How is internal bleeding treated?
The initial treatment plan of any patient with internal
bleeding begins with assessing the patient's stability and making certain the ABCs are
well maintained. This includes making certain the patient's:
Airway is open,
the patient is Breathing, and
there is adequate Circulation, meaning stable
pulse rate and blood
The definitive treatment of internal bleeding depends upon where the bleeding
located, the individual situation, and the stability of the patient. The
basic goals include identifying and stopping the source of bleeding and
repairing any damage that the bleeding may have caused.
In patients who take anti-coagulation medications and have significant bleeding, medication reversal of the anti-coagulation may need to occur.
