You Are the Help Until Help Arrives

Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast. Emergency responders aren’t always nearby. You may be able to save a life by taking simple actions immediately. You Are the Help Until Help Arrives. 

According to a recent National Academies of Science study, trauma is the leading cause of death for Americans under age 46. Life-threatening injuries require immediate action to prevent an injured person from dying. Those nearest to someone with life threatening injuries are best positioned to provide first care.

Learn how you can help by taking time for yourself or by teaching your community life saving skills until help arrives. Topics Include: 

  • Calling 9-1-1
  • Safety
  • Stop the Bleed - Torniquet Application
  • Positioning the Injured

Course Overview

This course was developed by University Hospitals Center for Emergency Preparedness and Response.

(CEPR). CEPR has developed this slide set for use by any first responder agency in NJ. This was done so that first responders will gain the required techniques to identify and control life threatening bleeding, understand the THREAT acronym, identify the differences between level 1 and level 2 trauma centers, learn the drive or fly criteria, and the importance of establishing a casualty collection point. The need for this training was identified during the meetings later published as the Hartford Consensus.

Course Objectives
          Provide instruction on how to identify life threatening bleeding. How to provide and practice basic bleeding control techniques with and without training equipment. To provide students with information on equipment used for bleeding control. Describe what definitive care is. To explain the use of equipment in the NJ DOH Bleeding Control Kit and the UASI Bleeding Control Kit. 

Topics
This instructor led entry level program prepares NJ first responders for the following:

  • How to identify life threatening bleeding
  • Provide and practice basic bleeding control techniques
  • Practice with different equipment used for bleeding control
  • Provide information on the selection of bleeding control equipment
  • What is definitive care
  • To teach the use of equipment in the NJ DOH Bleeding Control Kit and The UASI Bleeding Control Kit
