Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You need to splint the hand and keep it elevated as well.
It is better to go to the ER to stop the bleeding.
Also avoid any blood thinner like aspirin.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
