Description

Bleeding Control Basic Course

A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. Thus, it is critically important to quickly stop blood loss. Uncontrollable bleeding is the No. 1 cause of preventable death from trauma. Those nearest to someone with a bleeding injury can make a life-saving difference, if they are adequately trained to provide first care to the injured person.

This course will teach the importance of stopping the bleed. Participants will learn how to identify the source of bleeding, look for life-threatening injuries, and learn basic life-saving interventions including bleeding control with direct pressure, bleeding control with gauze packs, packing a wound, and bleeding control with a tourniquet. Each participant will have the opportunity to perform each skill while in the course. This course is appropriate for both the general public and healthcare providers.

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign aimed at educating first responders and the general public on how to stop severe bleeding and potentially save lives in an emergency.
