SAFE STEPS First Aid: Severe Bleeding

Hi my name is Wee Chee and I’m a paramedic In my line of work first aid can be the difference
between life and death But you don’t have to be a professional
to save a life So if you find yourself in an emergency situation
follow these SAFE STEPS In the case of severe bleeding, call the emergency
services immediately Protect your hands and apply pressure directly
to the wound If an object is embedded in the wound, don’t
remove it Instead apply pressure around the injury Help the injured person lie down and raise
the affected area above the heart to slow blood flow Keep them warm and wait for help to arrive If you find yourself in the right place at
the right time, be prepared to save a life and follows these SAFE STEPS For more life-saving advice visit safesteps.com
