Types of Bleeding and Their Severity

Arterial Bleeding: The Most Serious

**Arterial bleeding** represents the gravest form of bleeding. It is characterized by bright red blood that pulses or spurts from the wound.

Venous Bleeding: A Continuous Flow

**Venous bleeding** presents as a continuous flow of blood, and it typically appears much darker in color compared to arterial bleeding.

Capillary Bleeding: Minor Scratches and Grazes

**Capillary bleeding** usually results from minor scratches or grazes. These wounds are often small and heal easily, often without the need for treatment.
