If you get a bad spurty cut on your hand you can clamp at the wrist with your other hand, and raise your arms above your head.Yeah, nothing actually that serious. I sliced a bit of my finger with some cut steel. Literally, all I did was walk past and just brushed against it with my hand. The kind of cut where you're looking at it thinking "wow, that's taking a long time to start bleeding, but when it does...."
Health and Safety is always important kids.
If you get a bad spurty cut on your hand you can clamp at the wrist with your other hand, and raise your arms above your head.
Once the blood stops pissing out, ease of the clamp at the wrist and see if the blood start up again. If it doesn't, I'll put myself in a position to allow me to rest it above my head for another few mins and then gently lower it down.
You'll want to be fairly ginger with it for the next while, keeping it up around shoulder height, keep your pulse low if possible, and probably get yourself to a medic.
You can even do the same with your legs, just sit down and prop your leg up above hip level.
First aid is underrated. A lot of people give it the "doing good in the service of others" line, but my reality was most of the things I learned I end up having to use on myself.You're a bit late, I bled to death weeks ago.
Yeah everything you've said is good advice. I am a first aider, which is useful but inconsequential usually. and some people are quite shocked by how blasé me and those like me are when it comes to these things.
The thing is, we're not blasé at all. It's not our first rodeo, another day at the office, es so si que es, get on with it, I AM THE ROADIEEEEE, I've fucked up bigger jobs than yours, etc etc.
