tate what measures should be taken when a person is losing blood from a wound caused by cutting.

In slight cases of bleeding place the finger over the cut and after a few minutes put on a plaster or bandage.
In cases of severe bleeding, when the blood is bright red (that is arterial), pressure must be applied immediately between the wound and the heart to stop the supply of blood.

This can best be done by applying a knotted handkerchief, twisted by means of a pocket knife, so that the knot may press in the proper place. In the case of venous bleeding (the blood is dark red) the pressure should be applied below the wound away from the heart, and the limb should be raised.
