“The SAM Junctional Tourniquet does things no other tourniquet can; it occludes the femoral artery in the inguinal area at the junction of the torso and legs. When blast injuries take off legs like in Boston and every day in combat zones, it can easily be fatal. It is frequently difficult if not impossible to stop the bleeding in time… A regular tourniquet encircles and compresses the entire limb. The SJT puts direct pressure on the only part of the limb that actually matters, the artery. It is well designed, ruggedly constructed, and terribly clever.” http://www.ems1.com/trauma/articles/1447092-The-SAM-junctional-tourniquet/ –Dan White, EMT-P, EMS1 Columnist, Owner Arasan, LLC
