UNLABELLED The objective was to determine if proper application of the Stretch, Wrap, and Tuck Tourniquet (SWAT-T) would stop arterial flow and would occur with minimal training. METHODS Fifteen undergraduates watched a 19 second video three times, practiced twice, and applied the tourniquet to volunteers at 10 locations: 3 above the elbow or knee and 2 below. RESULTS Successful occlusion (60 second Doppler signal elimination) was more frequent than proper stretch (96 versus 75), more… Expand
