The CrashSavers Team is dedicated to teaching first responders how to stop bleeding in order to prevent deaths from hemorrhagic injuries. Our educational material is associated with both digital and physical simulation to teach learners how to apply pressure, packing, tourniquets, and balloon compression to stop bleeding in the field so that patients are stabilized for transfer to definitive care. We look forward to sharing our work with everyone!
