An Excerpt from the course on Trauma

The following are the rules regarding dressing wounds:

  1. A dressing and bandage are of little value if they do not help control bleeding. Continue to apply dressing and apply pressure as needed to control bleeding.
  2. Use sterile or clean materials. Avoid touching dressing in the area that will come into contact with the wound.
  3. Cover the entire surface of the wound and, if possible, the immediate area surrounding the injury.
  4. Once a dressing is applied to a wound, it must remain in place. Add new dressings on top of blood-soaked dressings. And,
  5. When a dressing is removed from a wound, bleeding may restart or increase in rate.
