Blood Flow Restriction Training Preparticipation Screen
Blood flow restriction training (BFRT) with light loads is generally regarded as a safe and effective way to build strength and muscle mass when heavier loading is not possible. This being said, there are several risk factors and contraindications to blood flow restriction training and tourniquet use in general that may preclude you from using BFRT. This resource is designed as a checklist that can be given to people interested in BFRT to screen for common contraindications that may prohibit the use of this technique and should be used along with clinician judgment.
