EL PASO, Texas – As the region’s only Level 1 Trauma Center, University Medical Center of El Paso (UMC) is reminding the public of the importance of knowing how to control bleeding in case of an emergency. May is National Stop The Bleed Month, a national public awareness campaign to improve victim survival following mass shootings and other acts of mass violence. The Stop The Bleed program, which was founded by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), encourages people to become immediate responders until professional help arrives. You can be trained to save a life by:
• Applying pressure with hands
• Packing wound and pressing
An interactive Stop The Bleed course can be found online at stopthebleed.org.
