What should one do first in case of an Avulsion Injury?

  • One of the first steps is to somehow stop the bleeding. If you are home or at a place where a first aid kit is handy, then use the gauze dressings to cover the wound and exert a little pressure to slow the bleeding. 

  • Antiseptic solution or sprays should be used to prevent contamination or infection. 

  • Once the bleeding has slowed down, use a fresh dressing to cover the wound and secure it. 

  • If the wound is at a delicate place such as a near an important artery or organ, than rush the person to the hospital immediately.
