HOW TO TREAT BULLET WOUND
FOR CONSCIOUS VICTIMS who are alert, awake, and breathing.. If they have no pulse start CPR.If the wound is in the ABDOMEN - apply direct pressure with a cloth to minimize the bleeding. KEEP PRESSURE UNTIL HELP COMES.If the wound is in the arms or legs wrap a scarf STRONGLY proximal to the wound site to minimize bleeding, applying local pressure also helps. KEEP THE PRESSURE UNTIL HELP COMES.DO NOT PUT YOUR FINGERS INSIDE THE WOUND UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, IT WILL DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD. unless you are not in a safe environment, REDUCE MOVEMENT AT ALL COSTS
LOOK FOR EXIT POINTS OF THE BULLET. if there are present you should try control the bleeding in those wounds as well or prioritize the one that is bleeding actively
