How do you deal with a wound to a hand?

It depends on where the wound is. If the wound is vertical then you would dress an open palm but if the wound is horizontal then you would encourage the casualty to make a fist - watch the video to find out how.

Have a go! See if you can perform a dressing with a wound that is horizontal (the fist one)? Then see if you can perform the correct dressing for a wound that is vertical (the open palm one)
