Law Enforcement Study on UB South Campus
Protocol: STUDY00007334
Full Title
Efficacy and Efficiency of Tourniquet Application in a Hemorrhagic Shock State
The University at Buffalo (UB) Department of Emergency Medicine is looking for law enforcement personnel for an in-person study. The goal of the study is to learn more about the challenges of applying a tourniquet after an officer suffers blood loss. We hope to use the study results to improve law enforcement health and safety.

Participants will complete 2 in-person study visits on the UB South Campus (on Main Street and Bailey Avenue in Buffalo). The first visit will take about 30 minutes and include a screening and agreement to participate in the research. The second visit will take about 2 hours and include applying a tourniquet in two different scenarios. Your vitals (such as heart rate and blood pressure) will be measured. You will then answer questions about your study participation experience.
