I love the concept of the combat suit being a soldier's initial first aid system. I suspect this is the direction actual ground combat tech is going.
Given your obvious expertise in tech stuff, my guess is that you already follow this type of science on the webs?

I've never found anything like this on the web that's being developed or even discussed for that matter. If I was a doctor I would be developing something like this now. I know it would save lives. We probably don't have the technology for sensors to detect rapid blood loss to make an automated system like this but how hard could it be to push a button and have the suit apply an emergency tourniquet?
I came up with the idea awhile back while making one of my game mods for Fallout: T-60 Power Armor

Tournaquet

I think it was Blackhawk that developed a combat uniform [ACU pattern] with built in Tournaquets. My roomie is a blooded combat medic and one of the things he drills into his joes is when and where to apply tournaquets. Most combat fatalities are because the casualty bleeds out before he can get stabilized. The fact your suit immediately "suspends circulation" and then pumps up the blood volume to compensate for lost volume is perfect. The Blackhawk uniform is manual, so I can see this as an evolutionary step in the concept.
Excellent writing and illustration!

Thanks for that info. I just looked it up and what I think is pretty cool about it is that they have the same amount of tourniquets and in the same place as mine. It's nice to know that I guessed right.

Most excellent body positioning from real to x-ray! Maybe you should try and pitch your ideas to the military. Then you could tell us CFer's where to go.

Thanks. Yeah I'll probably add this to the stack of ideas and crazy inventions that I never followed through on.
