What are the Different Uses for Paracord?

Paracord can be used for a variety of purposes, including in survival situations. Here are few ways to use paracord: 

-String a tourniquet: Cut a length of paracord about 18 inches long, and tie one end around your upper arm just below the bicep. Cross the other end over the first and tie it tight. Make sure the knot is tight against your skin. Now pull the tourniquet tight. You may check out this link if you want to know more about uses of Paracord.

-Make a sling: Cut a length of paracord about 12 inches long and place it over your shoulder perpendicular to your body. Now make a loop by folding one end over the top of the cord and pulling it through the loop. Make sure the fold is close to the end of the cord so that it forms a knot when folded over.

-Apply a tourniquet: If the wound is severe and won't close on its own, make a tourniquet by wrapping a length of paracord around your arm above the wound and pulling it tight. This should stop bleeding and help to clot the blood. You will probably have to wrap this around your arm at least twice.

-Relying on someone else: The most important thing you can do if you are wounded is get immediate medical attention from an emergency room trained first aid professional. If that option is not available, find someone who has training and can help you or someone who will go immediately to the hospital (police, your family, friends).
