What everyone must know: first aid for arterial bleeding
To begin with, I would like to recall that ourthe organism is provided with two circles of blood circulation: small and large. From the "push", more precisely from the contraction of the heart muscle, a splash of a certain portion of blood in the artery occurs. At the first stage, it is considered to be arterial, enriched with oxygen and necessary for the cells of the body nutrients. Having reached each vessel, giving up the "burden", this liquid takes carbon dioxide and metabolic products. Returns to the heart it has already changed (through the veins) and is called venous. There are four types of bleeding wounds: capillary, mixed, venous and arterial. They can also be external and internal. The first aid for arterial bleeding should be appropriate (with a venous, mixed and capillary sequence of actions is different).
Based on the external data of the wound, it turns outfirst aid for arterial hemorrhage. Do anything with internal trauma outside the medical institution is impossible, so the only way to save a person's life is to take him to the hospital urgently. It is advisable to do this as accurately as possible, and to give the victim an elevated position. With an open wound, it is also necessary to take a person to a medical station soon, but on the way you need to put a bandage on and draw a blood-streaked artery. This is done with the harness, you can pinch it. It is important to do this above the wound by the artery, and not lower. It is necessary to remember, without fail, and it is better to record the exact time when the tourniquet was applied. It is important!
First aid for arterialbleeding, accompanied by fractures, is somewhat different, since it is undesirable to injure the injured person once again. It is always necessary to act accordingly to the situation, to be able to reach the emergency aid station, where in the "on-line" mode you will be given all the consultations and will help wait for the specialists.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones!
