You are out working in the yard when you hear your neighbor screaming for help. She runs out onto the front porch with a dish towel oaked in blood wrapped around her right wrist. She tells you she was moving her glass-top coffee table when the glass cracked and sliced into her wrist. You remove the towel to inspect the injury and note bright red blood spurting form the wound.

3. If you fail to control the bleeding, what steps would you take next?
4. What signs and symptoms would heighten your suspicion that the victim is going into shock?
