How To Apply An Israeli Bandage

The Israeli bandage has become the most ubiquitous field dressing in IFAKs. However, many carry a well packed kit and do not know what is in it. Additionally, they haven’t trained with the equipment. Our friends at Dark Angel Medical alerted us to this instructional video from PerSysMedical. it provides a great overview.

We want to remind you that this video does not replace proper medical instruction from a qualified instructor. No matter the subject, seek out qualified instructors and practice regularly.

    I suppose this applies to civilians who pick up these IFAKs. I can’t imagine anyone in the military getting less training than I had and we covered the use of those bandages pretty heavily. Good video to watch for those who don’t know. Would be a good idea to get an extra bandage to practice with. Don’t even need a buddy if you wrap up your own leg! Practicing doing your own arm is QUITE a bit more difficult but worth playing around to figure out a way.

    Their tourniquet application is fucked. One, they’re doing it in a manner that isn’t recommended by First Care, and two, if they’re not achieving full occlusion, there’s a very good chance that they will have only achieved venous occlusion, which is going to actually speed up blood loss! So, let’s use a real tourniquet, mmmkay?
