What is Stop the Bleed?

Stop the Bleed, a national campaign from the American College of Surgeons, empowers bystanders to save lives by knowing how to stop bleeding within minutes using techniques like packing the wound, applying pressure, and using a tourniquet. UAB started offering Stop the Bleed courses in 2017, and has provided kits and training to schools and churches around Birmingham, Alabama.

By learning how to Stop the Bleed, you’ll gain the ability to recognize life-threatening bleeding and act quickly and effectively to control bleeding once you learn three quick techniques. Take the Stop the Bleed training course and become empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency happens.
