Stop the Bleed Workshop
As part of the national Stop the Bleed® campaign, the Inova Virts Miller Family Emergency and Trauma Center at Inova Loudoun Hospital is hosting a free, in-person workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 4 to 6 p.m. This free course is designed for community members who may find themselves at the scene of an emergency.
 
During an emergency, no matter how quickly emergency professionals respond, the individuals on-scene are best positioned to assist and potentially stop life-threatening blood loss. This is critical because a person who is bleeding profusely can die from blood loss within five minutes. 
 
Workshop attendees will enhance their emergency preparedness by learning the difference between bleeding and life-threatening blood loss, and how to react to both. Participants will receive hands-on training to learn how to apply tourniquets and pack wounds.
The workshop will be held at Inova Loudoun Hospital, 44055 Riverside Pkwy., The Ladies Board Education Center, Suite 160, Leesburg. Follow signs for the South Hospital Entrance.  Free on-site parking is available. 
 
Participation is free but space is limited. To register visit inova.org/stopthebleed
