Answer

Minor bleeding, as from cuts and abrasions, may respond to conservative measures, such as pressure and ice. Mild hematuria may subside spontaneously. Do not aspirate hematomas or joints or cauterize bleeding sites unless specifically indicated, because these procedures may aggravate the bleeding.
