What will I learn about how to stop the bleeding in serious trauma?
Learn what it really means to stop the bleeding and how vital a first aid skill it is. The Australian Resuscitation Council, the body who sets the standards for first aid training in Australia has in its latest guidelines said that the control of life-threatening bleeding takes precedence over any other issue in an emergency first aid response.
Our unique approach will show you a plan to develop the confidence to effectively control arterial haemorrhage with a range of new and excitingly effective products like the CAT tourniquet or the emergency or Israeli bandage.
Do the maths, 5 to 6 litres of blood in the body. Heart beats 70 times a minute and ejects about 70 ml of blood. That equals 4.9 litres of blood circulated by the heart each minute. So your heart can eject your entire blood volume in minutes from arterial bleeding. Yes I understand the variables, but the principle remains the same. You can read all about this blood loss principle that shows the urgency required to stop the bleed
Use Specialised Equipment
You will also learn a lot of simple techniques to manage serious bleeding with your hands, how to pack a wound and use a range of easy to use equipment found in our Shark Attack Pack discussed here in the media or our unique Stop the Bleeding trauma package designed for high risk trades, farms and workplaces.
