SAN ANTONIO –
University Health System, a KSAT Community partner, will host a free one-hour Stop the Bleed class with its trauma team Tuesday, May 28, at 4 p.m at University Hospital.
In a life-threatening emergency, seconds count and it may fall to a bystander to keep a badly bleeding person alive until help arrives.
Stop the Bleed is a nationwide campaign aimed at teaching everyone how to stop bleeding and save lives in an emergency.
A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss within five minutes.
