Research Facts
The original version was designed by Friedrich von Esmarch, professor of surgery at the University of Kiel, Germany, and is generally used in battlefield medicine. Esmarch himself had been Surgeon General to the German army during the Franco-German War. It consisted of a three-sided piece of linen or cotton, the base measuring 4 feet and the sides 2 feet 10 inches. It could be used folded or open, and applied in thirty-two different ways. An improved form was devised by Bernhard von Langenbeck later on.

Research Facts
Evans and Wormull, formerly Evans and Stevens, first appeared in 1874; they were recognized as suppliers of medical instruments to the British army and navy. Evans & Co. was a surgical instrument maker working in London between 1676-1874.
This style of screw tourniquet was invented by Parisian surgeon Jean Louis Petit in 1718, and his design was used until the early 20th century; he was the first person to use the term 'tourniquet'.

Research Facts
Skey's tourniquet was used to control bleeding during operations; it could compress a whole limb or just a specific artery because of the placement of the pads. The tourniquet was shown at the Great Exhibition of 1851 at the Crystal Palace.
Skey's tourniquet was invented most likely around 1850 by Frederick Carpenter Skey, an English surgeon. Skey lived from 1798 until his death in 1872 of ulceration of the intestines. In 1822 he became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and in 1826 became the demonstrator of anatomy at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. He taught surgery at the Aldersgate Street for ten years, while still holding various positions elsewhere. Skey became full surgeon to St. Bartholomew's Hospital in 1854, but had to retire in 1864, as he was over the age of 65, and there was a new rule calling on staff to retire after reaching 65. Skey was also chairman of the first parliamentary committee to find the best way to treat venereal disease in the army and navy. Skey published at least two books in his lifetime, one on operative surgery, and a series of lectures on hysteria. During his time teaching, Skey became close friends with many of his pupils. He loved animals and preferred to teach the broad principles of a subject over the details.
