Automatic Tourniquet

Automatic Tourniquet

                                        Automatic Tourniquet

It's an Automatic Tourniquet!

Used for arthroscopy knee surgery in the Operating Room, this specialized machine is equipped with technology designed to assess and calculate the pressure required and apply only the minimum amount of tourniquet pressure needed to occlude a limb at a specific time for a specific patient. 

Studies have show that this custom pressure helps to reduce complications associated with tourniquet use, and helps to reduce post-operative pain for patients.

Due to the specialized and highly responsive nature of the equipment, an automatic tourniquet costs $16,000!

Will you help?
The Operating Room at your Georgian Bay General Hospital is in desperate need of a new tourniquet!  The current unit being used is on loan from RVH as your hospital's tourniquet was no longer safe to use.
