Oklahoma Trauma Experts Offer Life-Saving Training
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma - In the aftermath of the recent massacre in Florida, Oklahoma trauma experts are offering free life-saving training.
It's called "Stop the Bleed" and it's being held at OU Med.
Nurses say you never know when you might need the skill to stop a person from bleeding.
They said tourniquets can really save a life.
"You can’t be afraid. They’re going to be screaming and telling you it hurts it hurts and it does hurt but it already hurts. They are injured they have a significant injury. This is going to save their life," said Pediatric Trauma Coordinator Lindsey Henson.
Medical experts are also teaching people to identify a wound and see how deep it is.
OU Medicine said these are skills everyone can use.
