Did you Know?
Accidental injury is a leading cause of death in New York. Uncontrolled hemorrhage (bleeding) is a leading cause of preventable traumatic death. In rural settings, up to 80% of deaths may occur in the prehospital setting, commonly from either fatal head injuries or uncontrolled hemorrhage.
Much like training of the public in CPR and use of automatic defibrillators (AED’s), research has shown that bystanders, with little to no medical training, can become heroic lifesavers. Improving public awareness about how to stop severe bleeding can become the beginning of the trauma care chain of survival and make the difference between life and death for an injured person.
The ACS Committee on Trauma believes that similar to CPR and AED training, bleeding control training programs should be available to the public and, as with automatic external defibrillators, bleeding control equipment should be readily available in public and private locations so people can easily and rapidly access the equipment.
