The NAR (North American Rescue) BOA® Constricting Band is one of the best inventions in peripheral IV access. When assigned to improve peripheral IV access, North American Rescue engineers looked at two primary aspects of the challenge of how the product would work, and how easy it would be to work with. The BOA® Constricting Band, a now-critical component of successful IV cannulation, was the answer to both.
It works in a revolutionary manner. Never since constricting bands were first conceived has the design been as fundamentally altered as it has been with the BOA®. For consistently improved central venous access, the BOA® employs a rolling action to transfuse venous blood to the distal veins while still allowing arterial flow. (For maximum effect, the BOA® is placed as high up on the extremity as possible.) This technique distends the veins to make IV access quicker and more effective even in the most challenging patients.
Its ease of application is also revolutionary. BOAs patented design features a Quick Click connector and two-finger Quick Release. No longer must health care professionals tie (and often re-tie) a constricting band. The BOA decreases the time required to treat combat casualties, civilian trauma patients, or medical patients with poor vascular access (e.g. diabetic wound care).
Originally designed for our Armed Forces, the BOA® is now available to First Responders at all levels.

The best thing I ever used as a tourniquet in 20 years of experience in healthcare. I will recommend it anytime!
Necessary when you can't find a vein!
If you need to administer an IV and are having a very tough time finding a sight(vein), this item virtually takes care of the problem. Attach high on arm and roll down, poof!, veins. (States: One time use only on package, but I try to reuse if sanitary)
