Stop the Bleed: Bleeding Control Training
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. Within five minutes, a person who is bleeding can die from blood loss, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.
This free course teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control using a tourniquet, wound packing and direct pressure with gauze. Skill demonstration is a part of the class.
