As you approach, a pedestrian is being dragged from underneath the car. Their leg is partially amputated below the knee and blood is gushing out at an alarming rate. The patient also has some lacerations to their face and arms. The scene is safe to approach, and the patient is in a semi-conscious state. Bystanders have already called 999. What should you first look to manage

You apply pressure on the wound and use a belt to try and tourniquet the limb. You manage to tighten the belt and lock it off. The bleeding is still present but at a lower rate now. Can you class this as managed and move onto assessing the airway
With bleeding still present, the patient is at risk of bleeding out. Ideally, what next action can you do to stem the bleeding

Given the potential injuries which manoeuvre should you use to help manage the airway

You check that the patient is breathing and confirm pulses are still present. You note blood is pooling underneath the patients’ shirt. You look and find a large laceration on their abdomen with a lot of blood oozing. What action can you do to stem the bleeding
You place a dressing and apply pressure to the wound. This stems the bleeding. You can see an Ambulance approaching. The crew rush over to you with equipment and you give a handover of what’s happened. Which of the following will you handover
