Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear Sir
Welcome to HC
I would like you to see your cardiologist on priority. Do not panic. It may be a normal phenomenon where already existing blood spreads through the tissue layers but it may be fresh bleeding, especially if the swelling at the site of puncture is increasing. If he looks pale too? if he has higher heart rates now? These indicate fresh bleed.
To clear the scenario, please get him examined by your cardiologist and proceed accordingly.
