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. This class will cover hands on demonstrations of simple and effective techniques along with tricks of the trade that will change the way you do bleeding control. This lecture will be full of videos and pictures.

Objectives:

  • Discuss statistical and historical data on bleeding control in EMS
  • Discuss patient management priorities
  • Discuss tools for bleeding control
  • Demonstrate bleeding control techniques
