Step 1: 
Stop the bleeding. Now! 
Expose the wound.  Tear clothing 
away.  Immediately apply firm, 
direct pressure to the wound 
using gauze, clean cloth, an 
elbow, hand, or knee — whatever 
it takes to slow or stop the hemorrhage.  If the pressure does 
not stop the bleeding, and the dressing becomes soaked with blood, you will need to apply a tourniquet. 	
S tep 2: 
Apply the Tourniquet 
If the bleeding doesn’t stop, place a 
tourniquet at least 2-3 inches from 
the wound. The tourniquet may be 
applied and secured over clothing.

Step 7: 
Make a note of the time. 
Note the time that the tourniquet was applied.  
This is important because leaving a tourniquet 
on too long can cause damage to the tissue.  
A time-stamp will help care-givers know which 
patients to treat first.
