What are the treatments for Bleeding?

  • For severe bleeding, apply immediate, direct pressure to the wound with any available, clean material. Continue pressure until the bleeding is controlled.
  • Elevate the wound above the affected individual's heart. The person should be lying down with the legs elevated.
  • Apply a tourniquet only if other means to control life-threatening bleeding do not work. Tighten the tourniquet only enough to stop the bleeding. Note the time the tourniquet was applied and remove as soon as possible.
