Less than 5 minutes to live...
That’s it, less than 5 minutes to live if someone is suffering a major bleeding trauma. Unless someone on the scene has training and the right first aid products. Then the chances of survival are dramatically improved. Many lives have been needlessly lost because of a lack of preparedness. Don’t let this happen at your work-sites, schools, restaurants, shops, and offices.
"Blood loss is the leading cause of preventable death in multiple casualty events, like mass shootings, terrorist attacks and earthquakes. Significant external bleeding can also result from everyday events such as a motorcycle crash, or industrial accident. Rapid control of bleeding at the scene of the event can be life-saving.” www.bleedingcontrol.org
When accidents happen others must step in to help. With the right first aid items at hand a victim could receive assistance that may save their life or limb. NorMed has the first aid products specifically designed to save lives in traumatic injuries. We’ve recently added 3 new items that are highly rated for use in major bleeding traumas; #2990 SAM-XT Extremity Tourniquet (CAT type design), #1871 & #1872 ChitoSAM hemostatic dressings, and #2991 SAM Chest Seal chest wound dressing with valve.
