When applying a tourniquet, a note is laid under it indicating the time of application. If the tourniquet is on the limb for more than 2 hours, then tissue death due to oxygen starvation is possible. The tourniquet should be applied at a distance of 3-5 cm so that the large vessel is pressed against the oblique protrusions.
