Quick! The person next to you just collapsed in cardiac arrest, or is bleeding to death from a traumatic injury!
You have only 2 minutes to save a life! Do you know what to do?
MedStar crews responded to 799 cardiac arrest calls in the past 12 months – Bystander CPR is one of the greatest predictors of cardiac arrest survival.
Major bleeding can lead to death in a matter of minutes. Knowledgeable bystanders can implement quick bleeding control techniques before EMS arrival.
Join MedStar, Fort Worth Fire Department and Cook Children’s in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square on May 23rd from 12n-1p or 5p-6p for hands only CPR and Stop the Bleed training.
