Signs Of The Time, Part 116

ABC News recently reported on the Chicago South Side Trauma First Responders Course, created by a local trauma surgeon as Chicagoans increasingly fall victim to violent crime plaguing the city. Angel Canales and Gillian Mohney reported last Friday:

On a chilly Saturday, 20 volunteers sat in a movie theater-turned-church located on Chicago’s South Side, taking detailed notes on how to properly tie a tourniquet, take a pulse and stop the bleeding from a serious injury as part of the inaugural Chicago South Side Trauma First Responders Course.

The course is a first-of-its-kind for the city, which had 762 homicides last year, according to the Chicago Police Department.

Dr. Mamta Swaroop, 39, a trauma surgeon at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, created the Chicago South Side Trauma First Responders Course…

Swaroop came up with the idea for the course after having multiple patients bleed out to death before they could be saved at the hospital. She noticed many had wounds in their arms and legs that, if properly bandaged, may have been survivable…

I applaud Dr. Swaroop, Dr. Leah Tatebe/project team, LeVon Stone, CeaseFire Illinois, and these pioneering volunteers for their effort. I suspect it may be only a matter of time before the lifesaving skills learned are called into action.
