Stop the Bleed training for Pre-Health Students

The ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding in someone who is injured and effectively assist that person can save a life. A person can bleed to death in under five minutes, and it often takes longer than that for medical personnel to arrive. Members of the public can be the difference between life and death in a trauma situation if they know what to do. STOP THE BLEED is a program that teaches basic bleeding-control techniques including wound packing and tourniquet applications. This program is usually taught to medical students however we have the opportunity for Hunter College students to learn these techniques in classes taught by physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine.
