The protocols about loosening tourniquets are probably when it is going to be over 12 hours before you get the patient to surgery. Where I work PT where every hospital is at least 2 hours away, I still wouldn't loosen a TQ.

Even the Boy Scouts have stopped teaching raise the injury and pressure points. They teach Pressure, more pressure, TQ.
