The first thing that we should always do when dealing with a bleeding injury. It is to stop the bleed by putting direct pressure on the wound.

Remove any jewellery or clothing around the injury site so that it won’t be contaminated.

Use clean water and saline, to clean the injury site so that no any foreign objects like small rocks or dirt can enter the wound.

If blood is flowing from the wound uncontrollable by direct pressure. Call 000 for emergency service. While you wait a tourniquet can be applied to limbs or use a blood clotting gauze if it’s a wound to the truck of the body.
