Responding to the RSA Circular Emergency student design brief my bleeding control scheme embraces sustainability and reduction of waste in a medical emergency. Using a subscription model it identifies how local authorities or business would be able to subscribe to a system in order to maintain emergency bleeding control kits within communities. This service would be accessible, sustainable and help prevent needless deaths from blood loss. The kit is designed with sustainability in mind, meaning members of the public would remove only the necessary equipment for a certain body area or injury type (knife still in the wound or not). This reduces the amount of medical contamination and also only provides the first responder with appropriate equipment that will not cause further injury if they are non-first aid trained. The promotional material for the scheme is also designed to be sustainable. The leaflet doubles as an emergency chest seal and can be used to stop bleeding on sucking injuries to a persons chest.
