The ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding in someone who is injured and effectively assist that person can save a life.

Studies have shown that the help given by an immediate responder can often make the difference between life and death, even before medical professionals arrive.

The American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma is leading the effort to save lives by teaching individuals how to provide vital initial response to stop uncontrolled bleeding in emergency situations. The Bleeding Control Basics course gives participants the necessary tools to become an empowered initial responder.

Launched in October of 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed® is a national awareness campaign and a call to action.

Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency … becoming the beginning of the trauma care chain of survival.

During Stop the Bleed training, you will learn how to:
  • Determine if an area is safe for you to proceed toward a victim to provide assistance
  • Identify any nearby tools to assist you such as a publicly placed bleeding control kit or everyday items that can be used to control bleeding.
  • Use your hands to apply direct pressure at the site of the wound to stop bleeding
  • Pack a deep wound with cloth or gauze to control bleeding
  • Correctly apply a tourniquet to an injured limb to stop bleeding
  • Keep the victim calm until help arrives
