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. 1 2 3 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. 5
