Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an event where a response is delayed, can result in death. However, anyone at the incident can become an immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public is encouraged to learn proper bleeding control techniques.
“Stop the bleed and save a life” will explore the research and practical application of bleeding control techniques and provide information on who Essentia Health is partnering with to prevent injuries and improve trauma patients’ outcomes.
The event occurs from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, May 24, at Clyde Iron Works, 2920 W Michigan St., Duluth. From 5-6 p.m., guests can meet with exhibitors and view research posters. Keynote speakers take the stage from 6-7 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public and medical professionals. Learn about bleeding control and the innovative research that is improving trauma care in our communities. RSVP appreciated but not required at www.essentiainstitute.org/rsvp.
Trauma topics include:
. Injury prevention
. Emergency response
