“Tourniquet have extensive applications in surgeries, battlefields, military, emergency, trauma settings, and including natural calamities. The usefulness of tourniquets is aimed to manage the extremity hemorrhages in civilian settings. However, these devices should only be used as a last resort after other measures have failed the stoppage of bleeding or in complete traumatic amputation. A tourniquet should be correctly used and one should have proper training. An inappropriately used tourniquet will be harmful and can cause increased bleeding.
Therefore, a dedicated or improvised tourniquet must be used with proper training and experience to accomplish overall effectiveness during any medical situation. This will be an effective way of controlling serious bleeding that may otherwise not be controlled by simple measures. – “ Mohammed Azhar, Senior Research Analyst (Research – Healthcare) at Infoholic Research.
