Pt has sickle cell, resident instructs you to put on tourniquet. What do you do?
Remind the resident that the pt has sickle cell disorder and if you use tourniquet you increase stasis, local aciosis, and hypoxia. The resident responds, "I know dummy, give me literature to prove it!" There really is no literature supporting this argument, however we still don't use it and you are right when it comes to boards!
