"We were introduced to Compression Works and Dr. John Croushorn, co-founder and the inventor of the AAJT-S junctional tourniquet," said Doug Shepherd. "Compression Works responded immediately and even had their instructions and application videos translated into Ukrainian so that those using the device could receive training on the use of their life-saving technology," said Shepherd.

"The Compression Works Abdominal Aortic & Junctional Tourniquet-Stabilized (AAJT-S) device was originally designed to stop severe bleeding on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and is now in use with every branch of the U.S. military, Special Operations, NATO allies and first responder groups around the world," said Chief Medical Officer for Compression Works John Croushorn, MD.

"When we delivered supplies recently, we had a Ukrainian soldier approach us who said that he was alive today because of one of the tourniquets that we donated during our last visit," stated Shepherd. "It is the real-life impact of giving that makes you want to continue to do everything you can to help people and save lives," said Shepherd.
