WILSONVILLE, Ore., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- EMS World Magazine, the leading monthly publication for the emergency medical services market, has announced SAM Medical Products as a winner of the 2013 Top Innovation Awards for the new product, the SAM Junctional Tourniquet. The awards recognize the industry's most innovative products of the year on display at the 2013 EMS World Expo. The winners were chosen by industry expert and EMS World Magazine Editorial Advisory Board Member Mike Smith, BS, MICP.

The SAM Junctional Tourniquet is a life-saving device designed to stop junctional bleeding in both the inguinal and axilla areas. It also controls pelvic fractures. No other device currently available on the market offers this level of versatility for these three cleared indications. Time is of the essence for patients with these types of injuries, and the SJT's simple design allows hemorrhage control in less than 25 seconds in most cases.

"We are honored to be chosen from a very competitive landscape," says Will Fox, VP of Marketing and Business Development. "The team here at SAM Medical worked very hard to bring the SAM Junctional Tourniquet to market. "

"We continue to be impressed by the caliber of the entries each year," says Scott Cravens, publisher of EMS World. "Our exhibitors are creating products and technologies that are both increasing the safety of EMS professionals and transforming the delivery of emergency medical care. "

The December 2013 issue of EMS World Magazine will feature a list of the winning companies and products. The January 2014 issue will feature a comprehensive report on the 2013 Top Innovation Awards.
