Being efficient as a man is important.
That means the more skills you have the more effective you can operate on this planet.
With that in mind, I want to talk about a very important skill that anyone can learn.
It's very easy to learn but a critical one to master.
Whether you like it or not at some stage of your life you will be in a situation where you are in an accident, shooting, or some other form of violence.
And you will have to deal with the scenario where someone close to you or a stranger needs your help.
In situations where it's about life or death someone needs to step up.
And there is a very good chance that at some stage that person will be you.
You will be the first responder in that moment whether you like it or not.
With that in mind, you need 2 things:
You need to be prepared with the right kit.
And 2 you should know how to use it.
Today I want to talk about how to use a Tourniquet to stop serious bleeding.
Tourniquets are tight bands used to completely stop the blood flow to a wound.
Of course, it is advisable that a medical professional take care of stopping serious bleeding or save a life.
But there might come a time where you are isolated and if you don't act the person with you might lose their life.
Tourniquets are standard issue in the military for obvious reasons.
Different special operations units even have their own custom made Tourniquets designed based on their experience in the field.
So I thought the best way to show how to use a Tourniquet is to let a Green Beret explain exactly how to use it.

Tourniquets can be purchased online and you can carry one in your backpack or just leave it in your car.
In fact you should have a first-aid kit with a Tourniquet in your car at all times.
