There's always time for Tourniquets (or is there?)

There were a few changes in the new guidelines that were released in October of 2015. Apart from the usual CPR guideline updates, there was the reintroduction of one of the oldest forms of treatment in history.....The tourniquet! Tourniquets were removed from First Aid years ago due to concerns of limb loss due to inappropriate placement, along with many other concerns, however it is now back in an effort to reduce the number of deaths due to significant blood loss, that could have been prevented. What is a tourniquet? Well, a tourniquet is defined as: Any device for arresting bleeding by forcibly compressing a blood vessel. As a bandage tightened by twisting. (Oxford English dictionary) Sim
