Pressure is an important variable in emergency use limb tourniquet science. This study characterizes one system for measuring tourniquet-applied pressure.

Tourniquet application to stop limb bleeding is conceptually simple, but optimal application technique matters, generally requires training, and is more likely with objective measures of correct appli...
Open carpal tunnel release is commonly performed with the use of a tourniquet. The combination of local anesthetic and epinephrine with a pneumatic tourniquet helps provide clear visualization during ...
We evaluated whether moving the "line of crush" from thigh to the calf before onset of tourniquet-mediated hypertension would prevent or diminish it. We also evaluated any change in pain or functional...
Local anaesthetics are being combined clinically with amikacin in intravenous regional limb perfusion (IVRLP), with limited knowledge on the analgesia provided and its onset and duration of action aft...
: One of the greatest casualty-care improvements resulting from US military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan has been the reduction of preventable death from massive extremity hemorrhage - largely d...
Tourniquet cuffs are routinely used to stop blood flow in patients' arms or legs during surgery. This allows surgeons to better visualize anatomical structures during the procedure. Altho...
Pneumatic tourniquets are widely used not only to reduce blood loss and to ensure optimal operating conditions during extremity surgery, but also in regional anesthesia (local intravenous)...
This study evaluates a novel technique for measuring the minimum pressure necessary to achieve a bloodless surgical field, known as a patient's limb occlusion pressure (LOP). Patients will...
Deflation of the pneumatic tourniquet used in lower limb surgery is usually associated with hemodynamic instability, metabolic and respiratory changes. These changes are usually tolerated ...
Tourniquet is widely used in orthopedic surgery. However, prolonged tourniquet inflation may cause a gradual rise in blood pressure, which named as tourniquet-associated hypertension. Thus...
Distinct regions of mesenchymal outgrowth at both flanks of an embryo during the SOMITE period. Limb buds, covered by ECTODERM, give rise to forelimb, hindlimb, and eventual functional limb structures. Limb bud cultures are used to study CELL DIFFERENTIATION; ORGANOGENESIS; and MORPHOGENESIS.
Perception of painful and nonpainful phantom sensations that occur following the complete or partial loss of a limb. The majority of individuals with an amputated extremity will experience the impression that the limb is still present, and in many cases, painful. (From Neurol Clin 1998 Nov;16(4):919-36; Brain 1998 Sep;121(Pt 9):1603-30)
An apraxia characterized by the affected limb having involuntary, autonomous, and purposeful behaviors that are perceived as being controlled by an external force. Often the affected limb interferes with the actions of the normal limb. Symptoms develop from lesions in the CORPUS CALLOSUM or medial frontal cortex, stroke, infarction, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., CREUTZFELDT-JAKOB SYNDROME, corticobasal degeneration).
White matter pathway, flanked by nuclear masses, consisting of both afferent and efferent fibers projecting between the cerebral cortex and the brainstem. It consists of three distinct parts: an anterior limb, posterior limb, and genu.
An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
