Advanced Bleeding Control

The ASHI Advanced Bleeding Control training program is intended for individuals who desire or are required to become trained in the use of commercial and improvised control devices for the immediate management of severe external bleeding. This program can be used for standalone training on bleeding control or as a supplement to basic first aid training. The goal of this training program is to help students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to respond in a severe bleeding emergency.

Bleeding Control for the Injured teaches participants the basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with pressure bandages, a tourniquet and gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents. The course is designed for NON-tactical law enforcement officers, firefighters, security personnel, teachers and other civilians requiring this basic training.

“The response to a traumatic incident, whether involving an active shooter or some other cause of injury, in fact, begins with bystander response.”

Bleeding Control for the injured exposes participants to basic life-saving medical interventions, including bleeding control with pressure bandages, a tourniquet and gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents.

The course is designed for all lay rescuers who wish additional knowledge or may be part of a response to a mass casualty incident, where a limited number of responders may need to treat larger numbers of bleeding patients.
