Description: When I went to EMT school, I had numerous bandages for different types of wounds and that’s all I could use. Not all of my patients met the text book type injuries and what was I to do with all of my bandages? Today’s data supports a paradigm shift of bleeding control measures that are simple and effective for medical providers and the general public.
