Repost @pmccarthy10 Here’s a cool demo from today’s @darkangelmedical D.A.R.T. class at @scottsdalegunclub. Most of us know that tourniquets are a crucial life-saving device for treating trauma to extremities, but what happens if someone is hemorrhaging from a junctional area such as the groin? Ideally, you’d want a purpose-built junctional TQ, but that may not always be available. Instructor @justrossome showed us how to use two C-A-T tourniquets and a Nalgene bottle to improvise a junctional TQ.

A normally proportioned 160-pound person requires A normally proportioned 160-pound person requires approximately 1,200 calories per day to avoid adapting to fasting and starvation metabolism. Our metabolic sensors monitor our bodies and ensure that our brain tissues continuously receive a steady supply of their preferred energy source, glucose (carbohydrates). Upon sensing a caloric restriction, body stores of glucose, particularly muscle and liver glycogen, are consumed within 72 hours to nourish the brain and other critical tissues. And after only 12 hours of fasting, the next day’s carbohydrate calorie needs are already being sourced by metabolically cannibalizing body stores of fat and protein.
