injuries during those critical first few minutes before emergency medical personnel arrive.
“At SAM Medical, we are committed to advancing bleeding control by offering effective resources and tools that enable anyone with minimal first aid training to save a life,” said Kyle Sims, director of New Product Development for SAM Medical. “It’s time that everyone has the ability to stop or slow massive bleeding injuries.”
As part of SAM Medical’s greater initiative to increase awareness for public safety and broaden accessibility to quality trauma care medical devices, today the company opened its new online store. For the first time ever, the general public is now able to purchase its entire SAM Medical product line, including the new SAM Medical Bleeding Control Kits, the SAM® Splint, SAM XT Extremity Tourniquet, SAM Chest Seals, and more.
“I’ve served in the Marines, EMS and now the private sector, but what I’ve learned is that the opportunity to be of service in a life-threatening situation can present itself to anyone at any time. You can’t be just a bystander, you have to be ready to take action. This is why I believe in products like the SAM XT. It’s one of the fastest—if not the fastest—self-aid tourniquets out there. It’s so easy to use that it even helps take away anxiety from a situation that would otherwise be extremely overwhelming.” — Ian Six, EMT at Marion County Rescue Squad
"The SAM XT had an impressive application speed and was extremely efficient in the control of massive hemorrhage. You could actually see the bleeding diminishing within seconds." —Eddy Vershilovsky, Emergency Medicine Specialist
“The main issue people have when applying a tourniquet is making sure it’s tight enough. With the growing population of younger people having to deal with severe bleeding-related injuries, an emergency medical device needs to be quick and easy. That’s what the SAM XT brings us. It's so simple, even my daughter at three years old could use it. The pull and click method is genius. Once you hear and feel the click, you know it’s time to start turning the windless.” — Kris Tomes, USAF Pararescueman in the Special Operations
