Identifying and Using Pressure Points to Control Bleeding

Identifying and Using Pressure Points to Control Bleeding

 

The body has pressure points situated from head to toe that can be depressed above a wound site in order to control bleeding.  Using these pressure points should be considered as the secondary course of action to take if applying direct pressure to a wound does not stop bleeding.  The use of pressure points is also considered to be an intermediate step before applying a tourniquet which could cause permanent damage to limbs and extremities.
