1. Calm and reassure the victim. Put on latex gloves or wash your hands.
2. Check for bleeding. If the bite is not bleeding severely, wash it well (for at least 5 minutes) with mild soap and running water, then apply a bandage. If the bite is actively bleeding, control bleeding by applying direct pressure to the bite; by elevating the injured area; and, if necessary, by using pressure point bleeding control. Do not attempt to clean a wound that is actively bleeding.
3. Get medical help.
The book is outdated and should be removed from circulation.
I would recommend everyone take the Red Cross courses, and use this book as a refresher or reference to keep your skills fresh.
Get this book if you want to be prepared to take care of emergencies, and to prevent situations that lead to emergencies.
