In this video, you will learn to administer first aid to a person with a severed body part.

- Put on gloves, if available.

- Apply pressure to the wound immediately with a clean cloth or plastic bag.

- Lay the casualty on their back to avoid worsening their condition.

- Call the emergency services.

- Ask the casualty to apply pressure themselves, so that you can search for the severed body part.

If they are unable to do so, you should apply a pressure dressing with cloth and a wide tie.

- Recover the severed limb.

Wrap it in a clean piece of cloth and put it in a plastic bag on ice.

This will preserve it until it can be surgically reattached.

A tourniquet should not be used! If it is not properly applied, there is a risk of causing serious complications, including amputation.

- Cover, monitor and reassure the casualty.
