Bleeding Control Course

Advanced Bleeding Control courses will be offered for FREE

By the University of Virginia Health System's Life Support Learning Center 

In light of recent tragedies involving trauma, a nationwide push for increased public education on bleeding control for victims has emerged.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traumatic injury is one of the leading causes of death for people under 50 years of age in the United States. A large portion of those deaths are from severe bleeding – the most treatable cause of death due to trauma.

American Safety & Health Institute’s Advanced Bleeding Control is designed to provide detailed information on the control of severe external bleeding, including the use of direct pressure, commercial pressure bandages, tourniquets, and packed dressings.

Advanced Bleeding Control is designed for groups and individuals who have a greater than average chance of witnessing an injury event in which heavy bleeding occurs. Upon completion of this course you will be trained to provide lifesaving bleeding control for injured persons until medical professionals and first responders can arrive.
