Bleeding Control for the Injured
In September of 2014, NAEMT announced a new education course to teach civilians evidence-based, life-saving bleeding control techniques shown to dramatically increase casualty survival. Called“Bleeding Control for the Injured,” aka “B-Con,” this course was developed in response to the Hartford Consensus led by Dr. Lenworth Jacobs, and at the request of Dr. Norman McSwain, who served as a member of the Hartford Consensus working group.
The ‘Stop the Bleed’ campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff, The White House. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies and man-made and natural disasters. Advances made by military medicine and research in hemorrhage control during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have informed the work of this initiative which exemplifies translation of knowledge back to the homeland to the benefit of the general public.
