Bleed Kit Instructions:
Severe bleeding is a major threat to life and requires urgent attention to prevent serious blood loss. Wear disposable gloves (supplied) to avoid direct contact with victim's blood or other body fluids.
1) Apply Direct Pressure to the wound:
a) Any clean material may be used eg clothing or wound dressing, to be placed against the wound.
b) Bandage pad firmly in place but make sure blood circulation is not restricted to limbs.
2) Elevate the injured part:
a) While keeping pressure on the wound, raise the bleeding part to reduce blood flow to the injured area.
3) If bleeding continues, apply further pressure:
a) Do not remove the original pad and bandage.
b) Apply additional dressings or pressure over the wound if bleeding continues.
4) Embedded Objects:
a) Do not remove embedded foreign objects.
b) Apply pressure with pads around the wound but not directly onto the foreign object.
5) Seek medical help quickly:
a) Large wounds generally need medical treatment such as stitching and tetanus injection.
