The Abdominal Aortic & Junctional Tourniquet has several functions:
AAJT-S compresses the abdominal aorta when applied at the mid-abdomen to control bleeding in the pelvis, groin, and legs.
The AAJT-S compresses the subclavian artery to shut off the blood supply like a faucet.
The AAJT-S can be positioned to stop bleeding for left or right lower leg hemorrhages.
The AAJT-S is cleared to stabilize the pelvis and can reduce the size of the abdominal cavity that the patient can bleed into.
REBOA - Zone 3:
The AAJT-S has been proven to be equivalent to Zone 3 REBOA* when applied at the mid-abdominal level.
