    • TYPE OF WOUND (CONTUSIONS)
      • Commonly known as bruises.
      • May be superficial or deeper within tissues or organs.
      • Caused by blunt injury to tissues, damaging the blood vessels beneath the skin.
    • TYPE OF WOUND (CONTUSIONS)
    • TYPE OF WOUND (LACERATIONS)
      • Commonly known as gashes, tears or cuts of the skin.
      • Skin surface is split or torn and full thickness of the skin is damaged.
      • Results in profuse bleeding.
    • TYPE OF WOUND (LACERATIONS)
    • TYPE OF WOUND (LACERATIONS) Amputation is also a kind of laceration. To treat amputation,
      • Wrap the amputated part in a plastic bag.
      • Wrap again in gauze or soft fabric.
      • Place the package in another plastic bag filled with crushed ice.
      • Send the amputated part together with the casualty to the hospital.

    • TYPE OF WOUND (GUNSHOT)
    • TYPE OF WOUND (PUNCTURE)
      • Skin completely punctured by an object that is pointed and narrow, such as a nail.
    • BLEEDING Our body’s mechanism to stop bleeding…
      • Clotting of blood.
      • Cut ends of a blood vessel will contract.
      • Blood pressure will drop.
    • TYPE OF BLEEDING
      • Arterial bleeding
      • Venous bleeding
      • Capillary bleeding
    • TYPE OF BLEEDING
      • Arterial bleeding
      • Blood is bright right red in colour.
      • Spurts out from a wound in time with the heartbeat.
      • Severed main artery may jet blood several feet high.
      • Rapidly reduce the volume of circulatory blood.
    • TYPE OF BLEEDING
      • Venous bleeding
      • Blood is dark red in colour.
      • Gush out from wound profusely.
      • Capillary bleeding
      • Blood oozing at the site of the wound.
      • Blood loss is usually slight.
    • FIRST AID PRIORITIES
      • Control blood loss by applying pressure over the wound and raising the injured part.
      • Take steps to minimize shock, which can result from severe blood loss.
      • Cover any open wound with a dressing to protect it from infection and promote natural healing.
      • Pay extra attention to hygiene to prevent cross-contamination between you and the casualty.
    • TREATMENT FOR MINOR EXTERNAL BLEEDING
      • Direct pressure.
      • Elevation.
      • Small adhesive dressing.
      • Medical aid need only be sought if the bleeding does not stop or if the wound is at special risk of infection.
    • Protecting yourself…
      • Use disposable gloves.
      • Wash hands well in soap and water before and after treatment.
      • Cover any sores or open wounds with waterproof adhesive dressing.
    • Cleaning and dressing of wound…
      • If the wound is dirty, clean it by rinsing lightly under running water or use an antiseptic wipe.
      • Elevate the wounded part above the level of the heart.
      • Apply adhesive dressing.
      • If there is a special risk of infection, advise the casualty to see a doctor.
    • INTERNAL BLEEDING Recognition:
      • Pallor.
      • Cold, clammy skin.
      • A rapid, weak pulse.
      • Pain.
      • Thirst.
      • Confusion, restlessness and irritability, possibly leading to collapse and unconsciousness.
      • After violent injury, pattern bruising.
      • Bleeding from orifices.
      • Information from the casualty that indicates recent injury or illness, previous similar episodes or he or she takes drugs for a medical condition.
    • Bleeding from orifices… Leakage of cerebrospinal fluid following head injury. Thin watery blood . Injury to the inner or outer ear or perforated eardrum. Fresh, bright red blood. Ear Bleeding within the digestive system. Vomitted blood, red or dark reddish-brown, resembling coffee colour . Bleeding in the lungs. Bright red, frothy, coughed-up blood.
