Gravity is the simplest way to reduce bleeding. So hold the basic cut higher then your heart. Unlikley to work in isolation, but the longer you can raise the cut part of your body above the height of your heart always seems to reduce the flow of blood and speed up the initial clotting process! So this works very well for basic hand cuts. You'll almost certainly need to apply pressure and an antiseptic dressing as well.

What You'll Need

  • Antispectic Dressing
  • Bandaid to cover it after

What You'll Do

  • Hold the cut high
