Quick!  The person next to you just collapsed in cardiac arrest, or is bleeding to death from a traumatic injury!

You have only 2 minutes to save a life!  Do you know what to do?

MedStar crews responded to 1,227 cardiac arrest calls in the past 12 monthsOnly 510 of these patients received Bystander CPR, one of the greatest predictors of cardiac arrest survival. 

Major bleeding can lead to death in a matter of minutes. Knowledgeable bystanders can implement quick bleeding control techniques before EMS arrival.

MedStar is offering a free Stop the Bleed and Hands Only CPR class on Saturday, June 11th.  Due to a FANTASTIC response to this class offering (over 325 registered so far!), the didactic portion of the class will be done on-line, at the convenience of the participant, with the practical sessions scheduled for one-hour increments starting at 8a and running through 6p at our headquarters: 2900 Alta Mere Drive, Fort Worth.  

Attendees must complete the video training prior to being scheduled for their 1 hour segment for practical skills instruction.

Be more than a bystander – be a #citizenresponder !
