I started this year carrying a tourniquet on my boat this year because there are so many things that can cause severe damage to a body on a boat...

I went through the "STOP the Bleed" course offered locally by one of the hospitals and first emergency responders.
They teach you how to use a tourniquet and pack a wound.

I thought it was so basic that it was useless..... until I saw that video.

I'm not criticizing the guys on the boat but, there were SO MANY things they could have done for that guy as soon as he jumped on the boat.
They may have done them after the camera was turned off, I do not know, but the young guy was asking what the hell to do, if to put pressure or not, etc...
I'm thinking of at least 4 or 5 things I heard on that "useless" course that could have been applied in that situation.

It may have been useless for me, but it may be helpful to others, and it is free.

We have a really good training program at work for 1st aid, CPR and AED's. I don't have a AED on board my boat but I think I will one day. I have a very advance wound care 1st kit and tourniquets kit that I put together myself. I couldn't find a kit that had everything I wanted.

tourniquet and hemostats come in very very handy!

My nephew cut the sht out of his leg on the trim tab while we were scalloping over the weekend. Not life threatening at all, and gave me a chance to break out my first aid stuff and play medic.

I need to go through and update my first aid kit, maybe enlisting input from fire rescue buddy. Also find a place to keep it more accessible so when I need it, it's not under a pile of snacks and sunscreen.

I need to put some shrink wrap or something on trim tab, maybe a caution sticker. People that don't do it often will find a hazard where you didn't even consider there to be one. Maybe even get a different ladder.

It presents a good reason for captain of vessel to avoid drinking beer until you come in and everyone is at the house breaking out the chips and salsa. I want to be thinking clearly if there is an incident.
