AMK’s Tips for Stopping Bleeding

Weiss, MD, debunks some commonly held myths about the most effective methods for stopping problem bleeding.

One of the co-founders of Adventure Medical Kits, Dr. Weiss is also the author of A Comprehensive Guide to Wilderness & Travel Medicine. Currently, he is the Associate Director of Trauma at the Stanford University Medical Center.
