Body Cam: Do Tourniquets Work on Kids?

Recent studies have shown that the CAT Tourniquet works on very small victims, and in this video we can see that the SOF-T might also work.

Bleeding in children is easier to control because there isn't a lot of fat or muscle in the way which makes it easier to occlude their arteries.

Children also have much lower blood pressures than adults, making it even easier. If you don't have a TQ available, you can save a child's life with just direct pressure.

If you learned something and feel like helping me spread the word, hit the Thumbs Up, Subscribe, and click the Bell Icon so you don't miss any videos. That's the easiest and freest way to support me.
