Clamping Down on Hemorrhage
The CRoC® is the First and Only COTCCC-Recommended Device for Seven-Site Junctional Hemorrhage Control
Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield. Approximately 25% of potentially survivable military deaths are due to uncontrolled junctional hemorrhage1 — the majority of which occur in the pelvic region. When full limb amputations occur in a tactical environment, standard tourniquets cannot be used.
The Combat Ready Clamp (CRoC) is the solution. Unlike inflatable, belt-like devices, the CRoC has a vice-like compression disk that provides the distinct life saving advantage of creating bi-directional pressure exactly where it is needed most – stopping collateral flow and controlling hemorrhage. The CRoC is lightweight, durable, collapsible, low cube and can effectively stop junctional hemorrhage in under a minute.
