A randomized controlled pilot study evaluating the effect of occlusion training on bone density and function of the upper extremity following a biceps tenodesis.
Occlusion training, resistance exercise performed with a specialized venous tourniquet, leads to beneficial changes in muscle strength at low resistance and minimal stress on the nearby jo...
This study is a prospective, double-blinded, randomized control trial examining the effect of blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy on reducing post-operative quadriceps atrophy in patients...
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...
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...
The aim of this study was to determine whether an early increase in intracranial pressure (ICP) following the deflation of a tourniquet is related to the tourniquet time (TT) or tourniquet pressure (T...
Exsanguination from limb injury is an important battlefield consideration that is mitigated with the use of emergency tourniquets. The Combat Application Tourniquet (C-A-T®) is the current British mi...
One of the greatest conundrums with tourniquet (TQ) education is the use of an appropriate surrogate of hemorrhage in the training setting to determine whether a TQ has been successfully used. At our ...
Exsanguinating limb injury is a significant cause of preventable death on the battlefield and can be controlled with tourniquets. US Navy corpsmen rotating at the Navy Trauma Training Center receive i...
A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A virulent form of dengue characterized by THROMBOCYTOPENIA and an increase in vascular permeability (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive pain test (e.g., TOURNIQUET PAIN TEST). When accompanied by SHOCK (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome.
Method in which prolonged electrocardiographic recordings are made on a portable tape recorder (Holter-type system) or solid-state device ("real-time" system), while the patient undergoes normal daily activities. It is useful in the diagnosis and management of intermittent cardiac arrhythmias and transient myocardial ischemia.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
An occlusion resulting in overstrain and injury to teeth, periodontal tissue, or other oral structures.
