Description

Cedar-Sinai is proud to offer Stop the Bleed training. As a Level I trauma hospital, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is a leader in providing the highest level of care for injured patients. The services of the Cedars-Sinai Trauma Program range from prevention to rehabilitation.

Program Overview

The targeted audience for this class is the layperson with little to no medical training or any healthcare professional who may be called upon to assist trauma victims prior to EMS arrival. The program will consist of didactic education, two skills stations, a pre and posttest (no required passing grade), and class evaluation. The classes is free of charge.

Background

The Stop the Bleed Campaign was created to save lives that would otherwise be lost due to preventable injury. In 2013, after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT a comprehensive review of injury patterns was done by Lenworth M. Jacobs, Jr. MD, FACS. He then worked collaboratively with the White House; the National Security Council; the Department of Homeland Security; the Federal Emergency Management Agency; law enforcement, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Department of Defense; and prehospital and physician provider organizations forming the Hartford Consensus. Together, using lessons learn from previous military conflicts and mass causality events, they created an algorithmic approach to deadly injuries which was given the acronym THREAT. THREAT stands for Threat suppression, Hemorrhage control, Rapid Extrication to safety, Assessment by medical providers, and Transport to definitive care. Current the Hartford Consensus III is focused on educating immediate responders on the principles of basic hemorrhage control. This is accomplished by a live class with skills demonstration stations. The Stop the Bleed Campaign is now overseen by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS-COT).
