CrashSavers is designing a model for the prehospital setting to teach bleeding control techniques. Their project involves the development of a Web-based and mobile app that is integrated with a low cost physical model to train users in hemorrhage control. This will teach health care providers methods to stop bleeding before a patient arrives at the hospital.
