Injuries and violence affect everyone, regardless of age, race, or economic status.
According to the CDC, more Americans die from violence and injuries such as motor vehicle crashes, falls, or homicides than from any other cause, including cancer, HIV, or the flu. Trauma is the leading cause of death among persons 1-46 and for those that are taking blood thinning medications and those who have bleeding disorders, injury poses a serious and potentially fatal threat. With the uncertainty of when and where a bleeding emergency may occur, preparedness is key.
Stopbleedingkits.org aims to create awareness for the Stop the Bleed initiative and have also partnered with FDA and CoTCCC approved CELOX hemostatic products to bring you the best available options available in first aid. We are assisting with the fulfillment and implementation of bleeding control equipment as it is important that proper bleeding control equipment is available and accessible to all seeking to be prepared. The CELOX 5′ x 3″ Hemostatic Gauze Roll and 8″ x 8″ Gauze Pad are licensed and approved products for the Stop the Bleed program.
