The class teaches the basics of identifying and treating life-threatening bleeding via the application of tourniquets, wound packing and pressure dressings.

WHY DOES THIS TRAINING MATTER?
Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma.
Average time to bleed out from massive hemorrhaging: 2 to 5 minutes
Average time for first responders to arrive on the scene: 7 to 10 minutes
Bystanders can fill the critical time gap and STOP THE BLEED!
Anyone can be trained and ready to save someone’s life – a friend, a family member, a colleague or the person next to you – whether you know them or not.
Learn how you, your family, your school, your place of worship, your company or any other organization you are a part of can be prepared to Stop the Bleed.
