An Esmarch bandage is a bandage which is designed to act as a tourniquet to restrict the flow of blood into a limb in order to limit blood loss. The original version of this bandage was developed by German physician Friedrich von Esmarch in the late 1800s for use in battlefield medicine. Since then, the design of the bandage has changed considerably, as have its uses. Medical supply companies may carry Esmarch bandages in their catalogs, usually in a range of sizes.
The original version of the Esmarch bandage was a triangular strip of tough material such as linen. The bandage was designed to be large so that it could be utilized in a number of different ways, allowing people to carry one bandage to meet numerous needs. On the battlefield, this could be extremely important, because medics needed to travel light in order to provide services to as many soldiers as possible.
