According to theSTOP THE BLEED campaign, the average bleed-out time is 2-5 minutes. While the average EMS response time is 7-10 minutes.  It's statistics like these that drive us here at PBA.  The Premier Body Armor Bleed Control kit was intentionally designed to be the perfect companion to one of our Backpack Inserts or Vests.  The armor is designed to stop gunshots to the torso (cardiac box), whereas the Bleed Control Kit is designed to stop bleeding from the extremities, giving the users the much-needed time to be treated at a hospital.  The foundation of the kit is the S.T.A.T. Tourniquet, both simple and intuitive to use due to its "ZipTie" design.  This pack is small enough to fit in your pants pocket but would make an ideal addition to any everyday carry bag, backpack, purse, or glovebox.

Introduction to Bleed Control Kits

The Premier Body Armor Bleed Control Kit - the ultimate emergency medical kit for swift bleed control when time is of the essence. In a world where every second counts, having the right tools at your fingertips can make all the difference between life and death. 

From active-shooter situations, to workplace accidents, you never when you might need to stop the bleed. That's why it’s always best to come prepared for anything by having the best medical gear or best trauma kit on hand.

In emergency situations, statistics speak volumes. According to the STOP THE BLEEDcampaign, the average bleed-out time is a mere 2-5 minutes, whereas the average EMS response time extends to 7-10 minutes. These numbers underscore the need for immediate action in managing life-threatening bleeding.

We understand the urgency of these moments. Our Premier Body Armor Bleed Control Kit is purposefully designed to complement our Backpack Inserts or Vests.


Why Choose Our Bleed Control Kits

While our armor offers protection against torso injuries, including the cardiac box, our Bleed Control Kit steps in to address bleeding from extremities, which can buy crucial time until medical assistance arrives.

At the heart of our kit lies the XForce Tourniquet, renowned for its simplicity and intuitiveness, thanks to its ziptie-like design. While the CAT tourniquet is the standard, many average civilians don't know how to use it. Having a simple, easy-to-use tourniquet means anyone is equipped and ready to help in a dire situation.

This pack is compact yet comprehensive and designed to be effortlessly portable, fitting snugly into your pants pocket or seamlessly fitting into your everyday carry bag, backpack, purse, or glove box. This makes it a smart choice for those seeking the best trauma kit or best IFAK (individual first aid kit).


Key Components to Stop the Bleed

The PBA Bleed Control Kit deploys all the key players in stopping the bleed. A Stop the Bleed® Kit includes the following items:

  • Instructions
  • Tourniquet
  • Compressed Gauze
  • Compression Bandage
  • Gloves
  • Trauma Shears

Here's a breakdown of what each of these items offers:

Tourniquets:

Our kit features the top-of-the-line XFORCE tourniquet, designed for easy application and effective hemorrhage control. Unlike the combat application tourniquet (or CAT tourniquet for short), which may be unfamiliar to many civilians and potentially challenging to use in emergencies, our tourniquet is crafted with intuitive design by medical experts. This makes it suitable for everyday civilians and even children.

Employing a ratcheting style like a snowboarding boot, this tourniquet tightens slowly and incrementally to increase the pressure until you get your desired fasten. It also includes a timer dial that can be set, giving EMTs valuable information on how long the tourniquet has been in place. It also has a quick release and incremental release levers, giving detailed control to EMTs arriving on the scene.

Hemostatic Agents:

Hemostasis gauze and QuikClot Bleeding Control Dressing work by rapidly absorbing blood and facilitating clot formation at the site of injury. 

This process stops bleeding and helps the body heal faster, closing wounds quicker and lowering the chance of problems.

With these advanced hemostatic agents included in our kit, you can rest assured knowing that you have the necessary medical gear to manage even the most severe bleeding incidents.

Bandages and Dressings

Our Bleed Control Kit contains a variety of bandages and dressings, ranging from sterile gauze pads to adhesive bandages. These supplies are meticulously organized for quick access. 

The compact design of our kit makes it a nice addition to a first aid box. It can also easily fit into a medical belt pouch, ensuring convenience during emergencies. Whether it's a minor scrape or a more serious laceration, our kit equips you with the necessary tools to provide rapid wound care.


Applications and Use Cases

Our Bleed Control Kit is indispensable in a range of scenarios.

Emergency Medical Situations

Our Bleed Control Kit is perfectly suited for a first responder bag or first responder medical bag systems. Just keep your emergency response kit in a location that allows for swift intervention, like your go bag backpack or your car. Here are a few situations where you would want a bleed control kit:

  • Car accident
  • Bicycle or Motorcycle wreck
  • Playground injury
  • Active shooter situation
  • Cooking/kitchen accident

Outdoor and Camping

The kit is also designed for outdoor enthusiasts. Simply tuck it away within a hiking first aid kit or camping first aid kit and enjoy the peace of mind knowing that you are prepared to handle injuries while exploring remote wilderness areas.

