Medical Treatment for Internal Bleeding
Initial treatment of internal bleeding will include stabilizing the patient, meaning that the ABCs of resuscitation take priority for the care provider.
Specific treatment for internal bleeding depends upon the source of the bleeding. The common goal for treatment is to find the source of bleeding and stop it. At the same time, treatment will be directed to repair or stabilize any damage that the bleeding caused.
Once the acute situation has resolved, treatment will be aimed at correcting the underlying cause of the bleeding and to prevention of future episodes.
