Tourniquet Technical Background

In the past, the hose type tourniquet used in domestic hospitals has common problems such as cross-use, repeated use, safe storage, non-sterilisation or disinfection, or disinfection of dark partitions, causing serious contamination of the tourniquet.

The specific performance is:

1. The pathogens picked up by the tourniquet are far beyond the "Hospital Disinfection Hygiene Standard" (GB15982-1995) 4.2.3. The total number of bacterial colonies in contact with skin should be ≤200cfu/g or 100cm2: pathogenic microorganisms must not The "required" and the detection of the conditional pathogens (reported in a large number of domestic literature).

2. The medical devices, utensils and articles that are in contact with skin and mucous membranes must meet the disinfection level as required by Article 12 of Chapter 3 of the Hospital Infection Management Measures (Decree No. 48 of the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China); Operational procedures for invasive medical devices such as blood collection must be sterilized.

3. Studies have shown that flat tourniquets can better alleviate patient pain and improve puncture success rate than round tourniquets. Affected by internationalization, the application range of domestic one-time tourniquets will gradually shift from the use of military or field “emergency” hemostasis to “conventional” treatment of infusion, blood draw and hemostasis.
