Bleeding Control Stations
Remember when applying medical treatment to someone to always wear personal protective equipment (i.e. gloves, glasses)
What to do when someone is bleeding.
- Attempt to stop the bleeding by applying a 4x4 dressing to the affected area and apply pressure.
- If the bleeding continues but slows, apply additional 4x4 dressings. (Do not remove previous dressings)
- If the bleeding continues and DOES NOT slow, apply a tourniquet 4" or higher to the affected limb.
If a tourniquet is applied, be sure to check for a pulse to ensure it does not exisit. This will mean the tourniquet was properly applied. *use the sharpie to write the time the tourniquet was applied on the white strap of the tourniquet and notify EMS.
