🏩If an amputation is complete, control the bleeding after cleansing the site by covering the wound with a pressure dressing. 
Wrap the amputated part in sterile saline soaked gauze and place it in a watertight container or resealable plastic bag. 
Place the protected part in an iced saline container. 
Do not allow the damaged part to come in direct contact with ice.
