Learn Bleeding Control Skills

Did you know that after a traumatic injury, hemorrhage is responsible for over 35% of deaths and over 40% of deaths within the first 24 hours- second only to the rates of death due to severe central nervous system injury? Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable trauma death. It is estimated that as many as 1 in 5 trauma deaths are preventable through the use of bleeding control techniques.
