Buckley Medics participate in Tactical Combat Casualty Care exercise
A Junctional Emergency Treatment Tool tourniquet is applied to a manikin during the 2021 Tactical Combat Casualty Care exercise at Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., Feb. 4, 2021. A tourniquet is a constricting or compressing medical instrument used to stop circulation to the extremity below the tourniquet. The pressure is applied circumferentially around the extremity, compressing the veins and arteries against the muscle tissue and bone, stopping all blood flow beyond the device, and providing life-saving bleeding control.
