Massive Hemorrhage Control
In TCCC/TECC, massive hemorrhage is managed through the use of tourniquets, hemostatic dressings, junctional devices, and pressure dressings. Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death in combat. Researchers have found that 91% of the potentially survivable patients died from hemorrhage. In Vietnam, massive hemorrhage from extremities comprised over 9% of all deaths, however, of the leading three causes of preventable death, it was about 60%.
