"TOURNIQUETS SHOULD BE IN THE POCKETS OF EVERY U.S. FIRST RESPONDER" SAYS NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED TRAUMA SURGEON

September 11, 2014

In the August 20, 2014 Navy Times article, "Army Doctor Promotes Use of Tourniquets Among Domestic First Responders", Army Reserve Doctor and nationally recognized trauma surgeon, Lt. Col. David King, advocates the broad availability and use of tourniquets "in the pockets of every U.S. first responder". 

King, a Massachusetts General Hospital surgeon, completed the Boston Marathon in 2013, and half an hour later found himself treating multiple victims of the April 15 bombings. According to King, "What struck me [in Boston] is that many emergency medical services responders don't have tourniquets. That needs to change. A T-shirt with a knot in it doesn't work."

Historically, there has been a resistance to the use of tourniquets due to fear of permanently damaging limbs. However, this resistance is beginning to weaken following high profile incidents, such as the Boston bombing and Virginia Tech shootings where victims bled to death.
