Description:

Grant and Reeve used a rough measurement of a patient's injury to estimate blood loss. This is based on the number of the examiner's hands that can be used to cover each of the patient's wounds. While it was developed based on war wounds during World War II, it can be applied to severe civilian traumatic injury.
