Video: 10 Critical Principles of Tourniquet Use
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, like Celox (Found here on our store).
