Faculty/staff note: Jones on tourniquets
David Jones, a police officer and emergency management coordinator with UW-Green Bay Public Safety, is the author of an article in the professional journal The Police Marksman. In the article, titled “Combat Application Tourniquet,” Jones writes about the change in attitude regarding the use of tourniquets to stop blood loss from extremity wounds in military combat or law enforcement situations. (Military experts now say tourniquets can be effective for as long as two hours without causing their own damage, allowing more victims to survive and be transported for medical treatment.) Jones, who has extensive defense department and law enforcement experience, joined the UW-Green Bay force in the last year.
