Bleeding can occur internally, where blood leaks from blood vessels inside the body, or externally, either through a natural opening such as mouth, nose, ear, urethra, vagina or anus, or through a break in the skin. Uncontrolled bleeding can rapidly lead to shock and death. </p></li><li><p>HAEMORRHAGEDEFINITION The term haemorrhage refers to a large amount of bleeding in a short time.

It may also occur due to some bleeding disorder or tumors. Bleeding may be external or internal. Signs and symptoms depend on extent of blood loss. It is classified into four classes according to blood loss. W.H.O has set a standard grading schedule to assess level of blood loss. Uncontrolled bleeding can lead to hemorrhagic shock and even death. So immediate measures are taken to control bleeding and blood products and fluids are administered to replace fluid volume. Patient is monitored continuously and assessed to check patients response to therapy. </p></li><li><p>REFERENCES Brunner &amp; Suddharts Textbook of Medical Surgical Nursing, vol 2, 12th ed, 2010: pp 2161 2163 Colmer ; Moroneys Surgery for Nurses, 16th ed, 1981 : pp 98 106 Howard, Steinmann, Sheehys emergency nursing principles &amp; practice, 6th ed, 2003 pp ; Thygerson, Gulli &amp; Krohmer, First Aid, 5th ed, 2006 : pp 23 27 http://www.google.com/bleeding-wikipedia http://europepmc.org/abstract/MED/6517266 </p></li><li><p>**</p></li></ul>
