Thread: 2 inch cut to arm

  1. #1

    2 inch cut to arm

    Hi guys
    not wanting to ambush DHP first aid kit page.

    One common injury which could and can happen in the field has to be a cut whilst carrying out the grollach.

    Lets imagine I am careless and manage to firstly give myself a 2 inch cut to my arm which isn't bleeding but is very deep.

    Then in the drama I manage to cut myself again, this time another deep 2 inch cut which is bleeding very heavily.


    With 30 mins to hospital

    How should these injuries be treated ?

    a. If I never had a first aid kit

    b. If I did have a first aid kit

    thanks

    Are you writing this from the hill or have you made it home?

    get a pad on it preferably sterile but as you don't have a kit with you, cut your T shirt to make the pad and another strip to tie it on with, or just hold it firmly in place, basically cover it and apply pressure, but as you seem a bit accident prone get your mate to cut the T shirt, you would probably gralloch yourself
    Cheers

    put the knife down for fecks sake!

    pressure
    stop bleeding and hold wound closed

    I always carry a clean cotton hankerchief
    can be a sling, a dressing, a compress, good for noses, arses, ears, eyes or any other orifice

    No it's not been mentioned , it's not the done thing, I would still use it if I had nothing else to hand though.

    He would probably cut himself again trying to get the sphagnum moss off
