In TF2, when a player is set on fire, most healing will put the player out so that she will not suffer anymore damage. I wonder if the same is true of bleeding.

Is there anyway to stop bleeding damage early, short of death?

Picking up a health pack should now stop ongoing bleed damage (there was a period where it did not).

Unlike Afterburn, which can be put out with healing (from medi-guns and dispensers at least) , bleed effects will always tick for the full duration in the absence of health kits.

The wiki has more information.
