Why does this matter?

Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma.*

Approximate time to bleed out: 2 to 5 minutes

Average time for 1st responders to arrive: 7 to 10 minutes

Bystanders can fill the gap with STOP THE BLEED
