MAKE IT STOP!!! Down and Dirty Bleeding Control
Date & Time
Saturday, October 12, 2019, 9:45 AM - 11:15 AM
This presentation will cover various types of bleeding and the appropriate treatments. We will use explicit photos and videos to illustrate just how serious bleeding can be, as well as the need to stop it. Tourniquets will play a large role and will be demonstrated throughout. Examples of civilian medicine using bleeding control techniques will make this class become a reality. Class objectives include differentiating between arterial, venous and capillary bleeding, identifying the source of the bleeding and how to stop it aggressively, and applying appropriate treatment after the bleeding has been controlled.
