Precaution is better than cure. ~Edward Coke
A student contacted us today regarding an IBD (Israeli Battle Dressing) usage during a recent vacation. Apparently he and his wife were enjoying a short trip out-of-town and decided to take a walk to do some sightseeing.His wife, wearing sandals, ended up with a laceration on the sole of her foot from a stray piece of broken glass along the trail. As many know, cuts on feet tend to bleed badly, and this one was no different. However, our student was prepared! As an attendee of our Emergency Treatment of Gunshot Wounds Course he not only had the skills to stop the bleeding, but, per our advice, has made a habit of carrying an IBD on his person at all times. He had the bleeding controlled in under a minute!
