Wounds are cut or break in the skin and fresh resulting from injury.
Get a piece of clean cloth and apply pressure directly over the wound for 10 minutes. If the bleeding does not stop after 10 minutes of manual pressure, reinforce the cloth with a thicker piece of material and apply more pressure over the wound. Bandage snugly but not too tight. Let patient lie down and bring him immediately to the nearest hospital or clinic if wound is big and will need suturing. Observe for numbness and discoloration of the toes and fingers. If there is numbness and discoloration of the toes and fingers, the bandage is too tight. Loosen but don’t remove.
