The neck is home to many important blood vessels. A deep cut in the neck area causing massive bleeding can cause the victim to die within minutes if the bleeding is not stopped immediately.
How would you respond in that situation?
Call an ambulance and go find bandages?
Before you find a cloth or bandage, press firmly with your hand to stop the bleeding, then quickly wrap gauze around the wound.
The way the wound on the neck is bandaged will also be a little bit special.
Would you use the tape wrapped around the neck and tighten it to stop the bleeding? ?
In this clip, Tony Coffey, an Australian First Aid Specialist, will instruct you how to give first aid to a bleeding or non-bleeding neck wound.
