If Chicago reached 800 murdered in 2016, how many more were wounded, but didn't die???  Experts agree, the number would have been significantly higher, had it not been for the use of modern medical equipment and techniques.  You don’t have to look for trouble, in order for trouble to find you!

This is a unique opportunity to learn what steps to take to stabilize a victim of a gunshot wound or serious penetrating trauma (including knife wounds) for the 3-30 minutes it may take until the ambulance arrives. This may be a family member, innocent by-stander or even yourself. This class based on principles of tactical medicine is designed for home owners/defenders, firearm instructors, and police/security officers, concerned citizens, etc.

In this class you will learn critical anatomy, ballistic impact, managing the three major causes of death, using hemostatic agents, using tourniquets, putting together a trauma kit for home and vehicle and other topics to keep a person alive until help arrives. This class is presented both as classroom theory and practical hands on training.  Be sure to bring a pen and paper for taking notes.

   

Tactical Treatment of Gunshot Wounds is taught by a paramedic with the Chicago Fire Department with over 31 years of experience on the tough inner city streets.

Rule #1 for surviving a gun shot or stab wound, live as close as possible to mt Sinai or cook county hospital! Growing up in the lower west side of the city, everyone has been shot or stabbed and luckily for us, we lived roughly 5-10 minutes away from a trauma center so most of us survived! Other than that, I’ve seen people plug up gun shot wounds with their fingers and used duck tape to patch up stab wounds!

I can't make this class, but if they do it again, I'd definitely go.

These types of classes are so needed!

Oh man, this is in my area too! That doesn't happen too often. I wish I had the $85 to spare.

Based on numbers, you may want Christ hospital instead.
