If you're out in the woods and you cut yourself so deep that applying pressure or using stitches won't do the trick, then you need to make a tourniquet fast. A tourniquet can made out of many things.
In fact, our Water Filter Straw has a piece of extension tubing that people have used as a tourniquet on a hike.
Today, we'll show you how to make one using paracord.
When will you need to make a paracord tourniquet?
whenever you have uncontrollable bleeding from an Arm or Leg
whenever their is an amputated or partially amputated limb
when other attempts to control a bleeding extremity have failed (direct pressure,bandages)
when you have multiple injuries or multiple victims to address
when your description of the bleeding limb begins with an expletive "Oh S#*% that's a lot of blood!"
