Hemorrhagic shock is an urgent medical issue, and if you suspect that you or someone you know may be experiencing it, you should call a doctor right away. Telltale symptoms are cool, moist, pale skin, and mental confusion or anxiety. Blood loss, tissue damage, and organ failure may continue unabated without treatment. While you await medical care, you should keep the sick person warm and lying down with feet up, unless there is an injury in which the person should not move.
