On Sept. 18, the Wright State College of Nursing and Health hosted an hourlong training session for students, faculty and staff to save lives.
Participants were trained to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. They learned the ABC’s of bleeding: alerting 911, finding the blood source and applying a compress.
“I had heard about packing wounds but know I can do that,” said Branden Kappes, a freshman pre-nursing major.
Each participant received a certificate of completion. The Stop the Bleed campaign has trained more than 1 million people around the world.
Two additional Stop the Bleed training sessions are planned for later this semester.
