Tourniquets for Phlebotomy
Tourniquets for General Practices & Hospitals
The tourniquet is used in clinical areas and the surgery to congest blood in the vein during phlebotomy, injections or infusions. With the help of tourniquets, blood vessels can be more easily found and punctured with a needle. At Praxisdienst, you will find a nice range of medical supplies for use in medical practices and clinical settings.
Tourniquets in Various Sizes & Specifications
Tourniquets, for puncturing vessels, are available with different specifications. They not only differ in size (band length), but also in material and type of locking mechanism. Some medical tourniquets are meant for single use, while other tourniquets are autoclavable. Additionally, you will find tourniquets with special one-handed quick release mechanism and clips for vein immobilisation.
In addition to the classic Prämeta tourniquet, green, we offer special paediatric models, which are anatomically fitted to the patient's arm size and often decorated with child-friendly motifs. Many models are available in various colours, such as blue, petrol, green or pink. The Pämeta tourniquets are especially popular with doctors and phlebotomists, as they prove to be exceptionally easy to operate via the metal locking system.
Prämeta Easy Tourniquet 904
A completely new style of tourniquet is the Easy Tourniquet 904. As opposed to common tourniquet systems, the Easy Tourniquet allows for the filling and fixing of the vein without hindering blood flow. This tourniquet reduces the risk of tissue acidosis, even during longer procedures.
The medical products for single use allow for particularly hygienic and gentle constriction without the risk of cross-contamination and infectious transmission during venipuncture. The use of non-woven material of the strap makes them extra skin-friendly. Since they are latex-free, they can even be used on patients with allergies. Disposable tourniquets are often available in packs of 100.
Tourniquets for One-Handed Operation
In this category, we offer the innovative daisygrip tourniquet with magnetic latch. The buckle of the quick release tourniquet is activated with one hand to provides easy congestion and decongestion. The tourniquet for quick blood collection is made of low-maintenance and disinfectable silicone.
Conveniently Order from a Wide Range of Tourniquets
You may conveniently purchase your tourniquet with different specifications and colours from Praxisdienst. In our online shop, you will find tourniquets as well as supplies and kits for venous blood collection, infusions and transfusions. We not only provide the suitable needles, but also a wide range of sharps bins, infusion accessories, collection tubes, disinfectants for surgery and hand hygiene, swabs and injection cushions.
Single-Use or Reuse?
Both types have their advantages: the cotton fabric of reusable tourniquets can be autoclaved to allow for hygienic and environmentally friendly use, while the disposable products are particularly suitable for high-risk patients and mobile use (e.g. in first aid).
Arterial Tourniquets vs Regular Tourniquets
The strap of arterial tourniquets is not elastic and designed for stopping life-threatening bleeding in emergencies, e.g. in first aid and emergency services. However, they can also be used as a regular tourniquet if needed.
