Answer – Latex gloves
2. When you are faced with a bleeding injury, when should you replace blood soaked gauze?
Answer – Never. Do not remove blood soaked dressings, as you should place new dressings over the blood soaked ones. Leaving these in place will help “clot” the wound and control bleeding. It’s natural to think that once a gauze dressing becomes blood soaked it needs to be removed, but doing so will only start the bleeding again and bring you back to square one.
