Blood Loss from a Vein or Artery

While, theoretically, many people know that blood flowing in a steady stream is coming from a vein and that flowing in jets or spurts is coming from an artery, few know how to take advantage of that knowledge. The general rule to make pressure between the heart and the wound in case of a jet and between the wound and the extremity in case of a stream is only good as a general rule; there are exceptions and it is exceptions that make the rule dangerous. There are times when it becomes necessary to reverse the process.

The proper way is to make compression with your fingers until you have located the region the blood comes from; then apply your steady compression in that locality. There are a few great arterial trunks that lie near the surface and may become injured, the injury causing death from hemorrhage. The manner of locating the compression point for these arteries will be given.

Moody, Charles Stuart. Backwoods Surgery & Medicine. New York: Outing Pub., 1916. Print.
