A person can easily bleed to death before an ambulance arrives – Do you know how to stop catastrophic bleeding?

When blood is spurting out, you know time is of the essence, you know you need to stop the bleeding, you’ve got a tourniquet – should you use it? will a tourniquet be right for that injury? You have military combat bandages, are they better suited than the tourniquet …..more and more blood is pumping out, have you decided? do you know what to use?major bleeding first aid courses

Wait, there’s haemostatic dressings too, and there’s granules… all this stuff is geared towards stopping catastrophic bleeding but a person can bleed to death if you don’t know what do, what to use and how to use it.

In 2015 the European Resuscitation Council produced guidelines for first aid as well as resuscitation. Part of these new guidelines cover First Aid for Traumatic Injuries.

This comes in three parts.
Control of bleeding

Haemostatic dressings

Use of a tourniquet

We have taken these three elements to formulate a training course based on the following 2016 HSE guidance:

The recent European Resuscitation Council review of a number of first aid protocols suggests there is major bleeding first aid coursea need in certain circumstances for first aid kits to contain haemostatic dressings and tourniquets. The view of HSE is that the inclusion of these items is based on your First Aid Needs Assessment.

Where your needs assessment has identified a requirement for tourniquets and/or haemostatic dressings you should make sure:

  • Your haemostatic dressings are always in date;
  • Workplace first aiders are trained by a competent provider in when to apply a tourniquet and the correct technique to use. For example, competent training providers should be teaching clinical protocols as described by the Faculty of Pre Hospital Care; and,
  • Workplace first aiders have training in when and how a haemostatic dressing is applied.

Examples of sectors that may benefit from additional training in the use of tourniquets based on RIDDOR data include: construction, agriculture, forestry and some aspects of manufacturing.

The Training Course for First Responders and High Risk Category Workers

Its OK having the first aid kit and all the body armour with safety aids galore, but not knowing what to do in a tragedy is a totally different matter,.

“all the gear and no idea”

Imagine this, You hear a scream, a horrible shout, blood curdling yell, the sound of an horrific human noise, you drop everything and rush to the scene.

Your work mate or friend, is on their knees, covered in blood, they fall on the floor, life blood pumping out, soaking away into the ground where they lay…..possibly bleeding to death. – It is only a matter of time.

It takes vital seconds for you to grasp the situation and you know your fast effective action can save his life.

In all honesty, do you really know what to do in an emergency situation?

Let’s be real, even if you have done your health and safety course – can you stop catastrophic bleeding? – even if you

chain saw accident first aid courseshave a first aid kit, do you know how to use the stuff in there? because bandages and plasters are unlikely help a sliced artery.

When, or if, you did your First Aid at Work Course, did you learn how to deal with real trauma? Did the course cover catastrophic bleeding?

FAW courses don’t always deal with that higher level of risk such as severe bleeding caused by a chain saw accident, severing a limb in a farming incident, arterial bleed as a result of a knife or glass attack

This is your opportunity

We, are running a training course to specifically deal with this trauma.
How to use the right equipment and medical disposables that will stop catastroic bleeding.

You will be taught the very same methods, of stopping the bleeding, using haemostatic dressings and a tourniquet, used by the military in battle ….and they don’t waste time!

It is a three hour course, we don’t do chalk n’ talk, no boring powerpoint presentations, we get stuck in, hands-on and deliver a very enjoyable session.

Tourniquet training. The different types of tourniquets, what they can do and what they can’t do. When to use a tourniquet and why use a tourniquet – this can be the difference between life and death.
Haemostatic dressing. These should be in every first aid kit where there is a risk of severe bleeding.What is an haemostatic dressing?, what do they do that ordinary bandages don’t.

Train and practice now, because you will have to get it right if someone is seriously bleeding and the instructions don’t make sense!

The course is at £55 per person. We have limited seats available.
