How Does a Wound Bleed?

January 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 277

When you think about it the circulatory system of a human body is the most important system of your body. The circulatory system is powered by the heart as all of us know.

The heart pumps, via the circulatory system of the body, nutrients that are important for the body and distributes them all through the body; nutrients such as oxygen, disease fighting cells and many more.

According to a research by the Utah Health Education Network when a human being approaches the age of seventy they will have pumped at an average about a hundred and eighty million quarts of blood throughout the entire body.

Bleeding is a phenomenon that affects the circulatory system of the body. Although the circulatory system of the body is a closed system the system can be interrupted when tissues are wounded and the wound opens the circulatory system to the surrounding environment causing bleeding.

There are three types of wound bleeding that can occur. Arterial wound bleeding, Venus wound bleeding and Capillary wound bleeding. Let's discuss these in detail.

The first kind of wound bleeding is called arterial bleeding. Arterial Wound and bleeding caused due to them is a very dangerous situation. These wounds are the kind of wounds that are categorized as being one of the most dangerous. These wounds can make a person quickly bleed to death.

Arteries present in the human body are responsible for transporting oxygenated blood from the heart to the tissues of one's body. A deep wound, which can affect the artery, pumps blood out with each beat of the heart. The blood that gushes out is usually bright red in color as it is filled with oxygen.

The second kind of bleeding is due to venus wounds and is called venous bleeding. Veins present in the human body do the opposite of what arteries do. They take the used blood from the tissues and transport it back to the heart. This is done to replenish the spent blood with oxygen and send it back out to the body.

Bleeding that occurs from venous wounds is slower compared to arterial wounds and the blood trhat comes out is much darker in color.

Finally the third kind of bleeding called capillary bleeding is due to capillary wounds. Capillaries are small blood vessels present in the body that helps blood rich in oxygen and nutrients reach the body's tissues. As capillaries do not have a lot of pressure inside them a capillary wound bleeds very slowly and is easy to treat.
