This course is designed for the medical or non-medical person who would like to learn how to deal with traumatic injury, such as bleeding control, gunshot wounds, etc.
How long will it take for EMS to arrive if you or a loved one suffers a traumatic injury? Make sure that you have the skills to stay alive until they arrive.If you own a gun, carry one or would like to learn essential skills to take care of yourself or a family member in case of an emergent situation, this class is for you!
The Defensive Medicine course will teach you to effectively manage life threatening injuries resulting from a traumatic event until professional emergency medical services arrive. Topics of instruction include bleeding control, airway management, shock and brain injuries and other medical issues likely to arise in the aftermath of a life threatening attack or other critical incident. Do you dedicate as much time to training for the treating of wounds as you do to the inflicting of them? The life you save will probably be your own or that of a family member.
