Event Description

Capital MRC Until Help Arrives (CHPR0020)

Trauma is the leading cause of death in Americans under age 46 Life-threatening (traumatic) injuries require immediate action to stop someone from dying. While the Nation’s emergency medical responders are quick to arrive, any delay between injury and the initiation of care can result in death. Those nearest to someone with life-threatening injuries are best positioned to provide the first care, which should focus on the most essential actions, including moving someone away from ongoing danger, stopping life-threatening bleeding, positioning the injured so they can breathe, keeping them warm, and providing comfort. This course is designed to educate the public about the important role it plays in providing these potentially life-saving interventions prior to the arrival of emergency services.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

• Use simple and effective skills to save lives.

• Communicate with 9-1-1 operators effectively.

• Act to protect the injured from further harm.

• Position the injured.

• Stop life-threatening bleeding.

• Provide emotional support.
