In this video, Nurse Amy steps in front of the camera to discuss important principles with regards to tourniquet use to stop massive hemorrhage.  Besides the imperative to apply pressure to stop the bleeding, Amy discusses the concept of pressure loss, the length of time the tourniquet should be placed, and when to transition the tourniquet to a pressure dressing with hemostatic agents. Nurse Amy (an advanced registered nurse practitioner) gives you strategies that will help prevent rebleeds, and other factors that make tourniquet use appropriate and generally safe.
