Bleeding

If you are sure that there is no fracture, apply direct pressure to the wound or ask them to apply pressure to it.

Apply gauze to the wound and begin wrapping it. Start wrapping at the end of the limb so as not to trap blood in the hand or foot.

If the wound bleeds through, apply more gauze but DO NOT REMOVE the old pad. If you remove it, you will tear of all the clots and then you will have to start all over.
