What is the first step you should take when you discover a victim bleeding heavily?
I would make sure scene is safe while on my way over (sprinting) while getting first aid kit. I would next put on my PPE while I start activating Emergency Response team. I would then put a dressing on the wound and start to apply direct pressure to the wound with the palm of my hands. I would then keep adding more layers of dressing and more pressure to wounds that will not stop bleeding.
If the bleeding is heavy and not stopping after a couple layers of gauze and continued pressure, what other problem could the victim face?
The victim could have some shock as well as lightheadedness with the chance of passing out.
If you do not have a gauze pad to cover the wound, what other types of dressings can you apply?
You can use any other clean piece of cloth or even a gloved hand. I would probably use some part of my clothing if need be.
What steps should you take to relieve a bloody nose?
After doing to normal check to see if scene is safe, have the first aid kit, and you are wearing PPE I would go right into stopping nose from bleeding. I would press both sides of the nostrils while the person sits and leans forward. I would give the person a constant pressure for a few minutes till the bleeding subsides.
If a nose does not stop bleeding in about 15 minutes, is gushing or the victim has trouble breathing, what should you do?
I would continue to press even harder and I would then call 911 or have some call for help!
If someone has a puncture wound do you remove the object if it is still partially stuck in the body? Why or why not?
