CATASTROPHIC BLEED MANAGEMENT

Developed and based on the military medics one-day Battlefield Casualty Drills Course the Catastrophic Bleed Management Course is aimed at teaching people how to provide life – saving treatment before the arrival of the emergency services in the event of an incident.

While many people know how to react to a medical emergency such as a heart attack and asthma attack, a different approach is needed to act effectively after a catastrophic injury from a bomb blast, gunshot or stabbing.

This course can also be used for workers in remote areas where definitive medical care is not minutes away but hours.

The course instructs delegates in the use of first care dressings, haemostatic dressings, CAT Tourniquets and how to improvise dressings from what you have around you when no first aid equipment is available.

The course is designed for either security staff working in the Uk or in hostile environments, forest workers, arborists, construction workers, expedition leaders and companies who feel their staff would benefit from this type of training.
