Seminars & Lectures

Bleeding to death is the leading cause of preventable fatalities, including 90% of combat and 40% of civilian fatalities. Nearly 20% of these deaths are due to uncontrolled bleeding at the torso-appendage junction. Specialized junctional tourniquets in this market require professional training, time-consuming multi-step assembly, fine­motor movements, and users experience a high rate of device displacement during patient transport. 


The HDO Health Journiquet™ is a novel, class II, non-sterile, non­invasive, single-use medical device designed to stop junctional bleeding quickly and effectively. It can be rapidly deployed (estimated at 20 seconds) in high-stress combat and trauma environments.


Hear from Founder Bryan Stewart, MBA, Co-Founder, Tanya Nocera, Ph.D., Co-Founder J. Allen McElroy, M.D. and Co-Founder Nadi Graham, TEMS about their journey in creating The HDO Health Journiquet™ and what they hope it can achieve.

All are welcome to attend.
