Cary Area EMS Training June 2017
Our training this month led by Division Chief Mike Prevatte involves bleeding control, the use of tourniquets and packing wounds. DC Prevatte’s unique and fun approach provides a great learning environment. DC Prevatte uses an IV arm that connects to rubber tubing that connects to a water source. DC Prevatte has the option to increase or decrease the flow of fluid from the wound. Our EMTs stop the bleeding when they correctly use direct pressure (rarely works in our training) or when the tourniquet is applied correctly.
