Texas Survival School
Army’s effort to equip all soldiers with trauma supplies and the knowledge to use them. That’s credited with decreasing the Army’s death rate from extremity bleeding from 7.8 percent to 2.6 percent during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. 25 percent of combat deaths, and 20 percent of civilian deaths, from extreme bleeding are considered preventable through more immediate application of tourniquets and bandages by people who happen to be in the area when an injury occurs. A new study finds that nearly a quarter of the 4,596 combat deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan between 2001 and 2011 were "potentially survivable," meaning that under ideal conditions — and with the right equipment or latest medical techniques — the troops may have had a fighting chance.
But the study also notes that 90 percent of the deaths occurred before the injured reached a medical facility: of the 4,090 troops who suffered mortal wounds on the battlefield, 1,391 died instantly and 2,699 succumbed before arriving at a treatment center.
Just 506 service members made it to a field hospital before dying of injuries — an indication that military researchers should work to improve field treatment capability, says trauma surgeon Col. Brian Eastridge with the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research. The study showed that uncontrolled blood loss was the leading cause of death in 90 percent of the potentially survivable
TIME Matters !
Texas Survival School has started an initiative called "Education 4 Lives" where our goal is to provide trauma kits in every classroom and trauma training to all teachers that desire it. This is free of charge to teacher because the average response time for first responders is 6-8 minutes and a person can bleed out in as little as 2 minutes. As parents and educators ourselves, we believe that we can help save lives. We invite you to join us on this journey as obviously to do this the supplies are not free for us and that is all that we need help covering. Below you will find a donation button, please feel free to donate to our cause and help us make this happen for our kids. Any donation is welcome as the more supplies we can purchase the more teachers we can train and supply. You can even sponsor a specific teacher if you want to assure your child's teacher gets training and has the supplies (of course you may want to discuss with the teacher before signing them up for something). If you would like to donate products for our kits please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org for a detailed list of the contents. Thank you for helping us help our teachers and students.
