Stop the Bleed Training
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) STOP THE BLEED program is administered by the ACS Committee on Trauma. The training is designed to teach three quick techniques to help save a life before someone bleeds out:
- How to use your hands to apply pressure to a wound
- How to pack a wound to control bleeding
- How to correctly apply a tourniquet
The goal of this training is to improve the care to injured patients before, during and after hospitalization.
