In brief: Control of bleeding

If it is an extremity bleeding they can prevent it by pressure dressings or a tourniquet.
If bleeding frm gastrointestinal tract , they may have start an IV to give a fluid blouse to keep the BP up.

In brief: Pressure

Direct pressure on the site of bleeding is the best way to control the blood loss.
