We build and donate (100% ) stop the bleeding kits for rural First Responders.
Near 200,000 people die yearly from bleeding out before they can enter the Golden EMS hour.
If one enters the EMS Golden hour in Blood Loss shock, ( 15 to 20% loss - sever shock begins) their chances of survival go down drastically. A major arterial cut like the Femoral artery, one can bleed to death in less than 5 minutes! Mitigation of an arterial bleed in seconds to minutes can mean the difference between life and death!
We have designed(we are in the 5th generation of the kit and still adding) , built and already donated about 2000 units to First Responders and we have already seen that the kits, with training saves lives. we have donated kits to Responders in Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina.
