A person can bleed to death from severe hemorrhage in as little as 3-5 minutes, faster than many EMS agencies can respond to the scene.
Rapid, public access to bleeding control products reduces time to treatment and saves lives in incidents of severe hemorrhage. This is the basis for the Fieldtex "Stop The Bleed" kits, a product designed to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives.
The Stop The Bleed Module contains the critical medical components needed to control major hemorrhage until EMS can arrive on scene. A diagrammatic Instruction sheet takes you through each step of the bleeding control process.
