Beyond Bleed Control: Prioritizing Trauma Care Using M.A.R.C.H.
Returning Campus Safety Conference presenter Corina Bilger will discuss the M.A.R.C.H. mnemonic device used in combat for improving trauma care.
Do you remember everything you learned from your Stop the Bleed (STB) class? Lessons from the battlefield remind us that external bleeding is one of three of the most preventable deaths.
It’s always a good time to refresh and learn what may be new to you in the world of trauma care. In this one hour class, we will revisit the STB basics, as well as first aid kit must-haves and nice-to-haves.
Viewers will also learn about the “M” in M.A.R.C.H. (Massive hemorrhage; Airway control; Respiratory support; Circulation; Hypothermia and Head injury) to help make STB skills “stick.”
Anyone can save someone from bleeding to death — you just have to be prepared!
Viewers will learn:
- A refresh on STB and how to perform the skills
- How to build bleed control kits and how to use the “things” in them
- About the “M” in M.A.R.C.H.; not all bleeding is life-threatening — learn how to know the difference
