“Showing how an improvised apparatus, or temporary tourniquet, may be adapted to arrest bleeding from an artery in the arm. This apparatus consists of a potato held in place over the partery by a pocket handkerchief used as a band. A stick, picked up on the ground, is inserted benearth the band on the opposite side of the limb and used as a lever to press the potato firmly against the artery.” — Blaisedell, 1904
