Abstract : Uncontrolled hemorrhage continues to be a leading cause of fatal injuries on the modern battlefield. Uncontrolled pelvic andinguinal bleeding is a leading preventable cause of death. This project is designed to study a new hemorrhage control device(Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet AAT) to control this kind of hemorrhage in a worst case scenario injury model(hemicorporectomy). Using a porcine model the AAT will be compared to conventional hemorrhage control using Combat Gauze and pressure dressing.
