Traumatic injuries are often sudden and unexpected. They can occur due to falls, accidents and intentional violence. The #1 cause of preventable death after injury is uncontrollable bleeding. Learning how to “Stop the Bleed” can help increase the chances of survival following traumatic injury. Lane Regional Medical Center is offering free Stop the Bleed training to encourage and educate bystanders to become trained and equipped to save lives in a bleeding emergency until professional help arrives. Taught by Dr. Fredrick “Jamie” Bohanon, General Surgeon with Lane Surgery Group, this free course teaches basic bleeding control techniques including how to correctly apply pressure, dress a wound and apply a tourniquet.
