Severe External Bleeding:
When bleeding is severe, it can be dramatic and distressing.. If bleeding is not controlled, shock may develop and the casualty may lose consciousness.
Bleeding from the mouth or nose may affect breathing. When treating severe bleeding, check first weather there is an object embedded in the wound; take care not to press directly on the object. Do not let the casualty have anything to eat or drink because he may need an anesthetic later.
What to do:
1. Remove or cut clothing as necessary to expose the wound.
2. Apply direct pressure over the wound with your fingers using a sterile dressing or clean, gauze pad. If you do have a dressing, ask the casualty to apply direct pressure himself. If there is an object in the wound, apply pressure on either side of the object (opposite).
3. Maintain direct pressure on the wound to control bleeding Raise and support the injured limb above the level of the casualty's heart to reduce blood loss.
4. Help the casualty lie down-- on a rug or blanket if there is one, because this will protect him from the cold. Since shock may develop raise and support his legs so that they are above the level of his heart. Ask a helper to call 911 for emergency help, and to give the dispatcher details of the site and extent of the bleeding.
5. Secure the dressing or tourniquet with a bandage that is firm enough to maintain pressure, but not so tight that it impairs circulation. Call 911 for emergency help if this has not been done already.
6. If bleeding shows through the dressing, apply a second one on top of the first. If blood seeps through the second dressing, remove both and apply a fresh one, ensuring that pressure is applied accurately at the point of bleeding.
7. Support the injured part in a raised position with a sling and/or bandage. Check the circulation beyond the bandage every ten minutes. If the circulation is impaired, loosen the bandage and reapply.
8. Monitor and record vital sign--level of response, breathing, and pulse--while waiting for help to arrive.
Ideal Outcome: Control bleeding and try to prevent shock and lose of consciousness. Trauma can be dramatic and distressing if the bleeding is not controlled.
