POSTPONED - Hadassah Associates
Hands Only CPR & Stop the Bleed

Sunday, March 22, 2020 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

For years, Hadassah has been on the fore-front of providing up-to-date and new ideas in emergency medicine. EMS Communities from around the world have trained with Hadassah Hospital’s providers to learn to improve outcomes for their patients.

There are two areas in which non-EMS personnel can successfully have significant participation. One is stopping serious bleeding. The other is to provide CPR to someone whose heart has stopped beating correctly.

This program will teach the attendees skills to address those two life-threatening emergencies. Utilizing a nationally created program called Stop The Bleed (STB), we’ll train participants to help save lives with several techniques to stop bleeding. Using the American Heart Association’s Take-10 CPR program, we’ll provide participants with the basic skills of CPR.

After each of the presentations, attendees will have hands-on opportunities to practice these skills on mannikins or simulators. You should plan to be actively engaged.  During STB, participants will have opportunities to demonstrate how to stop various levels of bleeding. During Take-10, there’s actual hands-on CPR being given. We’ll get on the floor next to simulated victims and practice doing Hands-Only CPR.

Come dressed comfortably and plan to participate!
