Put on latex gloves. Do the following in this order:

  1. Put pressure on the wound with cleanest material available (sterile gauze pads are best).
  2. If bleeding slows down but does not stop, apply more dressings on top.
  3. If bleeding still does not stop, elevate the limb.
  4. If bleeding still does not stop, apply a pressure dressing, tying the dressing down tightly but not enough to cut off the circulation. Keep the limb elevated.
  5. If bleeding still does not stop, put pressure on the brachial artery in the upper arm or the femoral artery in the groin. NEVER APPLY A TOURNIQUET.

If the wound is minor, after the bleeding has stopped, wash the area and apply an adhesive bandage or sterile dressing. Try not to touch any wound directly to avoid infection.
