Presented by Keith Hanson
Learn to Save a Life: GUNSHOT WOUND & TRAUMA FIRST-AID FULL COURSE (4 Hours)
A person that is massively bleeding from a gunshot wound has as little as 2 minutes to live. Don't just stand there—learn techniques anyone can use to buy the precious time needed until EMS arrives. No prior first aid or medical training is needed! In this course you will learn some of the following:
- Scene Safety & Security Considerations
- Treatment of Massive Hemorrhaging
- Treatment of Airway Obstructions
- Treatment of a Tension Pneumothorax
- Tourniquet Staging & Use
- Hemostatic Agents & Antihemorrhagics
- Evisceration Injuries
- What your IFAK should contain
Our Instructors are professionals with years of experience treating these types of injuries on city streets and the battlefield. They have taken the lessons learned from years of experience and are now teaching them in this course. This course was more than 2 years in the making, with the curriculum developed by Rick Hammesfahr, M.D., past chairman of the Curriculum and Examination Board (CEB) for the United States Special Operations Command. Under his guidance, the CEB developed Tactical Medical Emergency protocols and techniques currently being used on the battlefield today.
Guests will receive live instruction from one of our instructors, hands-on demonstrations, and course materials that you can take with you. Register today before seats are sold out.
