Stand up and raise your hand to as far above your head as possible. This will stop, or minimize bleeding.

Makes sense now that you've said it, but I wouldn't have thought about it! Thanks.

If I ever cut myself bad enough I'll probably raise both arms above my head and flail them around maniacally while barking nonsensical crazy speak. :D (good tip though!)

You can try this without cutting yourself.

 

Put one hand on the table, and raise the other hand above your head for a minute..

 

Immediately lower the hand on the table. You will see one hand is much whiter than the other.

Bleeding can be good: it cleans out the wound and lowers our blood pressure.

Hard to do when you need to drive yourself to the ER...

I cut myself on the table saw.

 

I drove to the ER with one hand on my head. Not a problem. Much easier than texting.

 

If the ladies can apply mascara while driving, you can drive with one hand. :-)

How do you cut yourself on a table saw? Hand too close? Pushed through something you shouldn't have? I know it happens, but unless you were in the industry I can't imagine being careless enough to have it happen. I'm curious.

Oh it can happen. Be in too big of a hurry to finish up so you can get to your paying job. Don't use a push stick because you are in a hurry. Kickback happens, hand goes forward. Oh yeah it can happen. Don't ask me how I know.

you ever seen a professional welder work? that stuff is terrifying. I think alot of tradespeople eschew safety precautions for speed.

Some of us just do crazy stuff like cutting in-hand (moi).  Some of us also have sub-clinical siezures, they're so mild you don't even know it, but they can make those little accidents happen, specially for those of us who cut in-hand...

 

But you know I've suffered a whole lot less since rounding off the corner at the heel.  Now that's something I don't understand, how anyone can work safely with a sharp corner there.
