In brief: Cardiac Arrest

Ultimately, if you lose too much blood (or blood pressure), your heart cannot continue to function properly and cardiac arrest will take place.
This is technically death; but, if emergency resuscitation is performed in a timely fashion, it is possible to bring someone back from severe blood loss.
