Stop the Bleed


Did you know that the top cause of preventable death in trauma is bleeding? It is estimated that twenty percent of people who have died from traumatic injuries could have survived with on-site and immediate bleeding control. Bleeding could be caused by injuries from a car crash, an injury at home or work, or in a mass casualty incident. Click here for step-by-step instructions to Stop the Bleed

Stop the Bleed is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and Hartford Consensus, providing individuals with the training, tools, and knowledge necessary to stop life-threatening bleeding during the moments before first responders arrive.
