With response times and speed of treatment being paramount to increasing the chances of saving a life due to catastrophic blood loss, the new Bleed Control Kit is designed to help control and stop severe bleeding.
Having extensive knowledge of first-response trauma equipment, we have teamed up with The Daniel Baird Foundation to raise awareness of knife and violent crime, and to highlight the importance of having publicly accessible bleed control packs available.
The Daniel Baird Foundation has been established in memory of Daniel Baird. Daniel was just 26 years of age when he was fatally stabbed in Birmingham in July 2017, following a night out with friends, in an area where no bleed control kit or trauma pack was at hand to use. The family of Daniel Baird believe that, had there been a publicly accessible bleed control pack available, Daniel’s life may not have been cut so short.
Containing the very best proven equipment, essential for medical or trauma management, the Bleed Control Kit provides the lay person, bystander or trained medic with the means to immediately control life-threatening external haemorrhaging.
The pack is lightweight, allowing it to be attached to personnel, hung up, or kept within vehicles, with high visibility red colouring, allowing for rapid identification. It includes basic instructions for the lay person to have a straightforward understanding of the equipment included, and where/how to apply.
In addition t
working with The Daniel Baird Foundation, we have been joined by the West Midlands Ambulance Service, and Birmingham Community Safety Partnership to develop what we believe to be one of the most effective and comprehensive forms of bleed control solution.
