Prehospital Tourniquets: Review, Recommendations, and Future Research
  • P. C. Lewis

TLDR
The current state of the knowledge regarding tourniquets will be discussed with a focus on prehospital use, using the operating room literature when needed to fill knowledge gaps, and some areas for future research are explored.
Extended (16-Hour) Tourniquet Application After Combat Wounds: A Case Report and Review of the Current Literature
TLDR
It is important for physicians to understand tournique injury and appreciate that even extended tourniquet application times does not necessarily doom the affected limb.
A New Exercise Training Methods for Untrained Middle-Age Males: Comparison of Effectiveness Resistance Training with Blood Restriction Cuffs vs Traditional Resistance Training
TLDR
It seems likely that performing resistance training with BFR during middle age is a good way to delay the adverse effects of aging on anabolic hormonal factors.
Comparison of lower limb lifting and squeeze exsanguination before tourniquet inflation during total knee arthroplasty
TLDR
Lower limb lifting exsanguination is a safe and effective technique that could decrease the incidence of skin tension blister and alleviate early postoperative pain reaction, and might have the potentiality to be commonly utilized in TKA procedure.
THE USE OF TOURNIQUET IN LIMB SURGERY
The tourniquet is routinely used in daily practice for upper and lower limb orthopedic surgery, in order to obtain a bloodless surgical field and thus
What do the people who transport trauma patients know about tourniquets?
TLDR
If surgeons want civilian prehospital care to include the use of effective, arterial flow occluding tourniquets at appropriate limb locations, they need to communicate with their emergency medical service providers concerning tournique knowledge, training, protocols, and appropriate equipment.
Understanding of intra-operative tourniquets amongst orthopaedic surgeons and theatre staff--a questionnaire study.
TLDR
The results show suboptimal knowledge of tourniquets and their use among SpRs and ODAs in orthopaedic surgery and the need for amendments in training to improve the knowledge and awareness of medical practitioners is highlighted.
Surgical tourniquets in orthopaedics.
TLDR
Measurement of limb occlusion pressure can help to minimize tourniquet pressure levels and pressure gradients for individual patients and individual surgical procedures.

Cell Swelling: A Factor in Ischemic Tissue Injury
TLDR
A possible role of cell swelling in ischemic damage to tissues is pointed out and the changes affect the intracellular fluids rather than the interstitial fluid of the tissue and the swelling and shrinking of the cells is secondary to their changes in content of solutes.

TOURNIQUET PARALYSIS: ANALYSIS OF THREE CASES OF SURGICALLY PROVED PERIPHERAL NERVE DAMAGE FOLLOWING USE OF RUBBER TOURNIQUET
TLDR
A review of the literature reveals few reports of peripheral nerve paralysis following the use of a rubber tourniquet for surgical hemostasis, probably due to the fact that the vast majority of cases show only an evanescent paralysis with involvement lasting a few days or weeks, followed by complete remission of symptoms.
