    Junctional tourniquets are awesome and extremely beneficial. Having said that, the article is biased and written by someone with a vested interest in the product. Outcomes may be similar due to general mechanism however it is not equivalent to a REBOA. Junctional TQs have practical advantages over REBOA and are definitely more usable on broader scale. But even some SF unit medics are starting to place REBOA .

    That's neat, but that article seems more like a paid placement than true journalism.

    I've never used the device in question, but how is it different than a SAM junctional tourniquet?

    Not doubting, just playing devil's advocate. We have Sam Pelvic slings and the Sam Junctional tourniquet is not much more than a Sam Pelvic slings with an inflatable bladder attached.

    They're on my list of things I wish we had. I've seen two junctional injuries, one which died, that would have benefitted from this.

    I'd be curious to see the comparison to SAM as well.
