Tragedy can happen in an instant, and OU Medicine experts are offering a free course on how to save the life of someone bleeding to death through a program called Stop the Bleed.

Courses will be held in conference room B3 of the Samis Family Education Center auditorium located adjacent to The Children’s Hospital, 1200 Childrens Ave. Each free training session will begin with a 30 minute registration period followed by the one-hour training.

Following a traumatic injury, major blood loss is responsible for more than 35 percent of prehospital deaths and more than 40 percent of deaths that occur within the first 24 hours of hospital admission, according to the National Trauma Institute.

Doctors and nurses at the Trauma One Center at OU Medicine are joining with the American College of Surgeons to provide simple, lifesaving training for local churches, businesses, schools and others as part of the national Stop the Bleed initiative. The Stop the Bleed course was developed following the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. The program’s focus is that with the proper training, anyone can save a life after an injury such as a laceration or bullet wound. Simple tactics such as how to apply pressure to a wound and using a tourniquet properly is taught to those who attend.
