Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death due to trauma according to Trinity’s Trauma Program Manager.

To change this statistic, professionals are teaching people how to stop the bleed.

If someone is bleeding uncontrollably – the first thing to do is apply pressure.

It’s best to apply pressure with gauze but if you don’t have that – professionals suggest using what you have – like a shirt.

You also need to know what type of bleed you’re dealing with.

For example, if it’s a life threatening bleed – you want to apply a tourniquet.

If you don’t have one on hand – things like a hair tie or belt can substitute.

“We want the community at large to be prepared and be able to assist and take care of the people that they’re with before help gets there,” said Rhonda Gunderson, Trinity Health Trauma Program Manager.
