Backcountry Wound Care

Develop expert skills in the most commonly needed area of first aid!

Those are some rather gnarly feet, eh? 18 separate blisters to be exact. The worst feet I have ever seen. I can guarantee you they were not mine! In this course you will learn where this hiker went wrong so that you can avoid situations like that. Not to mention get others out of that situation should you need to. But we're not going to just stop at blister treatment!

You will also will learn everything any outdoor adventurer should know about wound care. Even my mother who recently attended her first first aid course with me mentioned "Wow Morgan, who knew I had so much to learn about wound care. Had I known all that, you and your brother would have had a lot fewer scars!

What You'll Learn

Wound Care Kit

Give that first aid kit a solid once over and make sure you have what you need to perform exceptional wound care.

Control Bleeding

Review traditional methods of controlling bleeding, when and how to use a tourniquet and discuss new products like the iTrauma Clamp shown above.

Wound Closure

Learn how to close wounds in the field and when its really necessary to evacuate to receive sutures from the pros.

Advanced Bandaging

Learn how to bandage wounds, and usue specialized dressings, to keep them clean and you playing in the backcountry.

Realistically, these are the first aid skills I actually need. Direct. To the point. Perfect.
