Physicians practice bleeding control during Stop The Bleed course.
January 8, 2019

We live in a world where terrorism and the violent actions of unstable individuals are very real and becoming increasingly more frequent and victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes. The basics of first aid and how to control severe bleeding are important skills for everyone to know. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, this video will empower you to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching the basic techniques of bleeding control. In this video, Justin Harper, assistant chief for training and education with the Denver Health Paramedic Division, gives you the information you need to save your own life or the lives of those around you if the worst happens.
