Stop the Bleed Courses
Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and 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 before professional help arrives.
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. Thus, it is critically important to quickly stop blood loss. Those nearest to someone with a bleeding injury can make a life-saving difference, if they are adequately trained to provide first care.
Swift Safety Institutes course offers training in basic bleeding control techniques such as direct pressure, wound packing and tourniquet application. The course is appropriate for both the general public and healthcare providers. It can be used as a stand alone class or an add-on for a CPR class. The course takes about an hour to complete, and is guided learning through presentations, demonstrations, and skills in class.
