Z-Medica Teams Up with the American College of Surgeons Providing Basic Bleeding Control Instructor Training
Date:12/5/2016

Z-Medica, LLC, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic devices, announces today that they have teamed up with The American College of Surgeons (ACS) to provide basic bleeding control instructor training to surgeons.

Working with the ACS’s Committee on Trauma, the “Bleeding Control Basic” course is a pilot program that fulfills the intent of the White House’s “Stop the Bleed” national initiative which is designed to increase the public’s awareness of how they can play a role in saving lives by applying basic bleeding control techniques until appropriate medical care is available.

So far, more than 350 surgeons have participated in the training program, which instructs surgeons how to train laypersons on the basics of bleeding control. Those surgeons who participate in the program can then return to their communities and teach the basic bleeding control techniques.

“Teaming up with the American College of Surgeons to provide this training was a natural fit for us,” said Z-Medica President and CEO Stephen J. Fanning. “By providing the necessary tools, products and personnel to support this effort, Z-Medica continues its commitment to helping save lives.”
