In this video, you will learn how to administer first aid to a person who is bleeding.
Immediately apply direct pressure to the wound with clean gloves, using a plastic bag or a cloth in order to prevent any infection
Lay the casualty on their back in order to prevent them from going into shock.
If there is a foreign object in the wound, do not try to remove it because it could exacerbate the bleeding!
If you have to leave the casualty to call the emergency services, ask the casualty to apply pressure themselves.
If they are unable to do so: apply a pressure dressing with cloth and a wide tie then call the emergency services.
Cover the casualty and monitor them until medical help arrives.
