Description

Did you know that Trauma is the # 1 cause of death for Americans between the ages of 1 and 46 years old and is the # 3 cause of death overall in the United States? 35% of victims die due to severe bleeding before they get to a hospital in an emergency situation.

“Stop the bleed” is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. “Stop the Bleed” initiative hopes to save lives by educating bystanders on techniques to help stop severe bleeding.
