Additional Providers for CPR/AED & First Aid Training:
No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes, therefore it is important to quickly stop the blood loss. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.
You may be able to save a life by taking these simple actions immediately after the trauma.
