Stop the Bleed training offered March 20

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Learning and Development

Representatives of the K-State Police Department will teach students, faculty and staff specific bleeding control skills. Stop the Bleed, EHS101, training will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, March 20, in 107 Edwards Hall. 

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.
