Hemorrhage

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Hemorrhage: Bleeding or the abnormal flow of blood.

A hemorrhage may be "external" and visible on the outside of the body or "internal," where there is no sign of bleeding outside the body. Bleeding from a cut on the face is an external hemorrhage. Bleeding into the spleen or liver are examples of internal hemorrhage.

The term "hemorrhagic" comes from the Greek "haima," blood + rhegnumai," to break forth; a free and forceful escape of blood.
