Bleeding Control Basics (B-Con) Course

June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Free

Help given by an immediate responder can often make the difference between life and death. The Bleeding Control (B-Con) Basics Course is designed for those who have little or no medical training, but who may be called upon to provide initial trauma care and bleeding control prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). This course is designed to educate and prepare community members on what to do in a bleeding emergency. It includes a class presentation and hands-on skills demonstration on tourniquet application, wound packing, and pressure application. The B-Con course training principles are based on the American Heart Association’s bystander CPR program, which has reduced mortality associated with out-of-hospital cardiac events, and this campaign aims to achieve like results. This one hour program is instructed by highly trained and experienced Trauma providers from Lakeland Regional Health. All materials will be provided upon course arrival at no cost.

Please note, the first in person class will not be until June 24th, 2022. This course is open to the public and will be held at Lakeland Regional Health. Our room is located on the second floor of the Pavilion for Women and Children. It will be held in the Kathy Hunt Conference Room. Please park in the D/E parking garage for ease of access to this area of the hospital. This room is located in the new Women and Children’s building at LRH. For any questions, please feel free to email me at courtney.simmons@mylrh.org
