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 lecture selection is taken from the TC2 course, available online. This 122-minute lesson is accompanied by the introduction to Dr. Shertz and Crisis Medicine (10 minutes), and is included with each full course, available NOW. Note, the full courses include step-by-step skills stations of each technique discussed in this lecture, ie direct pressure, bandaging, tourniquet application, and wound packing.

Comprehensive, Well Executed Online Training.The effective presentation of specialized skills via online training poses significant challenges, Dr. Shertz minimizes those limitations through his mastery of the subject matter and experience as an educator. Dr. Shertz refers to his coursework as "encyclopedic", I would echo that compliment, the material is comprehensive, well presented, and rich with knowledge. While not a substitute for in person training nor real world experience, the course is a worthwhile complement to continuing education and/or an ideal solution for initial training in Tactical Casualty Care.
Essential Training That WILL SAVE LIVES!Dr. Shertz packs an incredible amount of information into this course in an extremely coherent, easy to follow and engaging way. The material covered here goes well beyond basic first aid and critical wound training. From proper usage of tourniquets to recognizing the key elements of massive hemorrhaging, Dr. Shertz covers it all. As an officer with the NYPD, I have received some of the best law enforment training in the world. Part of that training includes an eight hour course on tourniquets and treating gun shot wounds in the field. This course makes our training look like it was read straight out of a children’s pop up book. If any officer takes their job seriously and truly cares about saving the life of a gun shot victim, fellow officer or even their own life then this course is a must watch.
