    The technical term for bleeding is haemorrhaging and involves blood escaping from a blood vessel. Bleeding may be external as a result of an injury creating a wound. It may also be internal. In this case, blood leaks from a vessel inside the body, either as a result of illness or following surgery. Controlling bleeding is an important aspect of first aid.