Military and Tactical Use

Our kit is optimized to serve as an enhancement to a military medical kit or for tactical medical kits, offering specialized lifesaving tools tailored to the demands of high-pressure and highly dangerous missions. Versatile and robust, it's adept at managing small, everyday injuries as well as more serious conflict-induced wounds.


How to Use Bleed Control Kit Components

It is usually a good idea to get comfortable with your med gear before you’re faced with a surprise emergency. The tools in our Bleed Control Kit are intentionally made to be simple to use, but here’s a quick overview of the kits functionality:

How to Apply a Tourniquet

How to tie a tourniquet? With the XFORCE Tourniquet's design, fastening is quick and intuitive. No tying is involved. Simply place the tourniquet close to the wound but not directly on it – placing it 2-3 inches above the wound (between the wound and the heart) is often recommended – pull the strap tight, and secure it. It operates like any zip-tie.

Managing Arterial Bleeding

Arterial bleeding, stemming from damage to an artery, poses a significant threat due to its rapid flow and potential for severe blood loss. Understanding how to effectively address this bleeding from an artery is crucial for saving lives in emergencies.

Using Hemostatic Agents

How to stop a cut and what stops bleeding fast? When faced with arterial bleeding, applying hemostatic agents – like the Celox gauze in our kits – directly to the wound can help stop the bleeding fast. This readily prevents additional loss of blood and assists the blood in clotting to stop the bleed more effectively. It works for both minor cuts and more serious lacerations.


Frequent Questions About Bleed Control Kits & Medical Gear

How do I use Kwik Clot Combat Gauze effectively in an emergency?

Using Kwik Clot Combat Gauze in an emergency involves just a couple simple steps. First, apply direct pressure to the wound to control bleeding. Then, pack the gauze tightly into the wound cavity, making sure you apply full contact with the source of bleeding. Finally, maintain pressure on the wound while calling 911 until you stop the bleed or until medical attention arrives.

What makes a Bleed Control Kit better than a standard first aid kit for car accidents?

A Bleed Control Kit surpasses a standard car medical kit by specifically addressing severe bleeding, which is a common and potentially life-threatening consequence of car accidents. Our kit equipped with specialized med gear such as tourniquets, hemostatic agents, and trauma dressings leaves the most effective medical gear to curb severe bleeding at your disposal. 

Instead of just using a standard auto first aid kit, add the Bleed Control Kit for optimal on the road emergency preparedness. Together, both items can help complete a comprehensive medical kit.

How long can you safely leave a tourniquet on a wound?

How long can you leave a tourniquet on? While tourniquets are vital in controlling severe bleeding, it's important to minimize their application time to avoid tissue damage. As a general rule, a tactical tourniquet should not be left on for more than two hours. After applying a tourniquet, seek medical assistance ASAP to get proper wound care.

Are there special considerations for utilizing a Bleed Control Kit in military or tactical situations?

Specific factors should be taken into account when deploying a Bleed Control Kit, especially those designated as military medical kits or tactical medical kits. These kits are meticulously designed to meet the unique demands of intense combat environments in military or tactical scenarios. 

Despite the med gear in the kit being suitable for high-stakes situations and severe bleeding, the military usually develops its own medical system for combat.

Can individuals with basic first aid knowledge utilize the Bleed Control Kit?

Absolutely. The Bleed Control Kit is accessible to individuals with or without basic first aid knowledge. Check out our article about teaching first aid to kids!

Additionally, it's always a good idea to explore your first aid kit options at your local wholesale supplier of first aid supplies and to learn the basics of first aid.

With clear instructions, Premier Body Armor's Bleed Control Kit enables users to administer life-saving care confidently.

Perfect Packaged Kit

I was on of the winners of PBA's recent giveaway and I am very grateful for that. Within the prize package was PBA's bleeding control kit. Now, normally, I would give a review based on actual use of the products contained within but in this case I'll have to base my review on just the quality of the contents because I don't want to bust open an EMERGENCY kit just because. I've had a combined 30+ years of experience in bleeding control between my time in the USAF and as a career firefighter/EMT of 25 years and I've seen a lot of gadgets and gizmos in that time that claim to make things easier. Some items do and but most items are simply over engineered things that already are proven to work. IN the case of PBA's kit they did a great job of putting together things that work. You really can't go wrong with any of the items. The S.T.A.T. X-Force TQ is of of those new items I mentioned earlier. I was able to get my hands on one prior to this review and I have to say....it works. It's super simple to apply and even easier to take off and I do like the fact that the TQ can be eased off and turned into a compression dressing. That's pretty ingenious. The tabs are nice and big and easy to manipulate even with gloves on and the ratcheting system is probably as good if not better than a windlass in some cases. And a TQ with a timer?!!! WHAT THE?!! Yeah, pretty smart. Putting all of this into a small package that can easily fit into a glove box (where mine sits), a Go Bag, or as part of a home kit is a win.
