Introduction

Preface

In this course, the pneumatic tourniquet and how to apply it to a patient’s limb will be discussed. A tourniquet is a constricting or compressing device which is used to control arterial and venous blood flow to a limb for a period of time.

Working mechanism

Pressure is applied around a limb at a specific level, depending on the procedure to be performed. The blood vessels will become temporarily occluded or restricted, as a result of which, there is temporarily no blood flowing through the limb. An electric or pneumatic tourniquet can be used. The pneumatic tourniquet is utilized most often and will therefore be discussed in this course.
