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 months – Only 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 !
