Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of death after a mass shooting and similar mass casualty events. Severe bleeding can cause shock or death within five or 10 minutes — before medical help arrives. That’s why the Utah Valley Hospital is hosting a “Stop the Bleed” class to teach members of the public how to stop bleeding in cases of mass injuries.
“Stop the Bleed” is a national injury prevention initiative aimed at teaching members of the public how to control a major hemorrhage before EMS crews arrive — because no matter how quickly emergency responders arrive, bystanders will always be first on the scene.
