Bleeding Control

B-Con LogoWho can respond and control bleeding?
There are three types of responders who, when properly trained, are crucial to saving victims with severe bleeding:

  • Trauma Professionals: hospitalists; emergency department physicians, nurses, technicians, and trauma surgeons
  • Professional First Responders: Law enforcement, emergency medical service personnel, fire fighters, and rescue workers
  • Immediate Responders: civilian bystanders present at the scene who perform external bleeding control for victims at the point of wounding before the arrival of professional responders.

In June 2016, SMRTAC trained over twenty individuals to be B-Con instructors in their local regions.  If your community has a need to educate a group of individuals, if you want to become a course instructor, or already are an instructor, we have resources for you.

The only thing more tragic than a death from bleeding…is a death that could have been prevented.
