Knowing how to stop the bleed can help save a life.
Launched in October of 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action that encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
Our guests include Melissa Barnes a trauma nurse at Providence Holy Cross medical Center and Doctor Richard Moore a trauma surgeon at Providence Holy Cross medical Center.
In this podcast they discuss the specific techniques used as well as special tourniquets people can have on them in case of an emergency.
Classes on Stop the Bleed as well as getting tourniquets are available on Stopthebleed.org.
