Stanford provides specialized care to over 2,500 trauma patients per year. We receive patients from many outlying counties in addition to interfacility transports of patients who need Stanford's expertise. Patients are transported directly to our facility by paramedics and flight crews, such as Stanford's Life Flight.
Stop the Bleed is a nationwide program designed to empower civilian bystanders to act quickly and save lives.
Designed by a world-class team of government and health care individuals following the events at Sandy Hook Elementary, this group created a protocol to enhance survivorability in the event of a mass casualty. The resulting injuries from these events generally present with severe bleeding which, if left unattended, can result in death.
The Stop the Bleed program identified simple techniques that have been developed to have a big impact on saving lives, similar to the memorable techniques taught for CPR or the Heimlich maneuver.
