As you go through your studies, there are five core concepts to take into consideration:
“Now, let us discuss the Types of Bleeding. We need to be aware of the location, severity, and source.
External Bleeding Occurs outside of the body, after a force penetrates the skin, and lacerates or destroys underlying blood vessels. It is typically visible on the surface of the skin.
Hemorrhage is often referred to as severe bleeding. It could refer to internal or external bleeding. It is a major cause of hypoperfusion in trauma.
And the third item to consider is the source of the bleeding. The source or type of blood vessel could be arterial, venous, or capillary.
Consequently, how much a person bleeds is determined by: (a) The Size and severity of the wound, (b) The Size and pressure of the ruptured vessel, and (c); The Individual’s ability to clot.”
