Get trained, get equipped, be ready, be empowered, spread the word. STOP THE BLEED®.
Why it Matters
Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma.
Average time to bleed out: 2 to 5 minutes
Average time for 1st responders to arrive: 7 to 10 minutes
