Try to stop independently bleeding in the ways suitable for a concrete situation. It will reduce loss of blood and will allow to examine a wound to define a damage rate of fabrics. Remove the remains of clothes or other subjects which remained in a wound.

It is possible that the clothes or the weapon brought an infection inside. Wash out a wound antiseptic preparations (Furacilin solution, peroxide of hydrogen or weak solution of manganese). It is possible to use a large amount of water. Wash out a wound in the direction from the upper edge to the lower. Do everything carefully, without pressing.

At a deep wound in certain cases give to the person an antibiotic, and at severe pain the anesthetizing medicine. Watch body temperature, its increase signals about existence of an infection in a wound
