Do you limit your activity because you are afraid of falling? Our Matter of Balance class is just the class for you. In this class we come up with strategies to
- identify and anticipate fall risks
- reduce risk for falls in every day life
- overcome barriers to staying active
- find ways to keep doing the things you love to do!
This life-saving class takes place over 1 hour. During this class you will learn how to recognize life-threatening blood loss and how to stop it with direct pressure, wound packing or tourniquet application. Death from bleeding out is the number one preventable cause of death in trauma patients which means simple stop the bleed techniques can really save a lot of lives. We want everyone in Maui County prepared to save a life in the face of trauma, so that people can make it to our Trauma Center with some blood left.
We can hold this class virtually or in person, but in-person is preferred so that students can watch and practice these techniques.
This 1.5 to 2 hour long lecture is a joint lecture provided by Maui Police Department (MPD) and Maui Health's Trauma Team. MPD begins the lecture with information on Active Attacker warning signs and best practices for running, hiding or fighting depending upon circumstances. Unfortunately, many gun-violence victims die from bleeding out, which is why Stop The Bleed(STB) techniques are so important for everyone to know. In fact STB was created in response to some of the needless lives lost to gun violence because of lack of knowledge amongst the public about basic stop the bleed techniques. That is why the Trauma team follows this lecture with stop the bleed training, so that everyone who leaves is prepared to save a life.
