During and in the aftermath of a survival incident, or even if you are camping or just working in the backyard, there are literally dozens of ways you could end up cutting, scraping, hacking and even stabbing yourself.
If the wound is severe enough, bleeding can become a major issue and potentially one that could kill you or severely weaken you to the point of not being able to function.
Severe loss of blood can lead to fatigue, clouded judgment, and delirium, rendering the injured person unable to perform even basic functions.
In that case, quick action can mean the difference between life and death, but in a survival situation, you may not have the required first aid items at your disposal!
