Default Stop the Bleed, Bleeding Control Class

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. Stop the Bleed partners with local instructors, to offer a no cost bleeding control class.

I've seen some people on social media post that they have taken the hour and a half class and they seemed pretty happy with it. I figured for the price of free, I'd check one out. I've been checking for the last couple months and there hasn't been any locally, until now. The UC Davis Department of Surgery is hosting classes in Sacramento. They have 6 classes scheduled, one a month, starting next month. Each class is limited to 20 participants and starts at 7:00 PM. The instructor listed for the class is David Shatz M.D.. A quick internet search shows that he is a trauma surgeon. His bio on UC Davis says he is a nationally recognized expert in disaster response, having worked and taught within the federal search and rescue system for over fifteen years.

The dates are,

05/01/18
06/27/18
07/12/18
08/15/18
09/13/18
10/04/18

The classes are being held at,

UC Davis Medical Center Facilities Services and Support Building (FSSB)
4800 2nd Avenue
Sacramento CA 95662

Here is the link to register for one of the UC Davis classes.

And this is the Stop the Bleed page that you can also use to look for other classes, or to sign up if the direct link I posted doesn't work.

This is a great find, thank you!

Does anyone else have recommendations for pre hospital trauma related training in the Sacramento area? I know of a couple but the dates that are being held for them don't work out.

Thank you OP! I was just doing a search on CGN for First Aid/Trauma classes and came across this.

If anyone else can recommend a trauma aid class (including gunshot and other trauma) beyond the basic First Aid/CPR/AED training, please let me know.

A good med kit is of little use without training, and it is something I wanted to add in addition to firearms training classes.

Default Great Class!

I attended tonight's class at UCD Med Center - it was so helpful! I met Dr. Shatz (though he didn't stay through the class). It was taught by Dr. Leshikar and two residents (one trains PJs at Travis) - all very informative. I've taken First Aid courses, etc - but this is different and you really must take it and tell your family and friends to go also.

I can tell you now that if you take this class and you or someone close to you suffers a grievous bleeding wound - including massive arterial gushing (other than in the torso - you'll understand why when you take the course) - you or they will have a MUCH greater chance of survival!

I am going to insist my daughters attend and will be supplying them CAT Gen7 tourniquets and QuikClot gauze pacs.

That's awesome! I attended a class after I had originally posted about it and I also found it super helpful. That class was given by Dr. Shatz and one resident. He did mention that he was recruiting other doctors to help with classes.

It was so nice to have a doctor give the class, instead of someone just reading from the training material. It's a huge wealth of knowledge and experience to have access to and Dr. Shatz was happy to answer questions, share his experience and some pretty good stories too.

If you're on the fence about taking the class, take it. There's no cost for the class, even the parking is free. And that parking lot is right next to the building the class is in. After you leave the class, you will find yourself shopping for tourniquets and a couple other things, so I guess it's not completely free.

Yep, looks like multiple classes.

You can use this link to search by zip code, or city, for classes close to you.

Indeed! Just ordered a 2-pac or NAR (North American Rescue) CAT Gen7 (Combat Application Tourniquets) for $55'ish. No, they're not cheap compared to other alternatives, but they are the No. 1 choice of the UCD trauma surgeons who taught our class. Also, they leaned toward QuikClot gauze (roll or z-fold) v. pad or granular forms and over Celox (due to their collective familiarity with the former).

Side note: Quikclot uses kaolin (a type of clay) as the clotting agent, Celox uses chitosan (from shrimp shells).

I've also picked up a couple CATs and I did get a SOFTT-W to try. I'd say the CAT is a smidge easier for me to use, but feel the SOFTT-W may have some benefits if stored in a vehicle because of its metal windlass and buckles. The plastic/polymer parts of the CAT seem plenty strong, but I lean towards metal parts for long term storage in a hot vehicle.

I've been using the 20% coupons that eBay has been offering to pick them up, but you definitely need to be careful of counterfeits. I know some people have had trouble with Botach, but I've had good experience with them and I've been happy with the tourniquets I've purchased from their eBay store. Comparing the ones from Botach to known real CATs and SOFTT-Ws, they check out.
