The purpose of this video presentation is to provide emergency responders an overview or refresher of key principles of wound packing. Wound packing is performed during the indirect threat care phase of an incident when there is no active threat. It may be used to control severe bleeding in places where tourniquets are not effective, such as bleeding near the junction of the torso and a limb.
