Abstract
Junctional and inguinal bleeding is a significant and challenging problem on the battlefield. Inventors have developed new types of tourniquets, including the Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet (AAT) and the Combat Ready Clamp (CRoC) to address these abdominal and pelvic injuries. While these hemorrhage control technologies have been developed, validated, and approved for use, training systems that teach and refresh skills related to these technologies have not been developed. Training systems for these types of injuries are vital because the injuries are rare on the battlefield and difficult to train. To address these needs, we propose to design and demonstrate the feasibility of Tourniquet Master Training (TMT), a scenario-based training system featuring a reconfigurable, sensor-enabled mannequin linked to a software-based virtual mentor that teaches, assesses, and provides refresher training.
