Bleeding Cuts or Wounds

How to stop the bleeding

  • Apply direct pressure on the cut or wound with a
    clean cloth, tissue, or piece of gauze until bleeding stops.
  • If blood soaks through the material,
    don’t remove it. Put more cloth or gauze on top of it and continue to apply pressure.
  • If the wound is on the arm or leg,
    raise limb above the heart, if possible, to help slow bleeding.
  • Wash your hands
    after giving first aid and before cleaning and dressing the wound.

Black Eye Treatment

Treat Symptoms

  • For pain, give . Don't give  because it can increase bleeding.

Call a health care provider immediately if

  • The person's vision is blurred, double, or lost in either eye.
  • The person is in severe pain.
  • You suspect a serious eye injury.
  • There is drainage or bleeding on the white part of the eye or drainage from the eye.
  • The eyeball or pupil looks abnormal.
  • If you just want it.

Warm Compress

Broken Hand Treatment

What to do?

  • Apply firm pressure with
    a clean cloth until bleeding stops.
  • If the bone is pushing through the skin
    do not touch it or try to put it back in place.

If the person's hand is numb or cold or the skin under the fingernails is blue, do not move the hand or arm. Otherwise:

  • Have the person bend the arm at the elbow.
  • Do not try to straighten the hand if it bent or deformed.
  • Make a sling and place the person's arm in it. Tie the sling around his or her neck.
  • Tie a splint on the lower arm with fabric or elastic bandages. Cardboard, rolled-up newspaper, or other stiff material can't be used as a splint.
