Most of us know how to provide first aid for minor cuts and scrapes. But do you know what to do for an injury that causes much more serious bleeding? Bleeding emergencies can include injuries such as amputation of a body part, severe loss of blood from the chest or abdomen, impaled objects, or internal bleeding. All of these are serious and life-threatening injuries. In each of them, it's important to call for emergency medical care and provide first aid to try to slow the loss of blood or otherwise help the person. The first aid you'll provide will be different depending on the injury, however. In this course, you'll learn the first aid to provide for several types of bleeding emergencies.
