10 Minute Medicine

Event Details

The “platinum 10 minutes” place a time constraint on the pre-hospital care of seriously injured patients. The first 10 minutes after a life threatening injury can be the most critical. Cajun Arms feels it is imperative to offer a lifesaving course for their students and members of NCCSC. Ten Minute Medicine is an absolute must for anyone serious about their own safety and the safety of others, whether they shoot or not. The first time you use medical gear should not be in a real world scenario; get trained on proper equipment and its application. This course will prepare you to deploy lifesaving measures for yourself and others until the ambulance arrives.

Who Should Be Trained?
EVERYONE! Severe bleeding injuries can result from natural and man-made disasters and from everyday accidents, as well as from catastrophic and terrorist incidents. If left unmanaged, it can kill within minutes, potentially before trained responders can arrive. Bystanders who have been provided with basic tools and information on the simple steps they can take in an emergency situation to stop life-threatening bleeding can SAVE LIVES!
Research has shown that bystanders – even with very little medical training – can become heroic lifesavers. Similar to the success of CPR or the use of an AED, improving public awareness about how to stop severe bleeding and expanding both personal and public access to bleeding control kits can be the difference between life and death for an injured person.
Who Can Take This Course?
EVERYONE! Learning to control bleeding is an essential skill that anyone can apply to save lives, just like CPR. In particular, these skills are important for non-tactical law enforcement, firefighters, security personnel, emergency coordinators, and teachers. In addition, we recommend that all workplaces, schools, and churches have multiple employees/members trained in bleeding control.
