            this is advice for combat situations and there's nothing wrong with telling to get rid of the tourniquet when it's not needed, e.g. when the bleeding is not that strong. leaving the tourniquet on for too long will result in a lost limb. also the translation is shit "you are rescuer" is actually "you are a medic" and the whole section is for situations in cover

              The average mobik is not going to be able to know when to loosen it and I doubt they'll be calm enough to reapply the tourniquet if the bleed is still strong. It's terrible advice, especially if you're alone and you've only got the rubber bands since a bad bleed while you're tired and already suffering from being wounded can incapacitate you very quickly. It should be medics doing it in any case, this is what their training is there for. Chances are you'll lose the limb anyways if you're stuck in combat for that long, given the state of Russian medevac so what's the fricking point?

                the point is to not lose a limb because you applied a tourniquet and later realised that it's not needed but kept it on anyway. btw. this advice explicitly for when you're alone with no medics around

                And I'm saying the average mobik is more likely to die from being unable to stop a bleed after they loosen the tourniquet than they are to lose a limb from a mistaken application of a tourniquet. The fact that there are no qualifiers in the advice for this makes it particularly moronic since it implies you should do it with any wound. There are easy flowcharts for this shit, but it is absolutely always regarding treatment being provided by another rather than self-care. Note that even TCCC studies which recommend early removal of tourniquets in field care or medevac do NOT advocate for self-removal of the tourniquet. https://apps.dtic.mil/sti/pdfs/ADA614867.pdf
                If you are willing to risk going into shock and/or being unable to stop a bleed doing so can help you avoid limb loss, but more often than not if you took shrapnel, let alone a bullet to an extremity, self-removal of a tourniquet is extremely moronic. My whole issue with it is that it's about a casualty by themselves you frickwit, that isn't a good reason to do this shit.

                I've no knowledge on this, but I would imagine that you may blow a clot, shrapnel, or just give yourself a nice second chance to frick up and die

                You already may lose the fricking leg because it was bad enought that you needed to use the tourniquet
                if you have to remove it, better to pack the wound, and hope it holds that way, otherwise what the frick have you accomplished?

                If you're not going to get help, and you've been forced to use a tourniquet, I don't see how you're making it out in one piece, just do what you can to stay alive long enough to crawl away

                Frick me now that I'm thinking about it, it's no wonder they're dying so much, those wounds in that environment are fricking severe, no one will help you and you can't exactly walk back to camp

                It's reasonable to use the strongest measure you have before trying to determine if the wound is going to kill you in seconds. But you also don't want to lose a leg over some minor injury by keeping the tourniquet, so

                >if bleeding resumed, tighten it back
                If you didn't bleed out while applying the tourniquet in the first place, it's unlikely you'll get incapacitated by slightly loosening it for a moment while wound is under pressure, has been treated by hemostatic, and you have calmed down.

                Frick no, you're still liable to go into shock and prompt application of a tourniquet can prevent a very bad bleed that would incapacitate you were you to remove the tourniquet. In the first place Ivan Ivanovitch doesn't know what a bad wound could look like. Could have an venous wound that doesn't look that bad until you remove the tourniquet, then next thing he knows he's in shock trying to retighten his shitty rubber band. I don't have an issue with removing tourniquets promptly if possible, but advocating for it as standard procedure when isolated is incredibly moronic.

                If possible as in if there are care providers doing it and who have the time to monitor them you moron. If you want the exact criteria read the paper which outlines it. This is advice they're giving to you average mobik for use by themselves. Modern battlefield medical advice should never be up for that much interpretation in the first place. Read through the TCCC docs and you'll see they spell out what should be done, leaving mostly tactical judgements up to the reader, medical judgements and criterion are provided to the extent possible.

            You are not supposed to do so, it increases ischemic trauma to the limb. The only reason to loosen a TQ ever is to attempt a conversion or to reposition it, with the latter being after you secure the other in place. You aren't even supposed to attempt a conversion twice, loosening TQs is a general no no

                You're missing something, yes. Ischemic trauma is worsened by allowing blood to go back in, primarily due to the formation of oxygen radicals from products formed while the cell is unable to receive oxygen.
                https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK534267/
                This is a well documented phenomena and TCCC does not recommend the periodic loosening of tourniquets in the slightest.

                also, here, I've highlighted your uneducated ass the part where they talk about muscles, they are in fact organs and are referred to as such in medical papers. I've also linked this already but here's THE paper on TQ conversions https://apps.dtic.mil/sti/pdfs/ADA614867.pdf?#page=15
                conveniently the part about ischemic injuries due to reperfusion is right at the top of the page.

