Bleedstopper Catastrophic Bleeding at a Glance

This course tells you how to control catastrophic bleeding using the BleedStopper catastrophic bleeding control kits.

Tourniquets and Haemostatic Dressings if used correctly are now allowed to be used in first aid after the recommendations of the 2015 ERC first aid changes and the 2017 Tourniquet changes. Catastrophic bleeding is life-threatening and can kill in minutes so having a fast and effective method of stopping bleeding is a must have life skill in the workplace, out and about and at home.   

This course covers the main types of commercial tourniquets including the CAT, MAT, SOFT T, SAM XT, STAT and Improvised Tourniquets. Haemostatic dressings from Celox, Quick Clot, Axiostat and other Haemostatic dressings and powders are also included. The course also covers the use of trauma dressings including the Air Wrap dressings.

We also offer courses in Major Incident Trauma and First Person On Scene covering advanced medical care.
