Catastrophic Bleeding Control
One of the most common and potentially preventable causes of traumatic death following major trauma is haemorrhage.
With the modification of the trauma paradigm (<C> ABCDE from ABC) now well established, activities that contribute to ‘C’ for catastrophic haemorrhage continue to develop with the resulting “care bundles”; a group of measures which in the pre-hospital setting, for initial responders, include the following:
- Early recognition
- Rapid haemorrhage control
- Application of topical haemostatic’s
- Reduced on-scene times
Within this 3 hour module, you will be taught on the use of a wide range and type of tourniquets, pressure dressings and haemostatic dressings.
