Basic First Aid

This video is about what to do in case of a bleeding wound. First make sure that you don’t get another person’s blood on you. Either use gloves or grab a towel, a t-shirt or some other material. Even if you know the person, it’s good to take precaution. You never know if somebody’s body fluids are infected – so, treat everyone as if they are infected.

Then secure some gauze around the wound, taking care not to wrap the bandage too tightly. Feel the limb to make sure that it’s not too tight. Feel for warmth. If it’s a gaping wound, get them to the hospital so they can get stitches.
