The EMT should STOP TWISTING THE STICK WHEN THE BLEEDING STOPS. The correct option is B. Tourniquets are usually used as the last resort for severe bleeding, this is because it may cause injury to the bleeding organ.Tourniquets are only used on arms and legs and only when the bleeding is life threatening and can not be controlled by any other method.
