I have used a product called Quikclot. An EMT told me about it as he had used it in the service and I found it at Quikclot.com. It is a type of gauze that has something in it that causes the blood to clot.
I have had a number of cuts or skin "fractures" that have bled badly. With the Coumadin, a heavy bleeding incident is not abnormal. The Quikclot pad is put over the area that is bleeding and pressed for a few minutes. It stops the bleeding.
