Stop the Bleed Training offered Feb. 20
Stop the Bleed, EHS101, training will take place from 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, in 107 Edwards Hall. Representatives from the Kansas State University Police Department will teach students, faculty and staff specific bleeding control skills.
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore, it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care. According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Stop the Bleed training teaches you proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use your hands, dressings and tourniquets to save someone's life or your own.
