Transcription: 
Bleeding control is an important part of first aid for first aid response. Most bleeding sites can be stopped by direct pressure, meaning by taking some absorbing material, like gauze, and holding it directly over, with some pressure, this area. If the bleeding is difficult to, it may be necessary, depending on your resources, to call 9-1-1 and wait for paramedics to arrive. If you can get the bleeding to stop or at least to minimize, then you can likely transport the baby or child yourself to the Emergency Room. In many cases, it depends on the kind of resources you have in the moment. Again, most bleeding can be stopped, by you in the house, with direct pressure.
