No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders(immediate responders) will always be first on the scene.
You learned CPR and you learned to use a defibrillator. Now learn how to save yourself and others in the event of life-threatening hemorrhage.
No one should die from uncontrolled bleeding. Life-threatening hemorrhage can occur anywhere: at home, on the roadways, in the workplace, during recreation, and in public spaces. Wounds occur from natural, human-made, or intentional causes. An injured person can bleed to death in as little as 5 minutes, often before professional help arrives. It's up to individuals to act immediately to save themselves and others.
Trauma nurses know bleeding. This BLEEDING STOPS HERE!℠ kit is inspired by the faculty at TCAR Education Programs (www.tcarprograms.org), the same experts who have trained more than 25,000 nurses working in trauma centers across the U.S. We strongly support the White House and Department of Homeland Security's nationwide Stop the Bleed campaign. This kit complies with and exceeds the standards set forth by the Hartford Consensus.
ANYONE can learn how to control bleeding. Become familiar with the items in your BLEEDING STOPS HERE!℠ kit. Additionally, there are many bleeding control (B-CON) courses offered across the country. Further resources are available at www.bleedingcontrol.org and www.dhs.gov/stopthebleed.
