Dr. First off i want to say thank you for this forum and thank you for sharing your precious time with us.

Learning First aid is like buying a gold bar it's worth more than we will ever think. ok ok to my question

Now most of us know how to stop or control bleeding. My question is how you repair yourself after you have controlled the wound, whether it is from a stab wound, gunshot or just plain bad luck and hurting yourself. I'm trying to learn on the whole actual fixing yourself after you have stopped bleeding.

Thank you

God Speed

Many injured veins and small blood vessels will stop on their own. With larger arteries, there's not much to do other than keep applying pressure until you get to a medical facility. It would be hard for the most experienced vascular surgery to try to reattach a blood vessel in a non-medical setting.

If you need to know about pressure dressings, I have a post at my website. I, also, have a post on the difference in arteries and veins.

Has anyone heard of or used butterbur?

It can help allergies or migraines.

Thank you, I got the whole pressure dressing applying procedures down and how to control bleeding. I know i'm 99% sure i'm screwed if one of the main arteries are cut.

Iím trying to look at this from a, there is no medical facilityís out there and youíre on your own or with your selective group setting prospective.

Arteries are tough, elastic tubes that carry blood away from the heart, and veins carry the blood to the heart.

My most recent two posts are on the most common ailments women will face in disasters. Men, too. Just not as common.

Unless you're in air-conditioning, everybody hurts during heat waves. No matter how healthy, some die. In fact, on average more die of heat strokes in the U.S. than all disasters combined. I have a new series on tips to manage/cope/adapt. Have any of you had experiences or tips to share? www.TheSurvivalDoctor.com

I have a couple of new posts. One on how to deal with nuclear power plant threats and another on taking potassium iodide. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I bet you'd be surprised about some of the most common animals that carry rabies these days. Also, what to do until you can get the shots. http://www.thesurvivaldoctor.com/2012/06/12/rabies/

Karnus, I'm not sure what you mean specifically. I have a medical electrocautery and can cauterize tiny blood vessels to keep bleeding down. Other than that, I'm not sure.
