Free
Applying a tourniquet to stop the bleed during first aid training

Who: 

During a crisis, no matter how quickly professional emergency responders arrive, bystanders are always first on the scene. In this Stop the Bleed Class, people of all ages learn how to take simple actions immediately to help save a life.

What:

The course combines lecture and part hands-on skills training. In it, you’ll learn how to:

  • Recognize life-threatening bleeding
  • Apply direct pressure to wounds
  • Pack a wound
  • Apply a tourniquet

The course includes a PowerPoint presentation, as well as hands-on skills training in applying direct pressure to wounds, wound packing and tourniquet application.

You don’t need any prior medical knowledge or training to attend. This one-time course provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to help save a life. All age groups can attend. Everyone receives a certificate at the end of class.

When/Where:

Courses are held every other month, from 5:30-6:30 pm, in The University of Tennessee Medical Center’s Health Information Center Conference Room. You can find the Health Information Center in the hospital’s main lobby, just down from the cafeteria.

Why:

A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes. Therefore, it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide the first level of care.