                Is there a remedy to remove, or mitigate the free radical oxygen? I can't seem to find much in reading, but it's probably skill issue.

                Also, I thought that main cause of the damage was oxidative phosphorylation being shutdown due to the lack of oxygen and potentially hyperkalemia.

                Does enough free radical oxygen build up that the enzymes aren't able to handle it?

                The link covers the issue, what you're thinking about is just basic ischemic trauma, not the reperfusion variety. What happens is that once ATP production shuts down, the ionic pumps shut down too, which cascades into issues that cause xanthine dehydrogenase to get converted to xanthine oxidase. The ATP also degrades into hypoxanthine, when oxygen comes back into the cell, this causes xanthine oxidase to then react with hypoxanthine -> release of O2- free radicals -> H2O2 and OH formation.

                I'm not contesting that there's some damage from restoring the blood flow, but that doesn't necessary have to translate into practical usage. And if there's at least one US guideline disagreeing with you, then the issue is not as clear as you try to make it look like. Besides your TQ holy text doesn't mention the frequency of "periodic", which makes it vague horse shit

                https://i.imgur.com/1Jj6YL9.png

                Also, just re-read through it, the procedure doesn't do periodic loosenings. It's a single loosening and it's a cope-version of TQ conversion. It's not actually that great and I don't get why they don't just straight up recommend conversion. Read what it says you fricking dumbass. It tells you to release the TQ until you get perfusion but only if you can control the bleeding with pressure. If you can't then you are to re-tighten the tourniquet. Nowhere does it say to loosen the TQ periodically, it's a one time procedure that you do.

                read it again. especially the "every 120 minutes" part

                Forgot to answer this in the last post but the solution is, in a surgical setting, to restore bloodflow as soon as possible and keep it that way, using shunts etc. to deal with the bleed. There's a variety of medicines, like ethyl pyruvate, which can act as anti-oxidants. Finally keeping the limb cold also helps reduce the production of these free radicals upon reperfusion, as one would expect.

          Transferring a TQ is pretty much treated as a basic task now. It can't stay on forever and evac is not possible, so you need to get blood flow back to the rest of the leg if the injury allows. Release slowly, observe changes in bleeding, pack the site.

          The ramapant overuse of TQs is really bad out there and something like half of casualties don't need one when they could have just packed it instead. Reverse of the situation from years ago where everyone was always told the TQ must never ever be used unless absolutely necessary.

If the wound packing and pressure bandage do not control the bleeding, retighten the tourniquet or follow the steps to replace the tourniquet if it is above the clothing, like a high and tight tourniquet. In cases where the conversion has failed, it is appropriate to try again within the next two hours, as long as it hasn’t been more than six hours since the original tourniquet was applied.

            Western militaries have been engaged in multiple wars over the last two decades, and have infinitely more capability to learn from experience on an institutional level compared to Russias' poor parody of a functioning first-world military.

        >TQs
        I mean, you either leave them on and sentence them to a shitty death 3 hours later or you loosen them and possibly cause them to bleed out and die in 2 hours (if the wound is severe enough).
        I don't think the advice is that bad considering their situation.

        I've been reading it in Russian. A normal military manual is like a cook book. This shit is full of all kinds of "wise sayings", near-anecdotes, movie fricking references and all kinds of weird shit that makes it look like a kids book. Combat fricking pets? What's this pokemon crap?

        A decent chunk of this isn't terrible advice but I question why stuff like 'don't get shot helping wounded by just charging over to where they get shot' needs to be in a handbook presumably intended for people already with some degree of training.
        Frick, I did a civilian first aid course and one of the first things they tell you is to make sure you aren't about to put yourself in danger as well.

                Sigh. No, the average IQ on Earth is like 82-83. F.ex average IQ in America, summed across all American subracial groups, is about 88-90. Highest average IQ on Earth is in Japan at 105. Average IQ in India, population 1200-1400 million, is 82.

                You can see the racial differences in the Russian army, the elite VDV is mostly recruited from pureblooded slavs and they look indistinguishable from Europeans. The average mobik is a medium grade (average IQ 90) slav-churka-mongol mix with even dumber central asians (IQ 85) mixed in. These do not look European at all. The Ukies average 90 across their population.

