Event description

Description

On behalf of the AAMC Department of Surgery and the James and Sylvia Earl Simulation to Advance Innovation and Learning (SAIL) Center, we invite all members of the community and AAMC employees to participate in Stop the Bleed, a course designed to provide everyone with the basic skills required to control massive bleeding. Taught by surgeons representing the general surgery, acute care surgery, and surgical intensive care services, this course offers the opportunity to learn valuable life-saving skills from experts in the field.

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.

BleedingControl.org is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus and contains diagrams, news, videos, and other resources contributed by a variety of other private and nonprofit partners to help prepare you in the event you are witness to one of these unspeakable events.

Join us to Stop the Bleed, and achieve our vision of Living Healthier Together.
