The Anti-Necrosis Tourniquet is an automated, electronically controlled tourniquet system. It is designed to prevent necrosis of limb tissue and associated nerve damage.
Inventor Mohammad R. Jafary a biomedical engineer from Toronto, ON has created an automated, electronically controlled tourniquet system. It is designed to prevent necrosis of limb tissue and associated nerve damage.
There are various kinds of tourniquets on the market today; however, these tourniquets just prevent bleeding. They stop blood flow to all downstream areas of the limb. This can cause necrosis of the tissues, nerve damage, and can even result in eventual amputation of the limb. Inventor Jafary has created a means for a device that goes beyond the functionality of a standard tourniquet and prevents dangerous medical situations. Its control unit uses an integral air pump and associated circuitry to alternatively switch between a high and low pressure level to both prevent bleeding and let blood circulate.
This clever new invention helps save lives. It can be used on oneself or others. It features a simple to use control panel. The invention is ideal for use in ambulances and emergency rooms. It is perfect for EMTs, law enforcement officers, hunters, or military personnel. The use of the Anti-Necrosis Tourniquet stops excessive bleeding in limb areas in emergency situations without worry of causing additional injuries due to necrosis.
