Why earn “Pressure Points?”

Blood loss is a leading cause of death for trauma victims. Death from blood loss, especially from arm or leg wounds, has been identified as a potentially preventable cause of death. Immediate actions for life threatening bleeding should be centered around the application of aggressive direct pressure while a public access trauma kit is retrieved. Striving to earn “Pressure Points” is a constant reminder to all that aggressive direct pressure may be required to help slow or stop bleeding while a Public Access Trauma Kit is retrieved.
