How does one know they lost too much blood?

I had a friend who was wrestling and play fighting with his cousin. He fell into a sliding glass door. The glass shattered and he cut his arm really bad all the way around it. Around his bicep and triceps.
He said blood was just gushing out. He said as he laid there bleeding out everything started to go dark and he said it sounded like people were talking in slow motion.
A nurse who happened to live in his apartment complex happened to see what happened and ran in and wrapped a towel around his arm and pulled it tight. He said he could see and hear everything normal after that.

Very interesting answer. because I remember when I was a kid and another kid, came up behind me with a rope or wire, and started choking me with it, I experienced the very same thing you have just described! (The kid choked me so fast and suddenly I had no idea what had happened until I "came to" and some other guys were laughing at me because I had this "dull look" on my face.) By hindsight and reading your answer I know that stupid punk came within seconds of killing me!

You'll know when you've lost to much blood, because you will feel dizzy, weak and when you lose enough you will pass out and eventually death.

Actually there is a very good chance you WILL NOT know, because you will be DEAD or at least unconscious.

To FreudianSlip: Yeah, thank you, I'm glad to be around myself, most of the time anyway, except when I fall into bouts of deep depression or melancholy. The kid that did that to me, was just horseplaying. The real interesting thing was this happened in a classroom, and the teacher had no clue what was going on. At the time I was a rather spindly kid, and I don't think I would have stood a chance against that kid, with or without the garrote.
Report as
To FreudianSlip again. I should qualify my story by saying there was no blood, and the kid probably used a shoestring or a leather belt or strap on me. I just remember all of a sudden people talking slow and the edges of my vision going dark or black. Like I said I had no clue what had happened. I just found myself on the floor!

I know that when I had a c-section I almost died because of blood loss. I had to get several blood transfusions. I know what happened to me was I could feel that I was very weak, then I threw up, then things started getting very blurry and the last thing I remember was a few people feeling of my arms and neck searching for a vein to give me some blood. But I didn't see them doing it. It's like I couldn't see right then but I could feel it. After that I don't remember anything else until I woke up in the recovery room. It was very scary. The doctor said that I almost died. So that's what I experienced with my blood loss situation.