                Additonally, average IQ of American zoomers and generation zero is ~10-15 IQ points less than the previous generations because of massive vaccinations as well as mind destroying electronic toys. I read an interesting twin study featuring two South Korean girls, the one adopted to America had an IQ of 100, while her South Korean sister had an IQ of 115. Since their genetics are identical, there is an environmental factor in America that causes a massive (1 full standard deviation, ouch!) IQ drop.

                The amount of vaccination shots a American child recieves are 10-20x higher than anywhere else in the world. This vaccination megadrive is a new phenomen which started about 30 years ago and has intensified since then by a lot. The elevated rates of ADHD and autism among young Americans is very very likely connected to this. Another way this manifests is as lowered IQ amoung young American adults, lower than expected given their racial backgrounds.

                And this is just conventional vaccines, the demented mRNA and DNA vaccines will prove to have worse consequences long term since delayed auto immune reactions from vaccinations can manifest 3-18 years later. These vaccines are an obvious high risk danger for autoimmune reactions because they have a high potential to cause a friendly fire incident, where the immune system misidentifies a legitime protein created by the body as a foreign invasive pathogen, because of the way these vaccines hijack your normal cells to make proteins mimicking alien pathogens in absurd amounts compared to a regular infection.

                An IQ of 100 is definitionally the average IQ for a population group. If people get smarter then the average IQ doesn't become 110, it stays at 100. If people get dumber then the average IQ doesn't become 90, it stays at 100.

In these tables, american whites average 98 and american blacks 82, germans/dutch/austrians manage to get 102-104 on average.

          It's true in the context of something like a room clearing, where the loss of focus and momentum for even a second could be fatal. But as general advice it's pretty bad. The wounded is the problem of the first person that can safely help, and until they can be stabilised and/or handed over to a CLS.
          It's important not just for that soldier but the morale of the force to know you take care of people properly. You fight better and harder when you know everyone around you has your back if you need it.

It's bad advice because the app's purpose is to provide non-empty, but arbitrary location info to services that request it. This is a useful workaround for location-based apps, many (nearly all) of which won't function at all if you have location services disabled. But if you don't want to give out granular information on your movements over time to some random set of apps on your phone, or the exact location doesn't matter at all, you can opt for a fake / dummy value instead.

                Broadcasting a fixed, fake location is worse than broadcasting nothing in the context of the war.

                Is it? In my mind it's easier to set up an exit node correctly than make this mistake, because DENY ALL is easymode. It's usually in babby's first server hardening tutorial.

                Getting back to the ukraine GPS / leaking context tho:

                In the context of the war, I also usually see 100% hardened as more expedient and simpler to mentally model than doing anything fancy and flexible. For a basic example, it's physically impossible for me to leak ukraine IP / geo metadata when I post here – except through the contents of my posts, of course. If I didn't have a fully failsafe setup, I wouldn't post at all. Residual risks and all.

          it's not galicia-volynhia, it's galicia-lodomeria, which is an austrian made up political subdivision named after latinized names of medieval duchies of Halich and Volodymyr. basically austrians wanted to have a cool name for their new territory after the first partition and the name stuck. even in poland if you ask someone if they are from galicia they will not be offended, especially if they are habsburgboo. russians probably single them out because the region is hotbed of banderism, nationalism, right sectorism etc. and they tend not to be orthodox but greek catholic (orthodox but poland persuaded them to like the pope)

      >Zbigniew Brzeziński
      Using him as a pro-Russian source is kinda funny since he was pretty TZD, basically less bloodthirsty Kissinger, though I can see him being upset with Ukrainians considering:
      a) he used to live on the same land where a few years later Ukies did the UPA chimpout on Poles and israelites,
      b) he wrote that during Bush's WOT, early into Putin's regime when it seemed that Russians will behave like human beings (no no, Chechnya bad because Islam, therefore in league with global terror) and it was Ukrainians that were setting up their nationalism, which naturally came with saber rattling and monuments to Bandera. Spoiler alert - Ukraine nowadays would've been in a much better place diplomatically if they didn't worship Bandera for over a decade since people like Brzezinski ended up shaping their diplomatic image in the US far more than any Ukrainian (obviously not in a positive way).

              That was exactly my point. It is eerie to say the least and leads to suspect it might in fact be written for kids. I hope not, but Russia is fricked up place run by total fricking lunatics who seem to live in an alternate dimension, so anything is possible.

              It's not, in WW2 you had similar books written by all sides. It's meant to be a basic, easy to read guide (field manuals are very detailed pieces of documentation that most people refuse to read out of moronation) that tells them what they need to know in orders of importance, throwing in some references or whatever to make it more relatable.

