The Stop the Bleed Story
STOP THE BLEED® is the result of a collaborative effort led by the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) to bring knowledge of bleeding control to the public. Collective efforts using lessons from the Military, helped develop a program to help lay people save lives, utilizing early bleeding control techniques. Through these collaborative efforts through numerous organizations, it became clear that time was a critical factor in outcomes directly related to how quickly bleeding control was achieved. These finding have helped to understand the key role bystanders play as part of the disaster preparedness team & our ability to save lives.
