Cuff Selection Guide
Tourniquet Cuff Selection Guide
Delfi’s new Tourniquet Cuff Selection Guide is designed to assist surgical staff in selection of the most appropriate tourniquet cuff for each patient and surgical procedure. This helps provide each patient with the safest and most effective treatment possible.
The Guide was developed in consultation with Jim McEwen PhD, a biomedical engineer, inventor of automatic tourniquets, and President of Delfi Medical Innovations. Dr. McEwen holds patents covering most of the commonly used tourniquet instruments and cuffs in operating rooms today, and has been extensively involved in tourniquet evaluation and development for more than 20 years.
The Guide is based on current tourniquet literature and recommended practice guidelines, and is consistent with current AORN Recommended Practices on the Pneumatic Tourniquet and manufacturers’ instructions. To obtain the Guide on a convenient plastic card designed to hang from your tourniquet instrument, please
