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...
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...
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...
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 ...
Intraoperative tourniquet-related pain is well recognized by anesthesiologists, but postoperative tourniquet-related pain has received little attention. We present a patient who underwent a total knee...
Pneumatic tourniquets use in surgery to create a bloodless surgical field. The majority of orthopaedic surgeon use a tourniquet inflated above systemic blood pressure during arthroscopic anterior cruc...
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.
