The Emergency Bandage or Israeli bandage is a specially designed, first-aid device that is used to stop bleeding by placing up to 30lbs of pressure directly over the wound.
First used for saving lives during a NATO peacekeeping operation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the bandages were successfully used during operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. The emergency bandages were nicknamed "Israeli bandage" by American soldiers, and have been "the bandages of choice for the US Army and special forces."
Israeli bandages were included in the first aid kits of emergency personnel and first responders at the 2011 Tucson shooting, and were used to treat some victims of the shooting.
These bandages are manufactured in Lod, Israel, by First Care Products Ltd.
