In brief: Pressure maintain

In a trauma with subsequent lowering of blood pressure, first stop the bleeding.
Immediate direct pressure, tourniquet are options. Depending on what level of care one may are at, may consider volume expander such as hetastarch, IV fluid, and/or blood. Pressors such as dopamine, levophed, (norepinephrine) Epinephrine may also be used. Surgical exploration with ligation or repair of blood vessels may also be requ.
