Dr. Jonathan Woodson (center) takes part in the White House’s “Stop the Bleed” forum Oct. 6, 2015, in Washington, D.C. The initiative is a joint effort among several government and nongovernmental agencies, along with the private sector, to give average citizens the tools they need to help out in an emergency situation. Specifically, bystanders will be able to do what medical officials say is the most critical task in the moments after an injury: keep the victim from bleeding to death. Woodson called the effort the “miracle minute” and said those first on the scene, even before professional first responders, can make all the difference.
