How do I stop bleeding or deal with being impaled?

I was just impaled, and it is critical that I know how to stop the bleeding. I am losing a lot of blood, and I fear that I am going to pass out soon. A serrated 7-inch long chunk of metal lodged into my side, and punctured something major enough to result in heavy blood loss. Is there something I should do to treat... show more I was just impaled, and it is critical that I know how to stop the bleeding. I am losing a lot of blood, and I fear that I am going to pass out soon. A serrated 7-inch long chunk of metal lodged into my side, and punctured something major enough to result in heavy blood loss. Is there something I should do to treat this? Should I pull it out? Is there a way to stop the blood? Please get back to me ASAP! I need to fix this, I have work in 3 hours.
