When Should I Use A Tourniquet?
Tourniquets should be used when direct pressure alone cannot stop the bleeding, or when direct pressure cannot be applied properly for any reason. Heavy and uncontrolled bleeding can result in death within minutes, thus when dealing with a severe wound, it is critical to respond swiftly.

When To Remove A Tourniquet
The tourniquet is generally left on the limb for no longer than 2 hours. When the procedure takes longer than that, the tourniquet should be partially deflated for 2 to 3 minutes, followed by reapplication of a sterile Esmarch bandage and reinflation of the tourniquet.

Do Tourniquets Hurt?
Unfortunately, the process of putting a tourniquet can be quite painful, and the victim is likely already in a lot of discomfort. Inform the person that applying the tourniquet will be painful, but that it may save their limb, if not their life.
