MAKE IT STOP!!! Down and Dirty Bleeding Control-Session 3-February 2nd 1300-1400 Hours
“MAKE IT STOP!!!” is a motivating yet realistic approach to time critical bleeding assessment and treatment built for all audiences as long as they have a rather strong stomach. 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 roll and will be demonstrated throughout. Examples of civilian medicine using bleeding control techniques will make this class become a reality.
Upon completion the student will be able to:
- Differentiate between Arterial, Venous and Capillary Bleeding.
- Identify the source of the bleeding and how to stop it aggressively.
- Apply appropriate treatment after bleeding has been controlled
