Improvised Woundpacking

Wound packing with improvised materials, in this case an old t-shirt. Important to note: as there is no haemostatic agent in the t-shirt, there will be no enhanced forming of a clot. It is therefore important that maximum pressure is applied during the woundpacking, but also after the wound is packed. So not 3 minutes of pressure, but continous pressure until the casualty is brought to medical care.
