I was slicing some potatos on a mandolin and took a chunk out of my ring finger on my right hand. This was about 1.5 hours ago just loosened the bandage because i think i was cutting off circulation it was all tingly but i couldn't feel it otherwise. it was still bleeding pretty good when i checked it. I don't know what they could do at the ER the chuck is totaly missing so they can't stich it up. but i can't keep the ciculation cut off. Does anyone know anything i can do to stop the bleeding? I know to lay down apply direct pressure and keep it elevated. sorry about the typos and run on sentences i have to type while laying on the couch and only left handed.
