Stop the bleed month

Post by dtwn92 » Tue May 07, 2019 1:30 am

Wanted to know, who knew about this, being a thing this month?

Who has taken this class in the past or who teaches this class?

Here is a link to the site and you can find one locally to you this month.

These should be free, if you find one charging you, look further.

I’ve been posting a bleeding tip of the day on Facebook, and teach the course for my hospital.

I have taken this class and I teach this class.

Unofficially is that it does lack chest trauma.

If you read the report that it was based off of then you understand that chest trauma in the civ world is a danger.

I was checking to see if program was posted here or not. I put it up on another forum that I frequent. I'm planning to take the class when the weather stabilizes a little.
