Emergency medicine residents at Kent Hospital hold a successful Until Help Arrives pilot course

 

Dr. Landon Wood, and Dr. Tim Bikman of Kent Hospital, teach the Until Help Arrives citizen first-responder course at a high school in Rhode Island. The course teaches life-saving hemorrhage control skills, and also compression-only CPR.

Dr. Wood and Dr. Landon share: 

"We also presented the course to our fellow EM residents and got an amazing response. Not only did they find the training to be personally beneficial, but there was an overwhelming desire to volunteer their time as course instructors to bring this course to more communities. We all felt like this simple one-hour class could transform our communities by giving individuals the confidence to act during the aftermath of an emergency and potentially save a life."
