Stop The Bleed
Presented by Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center
As San Luis Obispo County’s designated Trauma Center, our Trauma team is using the “Stop the Bleed” program (created after the Sandy Hook shootings) to educate the lay community on how to save lives after a mass shooting or other trauma. Most gunshot victims don’t necessarily die from the actual gunshot, but rather as a result of bleeding to death….which can happen in a matter of minutes. Often medical professionals cannot respond fast enough to stop the bleeding. Just as the public has been taught CPR for years to help save a loved one, the medical community now wants to teach them how to stop the bleed while waiting for help to arrive. Our trauma team is offering this training free to schools, churches, businesses and any other groups who are interested. You can also find more information at: www.bleedingcontrol.org
