A person can bleed to death from severe hemorrhage in as little as 3-5 minutes, faster than many EMS agencies can respond to the scene. Rapid, public access to bleeding control products reduces time to treatment and saves lives in incidents of severe hemorrhage. This is the basis for the Department of Homeland Security's "Stop The Bleed" program, a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives.
The Stop The Bleed Module contains the critical medical components needed to control major hemorrhage until EMS can arrive on scene. A diagrammatic Instruction sheet takes you through each step of the bleeding control process.
An advanced version of this module is also available, which contains a chest seal and survival blanket (meeting Texas House Bill 496 requirements).
1 Windlass Tourniquet (Choose between CAT, SOF Tourniquet, and SAM XT)
2 S-Rolled Gauze, 4.5" x 4.1 yds
1 Emergency Trauma Dressing, 4"
1 Pair Nitrile Gloves
1 Trauma Shears, 5.5"
1 Mini Sharpie Marker
1 Bleeding Control Instructions
Dimensions: 8" H x 4.5" W x 3" D

Two of these Bleeding Control Modules are supplied in the Rescue Essentials Stop the Bleed - Dual Treatment Kit. Use these modules as replacements for that kit or to build your own bleeding control response kit.

There was a point in my life where I would have bought all of the components in this kit separately and made my own. As it is now we needed a kit that anyone could use without hesitation. The only thing I felt needed modification was adding additional sized gloves. Overall a good kit for the price.
This kit contains just what is needed to augment the emergency capabilities of a wall mounted AED so a lay person can also deal with a major bleeding incident. Every AED installation needs one!!!
the right price for that product
Not much to say. Good quality items put into a kit. These are apparently made to order so it took longer than expected with no notification of the delay. I’ve been spoiled that RE ships promptly and fast that the delay seemed abnormal.
