Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma. The sooner the severe bleeding is controlled the greater the chance someone has surviving. The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Stop the Bleed® program continues to empower the general public to make a difference in a life-threatening emergency by teaching them the basic techniques of bleeding control.
