Rapid Deployment of Tourniquets in the Field, on Yourself and on Others (abstract)

Military and law enforcement personnel involved in tactical casualty care, caring for themselves and others on the frontlines, stress the need for all emergency responders to be familiar with lifesaving tourniquets and to practice self-application, single-handed and two-handed application techniques so they can master tourniquet application if they’re severely wounded in a dynamic or active threat environment, or if they have to apply a tourniquet by themselves or in conjunction with others. Emergency responders have to be familiar with tourniquet application because it’s now a primary tool in trauma kits.
