Stop the Bleed

Stop The Bleed is a national campaign started by the White House to address the most common cause of preventable trauma death in the United States: uncontrolled bleeding.

Stop the Bleed trainings March 31 in Bloomington, Ellettsville

Serious bleeding can result from everyday injuries such as those that may occur at home, at work or while on the road. This free, educational program brought to you by IU Health Bloomington Hospital trauma Services, represents the current “best practice” recommendations on how to manage life-threatening bleeding. It can make a difference between life and death, even before professional rescuers arrive.

This training will teach bystanders how to stop bleeding with dressings, compression, and tourniquets. This is knowledge that is not taught in your normal basic training for first responders.

Advance registration is suggested but walk-ins are welcome.
