Traumatic injuries are often sudden and unexpected. They can occur due to falls, accidents and intentional violence. The #1 cause of preventable death after injury is uncontrollable bleeding. Learning how to “Stop the Bleed” can help increase the chances of survival following traumatic injury.
Lane Regional Medical Center is offering free Stop the Bleed training to businesses and organizations to teach individuals how to save lives in a bleeding emergency until professional help arrives.
Taught by Dr. Jamie Bohanon, with Lane Surgery Group, this free course teaches basic bleeding control techniques including how to correctly apply pressure, dress a wound, and apply a tourniquet.
For more information or to schedule a free Stop the Bleed training course for your employees or members, call Liz Pardi Sagely at (225)270-5821.
