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...
Trauma is the leading cause of death for individuals ages 1-45 years old, within this cohort, and uncontrolled hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death.1,2 Tourniquets have bee...
To establish whether a short duration of tourniquet application (from cement fixation to cement setting)is associated with better patient functional outcomes compared to a long duration of...
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the acute impact of swelling caused by low-pressure tourniquet use in the setting of ipsilateral prior axillary lymph node dissection and t...
This proposed novel randomized control trial (RCT) seeks to address this gap in TKA protocol by gaining a better understanding of the relationship between tourniquet pressure and time, and...
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...
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...
The purpose of this study was to survey the judgments of tourniquet users in simulation to discern opportunities for further study.
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.
Interconnected system that is used in the automatic acquisition, storage, manipulation, movement, control, display, interchange, transmission, routing or reception of data or information, including computers, ancillary equipment, system software, support services, and related resources.

Data processing largely performed by automatic means.
Abnormally rapid heartbeats originating from one or more automatic foci (nonsinus pacemakers) in the HEART ATRIUM but away from the SINOATRIAL NODE. Unlike the reentry mechanism, automatic tachycardia speeds up and slows down gradually. The episode is characterized by a HEART RATE between 135 to less than 200 beats per minute and lasting 30 seconds or longer.
