Action Stations - UC Health installs Tytek Bleeding Control Stations

As part of the Stop the Bleed program, bleeding control stations are being installed at University of Cincinnati (UC) Medical Center and other UC Health locations. So far, 100 stations have been installed across their sites.

“Each station at UC Medical Center is located near a wall-mounted automated external defibrillator (AED) and contains eight individual kits for bleeding control,” says Maria Friday, Director of Emergency Management for UC Health. “With events like the Las Vegas shooting in October 2017 and the Fountain Square shooting in Cincinnati last year, it reinforces the importance of learning bleeding control techniques to potentially save lives.” 

The kits were developed by Tytek Medical with the expertise of Dustin Calhoun, MD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, and Medical Director for Emergency Management at UC Health, to determine what materials and items should be included in them.

Regina Menninger, Trauma Prevention and Outreach Co-ordinator for UC Medical Center and West Chester Hospital said: “One of the key components of the Stop the Bleed training is encouraging people and preparing them with the right tools and skills to help someone who has uncontrolled and life-threatening bleeding.”

This chimes with TyTek Medical’s mantra to educate, equip and empower bystanders to become life savers in the event of a deliberate attack.
