Stop the Bleed is a campaign that teaches people how to respond to emergencies where life-threatening bleeding is present. By learning just a few simple steps, you can become trained to save a life in an emergency situation. Bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death after injury, and the actions of immediate responders can be crucial in determining the outcome of the situation. With the skills and knowledge provided by Stop the Bleed, you can help to stop life-threatening bleeding and potentially save a life before professional responders arrive.
This workshop teaches how to:
- immediately respond to bleeding
- recognize life-threatening bleeding
- find appropriate ways to stop bleeding
