Direct pressure to the bleeding.

Keeping Batwing in a dimly lit area at an 85 degree temperature to minimize stress and the need to expend energy keeping his body temperature up. This can be achieved by surrounding a small cage with a heating pad set at its lowest setting.

Don't apply anything to the bleeding area until it's thoroughly clotted lest you disrupt the clot and it begins to bleed again.

Please give me an update on Batwing.
