Firefighter/Paramedic for a busy department in S.Cali here. With a complete amputation the blood vessels actually retract back into the stump itself, so the bleeding itself isn't all that bad, it just looks pretty ugly. Some injuries on bikes are gonna happen no matter what gear your wearing, this may be one of them. The best type of gear around is the one that's HOPEFULLY in a helmet!!
