Free Stop the Bleed training course – No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always arrive first. A person can die from blood loss within five minutes. Rapid control of bleeding at the scene of an accident or disaster can be lifesaving.
Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican is offering a “Stop the Bleed” class train and empower people to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
“Stopping a bleed is a relatively simple thing to do, if you know how to do it correctly,” said Kim Dokken, Senior Director of Neuroscience Service Line, Trauma, Stroke and Telemedicine at Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican. “People who attend this training will learn how to pack a wound and use a tourniquet and be able to respond to those in need, as well as train others on these simple lifesaving techniques. As a trauma center, public education is key to our mission, and we are eager to offer this training to help ensure our community is ready to respond when needed.”
