Stop the Bleed training offered to ECU faculty and staff

ECU faculty and staff now have access to free training that could one day help them save the life of a student or colleague.

Stop the Bleed course training is part of a national campaign that offers basic bleeding control techniques such as direct pressure, wound packing and tourniquet application for the general public. The free course is now offered once a month to all ECU faculty and staff.

Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death after traumatic injury in the U.S. Life-threatening bleeding can occur in numerous situations such as mass casualty events, motor vehicle accidents, farming injuries or accidents at home. Similar to CPR, bleeding control can be managed by individuals present at the scene who can immediately control bleeding using their hands and/or equipment that may be available.

All classes will be instructed by Brody School of Medicine students and held in room 1504 located on the first floor of Laupus Library.

Classes can accommodate up to 30 participants and will be offered on the following dates and times:

Sept. 6                  3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Oct. 3                    3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Nov. 1                   3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
