A bleeding injury can happen anywhere. We’ve all seen it happen too often—on the news or in everyday life. Life-threatening bleeding can happen in people injured in serious accidents or disasters. Bleeding after injury is the #1 cause of preventable death! Instead of being a witness, you can become an immediate responder because you know how to STOP THE BLEED®.
WHAT YOU WILL GAIN FROM THE COURSE
The person next to a bleeding victim may very well be the one who’s most likely to save him or her from bleeding to death. By learning how to STOP THE BLEED®, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques. Take the STOP THE BLEED® training course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency happens. This is not the standard Stop the Bleed hour long class! You will work with bleeding (Simulated blood) wounds for real world practice.
HOW WE TEACH
Our instructors will teach you live—in person, using training materials specially developed to teach bleeding control techniques. They will not only instruct you, they will be available to check your movements as you practice three different bleeding control actions. They will keep working with you until you demonstrate the correct skills to STOP THE BLEED® and save a life.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
What stops bleeding? In a STOP THE BLEED® course, you’ll learn three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out: (1) How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound; (2) How to pack a wound to control bleeding; (3) How to correctly apply a tourniquet. We have several models of the TCCC approved tourniquets for you to train with. We also teach you the use of chest seals and nasopharyngeal airways! These techniques will empower you to assist in an emergency and potentially save a life.
Class is about 4-5 hours long depending on the total number of students.
