Hemorrhage Control – SELECTION
Massive Hemorrhage is Always Bad.
Massive hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death from injuries. How much blood loss is too much? Drawing on real-world examples, students learn what they can do in a high-risk, pre-hospital setting to control bleeding. A new understanding of and proper application of direct pressure is taught, as well as bandaging, application of proven commercially available tourniquets, improvised tourniquets, simple wound packing with cotton gauze, and hemostatic agents.
This course is best viewed after the Wound Ballistics selection, but ultimately is a stand-alone lesson and can be watched without the background on what projectiles do to bodies.
Note: This selection is taken from the TC2 course, available online. This 105-minute lesson is accompanied by the introduction to Dr. Shertz and Crisis Medicine (10 minutes), and is included with each full course, available NOW.
