Go to the doctor, but until after use ice cold water and bandage.
compression and elevation. wrap firmly contained by bandages and raise it above the heart horizontal. applying ice will slow the bleeding and speed up the clotting. just put the rime over the bandage.
Go to hospital if it's particularly immense bleeding, deep cut, or if it just doesn't stop.
Depending on the severity of the bleed call 911. The cover it with a dressing. if still not controled apply direct pressure. If that doesn't do it later apply direct pressure to the brachial artery ( the inside of your upper arm) . If it all possible avoid the last part of a set which is place a tourniquet on the arm
Lol, you sound emo.
Well, you have to stop the blood circulation in attendance to prevent it from bleeding more so you can tie something around your arm to prevent more blood loss. Then you should 'wash' it, run it through water and clean it near some antibiotics or one of those products.
YOU MUST keep reduce the amount of blood loss and subside the chances of infection.
Before you try to stop the bleeding
Wash your hands well near soap and water, if available.
Put on medical gloves, if available, before applying direct pressure to the wound. If gloves are not available, use several layers of clean cloth, plastic oodles, or the cleanest material available between your hands and the wound.
Have the injured creature hold direct pressure on the wound, if possible, and elevate the injured area.
Use your uncovered hands to apply direct pressure only as a finishing resort.
Stop the bleeding
Have the injured person lie down and elevate the site that is to say bleeding.
Remove any visible objects in the wound that are graceful to remove. Control the bleeding before trying to clean the wound.
Remove or cut clothing from around the wound. Remove any jewelry from the common area of the wound so if the area swells, the jewelry will not affect blood flow.
Apply steady, direct pressure for a full 15 minutes. Use a clock-15 minutes can seem to be like a long time. Resist the urge to peek after a few minutes to see whether bleeding have stopped. If blood soaks through the cloth, apply another one without lifting the first. If there is an intent in the wound, apply pressure around the object, ultimately over it.
If moderate to severe bleeding has not slowed or stopped after 15 minutes, continue direct pressure and elevate the injured nouns while transporting the injured person to a medical facility. Do not use a tourniquet to stop the bleeding. Do all you can to maintain the wound clean and avoid further injury to the area.
If after 15 minutes of steady pressure mild bleeding (more than newly oozing small amounts of blood) recurs when the pressure is released, reapply direct pressure to the wound for another 15 minutes. Direct pressure may be applied up to 3 times for 15 minutes each (45 minutes total). If mild bleeding continues after 45 minutes of direct pressure, use the Check Your Symptoms subdivision to determine your next steps.
Occasionally a puncture wound causes bleeding underneath the skin, but one and only a small amount of blood comes out of the wound. When this happens, the area around the puncture wound may become swollen and bruised. If the bleeding cause blood to collect in the wound site (wound hematoma), the risk of an infection increases.
While following the steps to stop the bleeding, watch for signs of shock within the injured person, including:
Weakness, dizziness, and fainting.
Cool, adjectives, clammy skin.
Weak, fast pulse.
Shallow, fast breathing.
Low blood pressure.
Extreme thirst, nausea, or vomiting.
Confusion or anxiety.
Hi there. Just one question: did you purposely cut yourself? If so, and this is something you do regularly this suggests that you are not dealing beside a problem in a healthy track. If this is true I would advise that after you tend to the wound, seek out give support to from a trusted friend or counsellor. If this was accidental and it is a vast cut, you can stop the flow of blood by lightly tying a rope around your upper arm just to the point of stopping the blood flow and carry to the hospital to close the wound.
Depends how deep cut is. First, verbs with Hydrogen peroxide. apply pressure...you can also put sugar on cut...helps it to clot faster. Keep pressure on. Keep wrist above height of heart.
If it doesn't stop bleeding after 1 hour, it needs stitches & you need to travel to ER.
Hope this wasn't self harming.
You need to hold a 1st Aid kit for these kind of things...beside lots of gauze etc. Source(s): Mental Health Worker
