Hi! I’m Tracey Cullers on behalf of expertvillage.com.
In this segment, I’m going to show you how to stop the bleeding. First of all, with any
type of bleeding incident, put gloves on immediately. You want to keep the body fluids away from
your own hands for safety of the person and yourself. Next, you take some sterile gauze;
place it over top of the cut, holding firm pressure. If that starts to go through, as
you can see it coming there grab another piece. Put it over top, working as quickly as you
can. Continue holding pressure. You’re going to keep layering it up until the bleeding
isn’t coming through any longer. I think one more piece will do. Good it stopped. At
this point, we’re going to use a roller bandage. Start at one end and wrap it around.
Continuing the hold pressure. How does that feel? I’m going to make sure that it’s
not too tight. Can you feel my fingers? Now, cut off the bandage and use a piece of tape to close it. That’s
how you stop the bleeding.