              It's still fricking moronic (half of the advice is wrong especially the medical stuff, you do NOT remove tourniquets if you are anywhere close to the shooting jesus christ that's generally a job for the aid station minimum) but it's not a bad idea to make this sort of guide.

          It's a bit more complicated than that.
          For one, Ukrainian nationalist, paramilitary organizations had been operating way before WW2 even started, and their main area of activity was in Poland, specifically the Eastern Galicia region. This is because the region had a sizeable Ukrainian minority who didn't like the fact that they were taken over by Poland during the collapse of the Russian and and Austro-Hungarian empires, and didn't have their own country. This led to a lot of conflict and terrorism in the region during the interwar years, with many future members of the OUN and UPA participating in all of this, including Bandera himself. During all of this they were getting pretty chummy with Germany as a sort of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" kind of deal, and when the war kicked off, they were pretty excited, and doubly so when Operation Barbarossa began since they thought the Germans were going to help them liberate all of Ukraine. This proved to be a mistaken assumption, however, as the Krauts immediately back-stabbed them after the Lviv Proclamation, after which the OUN and UPA started to conduct partisan activities that would last throughout the war and even into the 50's. During this period, they frequently bounced between helping and hindering both the Nazi's and the Soviets depending on which one they saw as the bigger threat at any given moment. They were, however, very consistent in their dislike of Poles and went to great lengths to preventing the Polish underground from reestablishing the prewar borders, with the massacres against Poles in Galicia and Volhynia being part of it.

      Galicia was the part of Ukraine ruled by the Austrian empire. Russia claims that "Ukrainian" ethnicity was made up by the Austrians to fool the local slavs into thinking they arent Russian. In the same sense that Serbia told the Bulgarians they ruled over that they were actually "Macedonian". Or the way USSR invented "Moldovan" to break off part of Romania.

              Someone did a study a couple months ago on demographics of mobiks.
              They are on average 30 something, with only 9% of them having any kind of higher education(with russia/ex-ussr being overeducated, most of it is shitty, but still on average percent is much higher); 30% have community college/trade school education, and everyone else has nothing except regular school.
              This is extremely un-representative of male population as a whole.

              And a personal anecdote, a little human tragedy.
              I'm from donbass originally, and still have a couple of relatives there, who share local news with me.
              So, in a town where I'm from, there was a moron(not as an insult, with actual medical diagnosis and disability because of it). During peacetime he did odd jobs for locals(unload a truck for a small business, help on a construction site, remove weeds from a garden, etc), occasionally got drunk, occasionally fricked off with homeless people to wander the area and get drunk together. And when the war began, he was immediately taken. Despite legal disability and you know, clear signs he's not normal. Somehow he survived for a year, was wounded, was treated in russia, returned home(with all limbs attached), told he wasn't close to front lines so it was fine there, and shortly was taken again.
              And a month ago they told his sister he "died in a hospital in st.petersburg(!) without regaining consciousness", so she should come there and retrieve the body(she's as moronic and drunk as he was, so there's no money or ability to do that).

        >The British Committee is concerned that in the UK the usual method providing protection against electric shock to a person touching electric vehicle if the integrity of the PEN conductor is damaged, the TN supply, where protective multiple earthing conditions apply, must automatically disconnect the protective conductor (and associated live conductors) serving the electric vehicle.

        >BS 7671:2018+A2:2022 states that equivalent functions may be included in charging equipment; this is contrary to BS EN IEC 61851-1:2019 standard for PE switching, which is permitted by national regulations outside the charging station. Clause 8.4 of BS EN IEC 61851-1:2019 states that “For permanently connected Mode 3 and Mode 4 electrical equipment, the protective earth conductors shall not be switched.”

        >The UK Committee considers that this statement is contrary to the UK IET Wiring Code (BS 7671:2018+A2:2022, Requirements for Electrical Installations - IET Wiring Code). In the UK, regulation 543.3.3.101 of BS 7671 allows switching protective conductors under certain conditions, including, for example, the following.

        >The British Committee is concerned that in the UK the usual method providing protection against electric shock to a person touching electric vehicle if the integrity of the PEN conductor is damaged, the TN supply, where protective multiple earthing conditions apply, must automatically disconnect the protective conductor (and associated live conductors) serving the electric vehicle.

        >BS 7671:2018+A2:2022 states that equivalent functions may be included in charging equipment; this is contrary to BS EN IEC 61851-1:2019 standard for PE switching, which is permitted by national regulations outside the charging station. Clause 8.4 of BS EN IEC 61851-1:2019 states that “For permanently connected Mode 3 and Mode 4 electrical equipment, the protective earth conductors shall not be switched.”

