A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. Emergency responders will arrive as quickly as possible, but bystanders are almost always there first. Control of bleeding at the scene can be life-saving. This class will give you the skills and knowledge to provide immediate bleeding control to victims. You'll learn how to stop bleeding, apply a tourniquet, pack an open wound, and keep the injured person alert and calm until emergency responders arrive.
