Bleeding Control for Community Responders
Unfortunately, there are more mass casualty events in the United States and around the globe due to serious accidents or active threat incidents. Citizens are generally the first to arrive on a scene before 911 has been called and professional EMS providers arrive. These critical moments can make the difference between life and death for individuals with critical injuries. This online course trains bystanders how to administer care to others with confidence in a life-threatening situation, where a victim, or victims, may lose their life due to a serious injury.
Who should take this class?
Designed for community members or any person who wants to know how to perform bleeding control for hemorrhaging wounds in an emergency setting, while waiting for EMS providers to arrive.
The online portion must be completed prior to the scheduled hands-on session. Students must arrive with online course completed and the certificate of completion printed out.
Bleeding Control for Community Responders is the eLearning component of SBC blended learning. It uses a variety of eLearning assets such as dramatizations, eSimulations, animations, self-directed learning, and interactive activities to teach students SBC knowledge and skills. After completing the eLearning component, students will attend a structured Instructor led course that focuses on meaningful skills practice, debriefing, team scenarios, discussions of local protocols and skills testing.
After taking this course you will be able to:
- Describe the best techniques for the management of hemorrhaging wounds
- Understand wound compression and packing using hemostatic agents
- Learn correct application of elastic bands both for wound compression and as a tourniquet
- Know how to create and apply improvised bandages
- Understand how community responders and emergency service providers should work together to treat bleeding victims
- Take steps to maintain personal safety for the public and responders
Part 1 (eLearning) must be paired with a hands-on skill testing session (Part 2) with an SBC Instructor. Students who successfully complete Part 1 receive a certificate of completion that allows them entrance into a skill testing session. A Superior Bleeding Control for Community Responders course completion card will be issued upon successful completion of both parts.
