Pre-Con #4




Dan Batsie, BA, NREMT-P

Portions of this class will be held outside… rain or shine. This is a hands-on class and you WILL get messy! Bleeding is a common cause of trauma related death and unfortunately up to 80% of the time these deaths are preventable. This class will give students a comprehensive review in how to treat external bleeding. We will review the science and pathophysiology of hemorrhage, but more importantly we will provide a realistic, hands on practice session designed to prepare each participant for the rigors of real world hemorrhage control. Specific topics will include tourniquet placement, hemostatic agents and wound packing. As simulated blood will be used, students are encouraged to dress in clothing capable of being soiled and be prepared to work in an outside environment. (NYS CME: All Levels – Trauma)