        >The UK Committee considers that this statement is contrary to the UK IET Wiring Code (BS 7671:2018+A2:2022, Requirements for Electrical Installations - IET Wiring Code). In the UK, regulation 543.3.3.101 of BS 7671 allows switching protective conductors under certain conditions, including, for example, the following.

        Barely coherent, that first sentence especially, but it doesn't suddenly read like its written for a child with a learning difficulty.

        That was exactly my point. It is eerie to say the least and leads to suspect it might in fact be written for kids. I hope not, but Russia is fricked up place run by total fricking lunatics who seem to live in an alternate dimension, so anything is possible.

        I know its surprising, but it seems they dont use conscripts in ukraine. Yes, conscripts are pressured to sign a contract by the end of their service(some reports say some are pressured after only six months), they station conscripts along the official border(so the belgorod incursions probably killed a bit of 18yos), but they are not going straight into the fight as conscripts.
        Sending unwilling 18 yos into meatgrinder is a bad optics, even for russia. It made afghanistan and chechnya wars so unpopular and tragic for soviets/russians despite relatively minor losses - parents werent big fans of sending a kid into basic training and receiving a corpse in the end. Ukraine on the other hand is "its professionals/adults out of their own will doing the fighting, not my business, they knew what they were getting into".

    This isn't even funny anymore. Not even sad. This is horrific. The russian military is a crime against humanity in and on itself. They get lied to, threatened, beaten, robbed, raped, tortured and told that it's the best it's gonna get or that, wait a bit and it will get better, which we can see by now is not going to be the fricking case. And this absolute horrifying existence is the sign of their "noble spirit". There's no fricking wonder these people are suicidal. And they want to bring this to other countries to "liberate" them? I'm not surprised of mobiks blowing themselves up or shooting themselves anymore. It's a way out. The whole, don't give yourself up to the enemy is probably there so that POW's couldn't tell other russians how people live outside of russia so it wouldn't shock the everliving shit out of them.

      Been that way forever. Berlin wall was built to keep the soviets in. The normalization and even glorification of suffering is baked into their psyche. Apathetic people don't rise up. And you can just keep telling them from generation to generation that "soon the better times will come". What they leave out is by that they mean when you die. I wouldn't care if Russia just stuck to it's own borders doing that shit. But they meddle other countries too much. Funding extremists and using bribes/kompromat to sow division in the west.

      OCR-based translation tools that spit it back out over the original document are really designed more to help you work out a sign in a shop in France than they are translate a document in your office.
      The colour is roughly matched to the background and the varying font size comes from it guessing an appropriate size differently between different lines. Weird kerning and spacing also comes from it trying to match the original placement closely. Makes sense if it's three words in a store window, less ideal here.

    If tourniquet is doing it's job while placed over uniform, why not just let it be?

      TCCC does recommend medics re-asses tourniquets after initial triage, though TCCC talks about determining if the tourniquet is tight enough and only suggests repositioning if you slapped it high and tight initially, so as to allow bloodflow to undamaged tissues. TCCC also says only a trained individual do it, and says you should be using multiple tourniquets to do the procedure. Almost everything they say about tourniquets is in some way wrong and it's fricking baffling to me. It's like they read TCCC material but then forgot half of it and made it up as they went.

        That is indeed curious.
        I doubt it's a fake, between not seeing any major red flags and 'write a guide that's on first blush pretty normal and only questionable when you really think about it' being a pretty weak psyop if intended for the kinds of people that'll actually find it like say, us.
        There's also not much that'd make me think it's intended to be actively malicious in any way towards Russian servicemen encountering it, beyond maybe insulting their intelligence a little.

        In many European countries a minister is what you would call a secretary (IE, "Secretary of Defense" would be "Minister of Defense")
        That anon seems to claim that it being an official department of defense manual makes it worse than being a series of random anecdotes from drunken morons compiled in a pamphlet.

        I think what that anon is trying to say is 'this was written by real hard-working vets and not some no good pencil pushers' as if that somehow made it better.

        >The Russian one seems to be written by soldiers with combat experience. The Ranger book is written by ministers with no combat experience.
        Pray tell my ESL friend, what is a "minister"

              The day their propagandists discovered that drawing your enemies as grotesque soi caricature jaks is 1000% more effective for appealing to submentals than all the pig-themed content or smash cuts in the world was a dark day for the art of the propaganda poster.
