Emergency Tactics

Severe Bleeding

What happens: Your child's bleeding won't stop, even when you raise the bleeding body part above chest level and apply gentle pressure to the wound.

What to do: Apply direct pressure with your hand, a gauze pad, or a clean cloth. Call 911 or take her to the emergency room.

What not to do: Don't remove any object that's in her wound, and don't probe or put any object into her wound.
