How to control Bleeding!

If someone is bleeding put a piece of gause and put it on their cut with pressure and while you are getting the wrap ask them to put pressure on it.  Them wrap the gause wrap around their cut tight but not too tight. When you are doing this start from the bottom and then to the top. After you are done wrapping unwrap it a little so that you can tie it. To tie it hold your finger on the wrap bring it under their arm or leg or where ever there cut is and tie it like as shoe lace. If it bleeds through the bandage add another gause on top.
