Controlling Blood Loss from a Leg Wound

The first of these is the great artery that runs down the inside of the leg, called the femoral. Bleeding from this vessel will result in death in a very few minutes, and it has been known to be severed by a man falling on his sheath knife. The bleeding may be controlled by grasping the leg with the fingers near the body. About half way down the inner surface of the leg the fingers will fall into a slight depression, at the bottom of which lies the femoral artery.

Any of the vessels of the lower limb may be controlled by compressing just behind the knee between the two prominent tendons that will be found there when the leg is doubled up.

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