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.
