Military and paramedic experiences have proven that without training and repeated practice haemorrhage control products can be ineffective.
When death can occur in less than 5 minutes from massive blood loss, the ability to competently apply tourniquets and haemostatic dressings in the high stress of emotion and adrenaline is critical.
This training is a vital part of first aid, tactical combat casualty care (TCCC), medic and paramedic programs. TraumaSim's haemorrhage control Part Task Trainers are an integral part of this.
