Clinical Data Supports the Use of Tourniquets in a Civilian Setting.
Despite the positive results of serveral military studies on the benefits and safety of tourniquets useage, and the recommendation of civilian organizations, the adoption of tourniquets by civilian EMS and other responders are still low.
Further, several civilian organisations recommend the use of tourniquets and address their importance in reducing the morbidity and mortality of casualties, especially in mass casualty events.
