Lacerations & Wound Care

Lacerations are cuts or open wounds. All cuts need first aid, but some lacerations may also need medical treatment.

Symptoms may include:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Difficulty moving joints

Seek immediate medical assistance if blood is spurting from a cut or you are unable to stop the bleeding after 15 minutes of applying direct pressure.
