– Titusville Police Department’s Officers received cutting edge trauma tourniquet kits and specialized training on their use, thanks to the generosity and proactive efforts of Khalid Siddiqui M.D. and Parrish Medical Center.
The trauma kit disbursement and training was conducted on Monday, June 15th
, 2015 at 12:30 PM at Parrish Medical center in Titusville. Patrol and S.W.A.T. officers were trained to safely identify indicators for tourniquet application, and properly apply them to extremities.
This training effort is the brain child of Dr. Siddiqui, Medical Director of the Emergency Department, Parish Medical Center, Team Health and Emergency Room providers. This unified medical front supports the importance of early aggressive prehospital application of tourniquets in life threatening extremity trauma. The collaboration realizes that these kits and training for first responding officers will save lives.
The collaboration of health care professionals donated the kits and “hands on” practical training for the officers.
