Catastrophic Bleed Management Workshop

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 Workshop Training 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”

Deep cut first ad trainingImagine 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, customer or a member of the public 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 catastrophic 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 one 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!
