Stop the Bleed

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.
