This workshop will introduce participants to an array of products on the commercial market that have been proven on the battlefield in the treatment of massive hemorrhage.

 As a result, many lives have been saved by both military medics and civilian responders.  These basic devices are simple enough for the average soldier to use and inexpensive enough for anyone to afford.  

As a result, they are essential components of both the individual first aid kit (IFAK) and family emergency medical kit.  

Principle equipment to be addressed during the workshop will include the following: Tourniquet, Pressure Bandage, Clotting Dressing, Occlusive Dressing, Tension Pneumothorax Needle, and Nasopharyngeal Airway.  While training material will be provided for the most part, each participant or couple will be required to purchase a reusable tourniquet prior to the start of the workshop.  The workshop will run for one hour.
