Stop The Bleed Month

Every minute counts. Someone who is severely bleeding can bleed to death in as little as 3-5 minutes. May is Stop The Bleed month, this month we’re raising awareness of the importance of bleeding control skills and equipment.

Knowing what to do in the event of a mass haemorrhage is crucial for survival.

The hypoperfusion caused by late haemorrhage control can lead to Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome (MODS)(1). One study found that almost half of all patients with severe traumatic injuries suffered from MODS(1).
As such, early haemorrhage control is essential in the management of patients suffering major trauma. Providing personnel at risk of encountering major trauma with highly performing equipment meeting professional standards for trauma management is essential.

Our Bleeding Control Kits are designed for quick and effective control of massive haemorrhage. Including the popular DNIPRO Tourniquet, this haemostatic trauma solution that has been forged in the midst of the RUsso-Ukrainian Conflict. Achieving full occlusion in the shortest time possible is critical. Our kits are designed by emergency medicine professionals with efficiency and effectiveness in mind.
