Tactical medical device is first of its kind
Date:5/7/2013

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Combat Ready Clamp made history Friday when it received new critical indications from the FDA making it the first device of its kind approved to treat unmanageable amputations and pelvic wounds not addressable with standard limb tourniquets.

The Combat Ready Clamp is a vise-like tourniquet now approved for use on all five anatomical junctions where life-threatening hemorrhage can occur in the result of such actions as roadside and terrorist bombings.

Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death in combat and remains the top focus of tactical medicine.

Approximately 25 percent of potentially survivable deaths are due to uncontrolled junctional bleeding. According to an upcoming study in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine, more than 800 U.S. military personnel have been hospitalized with these types of junctional injuries during the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 150 personnel suffered from upper extremity injuries, 25 of whom died of their wounds. Friday's FDA clearance will now allow the Combat Ready Clamp to be put to use in every compressible, junctional emergency situation.

Combat Medical Systems of Fayetteville, N.C., maker of the Combat Ready Clamp, recognized the need for an atypical tourniquet device and has worked extensively with the U.S. Army's Institute for Surgical Research in San Antonio, Tex., and with the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston Salem, N.C., to ensure the device's clinical efficacy.
