    Abstract

    A randomised trial was performed in 100 patients in order to evaluate the effectiveness of three commonly used methods of exsanguination (simple elevation, squeeze method and Esmarch bandage) in a clinical setting. The quality and quantity of the exsanguination was evaluated every 5 min by the surgeon and the amount of oozing was observed. Although there was no significant difference between squeezing the arm and Esmarch bandaging, both resulted in significantly better exsanguination than simple elevation. In 22 out of the 100 patients, a small amount of ooze was observed. The oozing was observed significantly more frequently in the patients exsanguinated by simple elevation.
