citizenAID Tourni-Key: A Simple, Affordable Tourniquet Solution

The citizenAID Tourni-Key is an easy-to-use, cost-effective alternative to commercial tourniquets. Developed by citizenAID, a charity specialising in trauma care and public preparedness, this tourniquet is ideal for emergencies and potential terrorist attacks.

Contents of the citizenAID Tourni-Key Kit

The kit comes sealed and includes:

  • Tourni-Key: A plastic device that hooks around the bandage, allowing you to apply pressure.
  • Card: Positioned between the skin and bandage to prevent pinching.
  • Instructions: Step-by-step guide on how to apply the Tourni-Key.
  • Triangular bandage: A material bandage used to occlude blood flow.

Using the citizenAID Tourni-Key

  1. Unroll the triangular bandage, ensuring it's wide enough to cover the injury site without being too tight.
  2. Wrap the bandage around the injury and tie a knot.
  3. Place the card between the skin and the bandage to protect the skin from pinching.
  4. Lay the Tourni-Key on top of the knot and secure it with another knot.
  5. Wind the Tourni-Key to tighten and apply pressure. Once the desired tightness is achieved, hook the plastic back on itself to hold it in place.
  6. Secure the ends of the Tourni-Key by tying them around the bandage.
  7. Note the time the tourniquet was applied and ensure it is not removed until emergency services arrive.

If bleeding continues, tighten the Tourni-Key by turning it an additional 180 degrees and securing it on the opposite side.
