    [Method] Carotid artery compression convulsions

    How bad are the convulsions from carotid artery compression? Is there anyway to reduce them or at least make them less likely to unwind the rod? (Using tourniquet method)

    [Discussion] Neck padding

    Is it worth padding your neck? I’m planning on carotid artery compression using the tourniquet method, with tights as a ligature. Not sure what to use to pad my neck though, if anything.

    Are tourniquets useful?

    I saw to other user having problems with this method and I have problems too. I read the Exit Path chapter but I still have doubts. I doubt about the effectiveness of this. I never did it successfully. I heard you have to reach the carotid artery that is the deepest but I don't know if I did...
